Tickets for this year’s Great Yorkshire Show have gone on sale as organisers the Yorkshire Agricultural Society plan to make the event as “weatherproof” as possible.

About £500,000 has been set aside for measures aimed at ensuring England’s premier agricultural show does not fall victim to bad weather.

Last year the show lost two days after unprecedented wet weather made much of the car parking unuseable.

Nigel Pulling, chief executive said: “We never want to be in that situation again. It was heartbreaking to have to cancel the show, so we’ll be doing as much as we can to maintain what is the country’s finest farming showcase.”

Show dates for this year are Tuesday, July 9, to Thursday, July 11, at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate.
