Models are wanted to join professionals on the catwalk at one of England's most popular farming and countryside events. 

This Great Yorkshire Show, in Harrogate, opens on Tuesday, July 11, and runs until Friday, July 14.

This year's event will have a fashion show, 'From Sheep to Chic', to highlight the link between the sheep we see in fields and the creation of wool clothing.

Organisers are looking for five to six people to model top of the range outfits alongside TV personalities, such as Anita Rani, singer Lizzie Jones, Paralympian Hannah Cockroft, weather presenter Jon Mitchell, and the Yorkshire vets Julian Norton and Peter Wright.

No experience is needed as training will be given for the show, which will be led by model and fashion event organiser, Bernadette Gledhill.

Charles Mills, the show director said: "We are delighted to champion the importance of wool and the vital role that British sheep farmers play in the production of this versatile natural product.

"The title of our fashion shows, “From Sheep to Chic” sums this up precisely and the new venue for the shows could not be more appropriate.

"For the first time they will be held on the stage in the sheep shearing area, next to more than 2,000 sheep which will be shown in the competitive classes.

"The link is clear: without sheep the wool industry would be a shadow of what it is today, without sheep farmers there would be a huge gap in British agriculture and our iconic countryside would be a pale imitation of the past."

From Sheep to Chic will take place daily at 12.30 on the Sheep Shearing Stage, which is close to Brown Gate.

The fashion shows are sponsored by tailors, Brook Taverner, and supported by British Wool.
