Keith Aspden, chairman of the show, who is also a councillor for Fulford and Heslington, said: “I would thoroughly recommend that residents come along, enjoy the day and help raise money for local and national charities.

“2017 was a great year for the Fulford Show and I am confident that 2018 will be another fantastic show. The hard work and dedication of the people involved is crucial to what makes the Fulford Show such an excellent local event.”

The show will also include a craft and produce exhibition and competition at the Social Hall, which adults and children can take part in.

Classes include bakery, photography and painting, beer and winemaking, flowers, vegetables and arts and crafts.
