Countryside Days

Tuesday 11th June & Wednesday 12th June – NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR 2019

FREE event for KS2 children from Yorkshire Primary Schools 

Countryside Days offers Key Stage 2 children the opportunity to experience all aspects of food, farming, the countryside and healthy living. The day will involve a variety of workshops and arena displays including rural crafts, birds of prey, farm animals, the legendary Sheep Show, pond dipping and many more. The event starts at 9.30am and ends at 2.30pm and includes 6 interactive sessions which will be timetabled for your group prior to the day. As this event is a major focus of the charitable activities undertaken by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, there is no charge for schools attending.
