At one of our local agricultural shows you would expect to see cows and sheep but camels? This year at the Nidderdale Show, Pateley Bridge, there is a special appearance by… JOSEPH’S AMAZING CAMELS! This is racing with a twist. There will be thrills and excitement as the camels and jockeys, specially trained by Joseph & Rebecca Fossett, race round the main ring in their fantastic Arab colours. The camels will also be on display all day so come along and meet these marvellous animals and learn all about them!
As well as the unusual there are also the regular favourites such as
- Terrier racing
- Young Farmers competitions,
- ATV (All Terrain Vehicles) Manoeuvrability Test,
- Sheep shearing,
- Vintage Tractors & Machinery,
- Trade Stands
- Produce and flower competitions
- Sheep and cattle competitions
Formed in 1895, the Annual Nidderdale Show has been held ever since in picturesque Bewerley Park, down by the river Nidd. It is a thoroughly good day out!
