Great Yorkshire Show 2012

After 3 months of unprecedented rainfall the organisers have had to take the difficult decision to cancel The Great Yorkshire Show on the evening of the first day (Tuesday 10th July) after suffering a further 30 minute deluge.   Sadly the car parks cannot now be used to park cars safely and so they simply couldn't continue.

The Great Yorkshire Show is the largest agricultural show in the UK and has never been previously been cancelled.
"This is a heartbreaking decision for everyone who loves the Great Yorkshire Show and is involved in making it so special"
