Skelton Show will be held on Saturday 3rd July 2021
Coronavirus Update | 25th March 2020
As a consequence of the government’s decision on 23rd March, the Skelton Show Horticultural and Agricultural Society has now no choice but to cancel this year’s show due to take place on Saturday 4th July 2020 despite the committee’s optimism and stoical attitude to try to carry on.
Colin Atkinson, Show Chairman said “As a committee, normally we worry about whether the rain will ‘stop play’ but this year in these unprecedented times the decision to go ahead is now no longer an option and out of our hands. We know our traditional agricultural show is a highlight of the year for many people, including our exhibitors and traders, but our enthusiasm won’t be permanently dampened - we are already working on the 2021 show which will be held on Saturday 3rd July. We look forward to seeing you all next year!”
With an attendance of over 10,000, the Skelton Show is the largest village show in the North of England and is a real showcase for all that is good about our countryside; the show is situated in a picturesque setting at Hutton-in-the-Forest near Penrith, Cumbria. (M6 J41)
Wow - what a great show we had in 2019. Glorious weather, a record crowd and the high standard of entries all created the perfect atmosphere for a truly memorable show. The picturesque location at `Hutton-in-the-Forest’ was the setting the 125th annual show - a very special milestone which was celebrated in style.
As the overnight clouds cleared, the fine sunny weather provided a perfect backdrop as the car parks rapidly filled to see the field come alive. People came from all over the world and the overwhelming response was ‘everybody is so friendly - what a fantastic family day out’.
