THE Great Yorkshire Show is celebrating its milestone 160th anniversary this year and the event is already off to a memorable start.

And for one couple, it was a particularly special day.

Liz Bailey and Chris Moorhouse from Bentley Grange Feed in Emley, Huddersfield, got married today at the show.

Singer Lizzie Jones also performed in the main ring, accompanied by the Royal Armoured Corps band, on the first day of the event.

And the singer also took the catwalk as part of a celebrity fashion show, with television presenters Anita Rani, John Shires and Jon Mitchell also modelling.

The three-day event includes live music, cookery demonstrations and entertainment.

In the judging rings thousands of animals will compete and the show finished with the prestigious Cock O’The North show jumping competition. For information visit
