Countryside Days

Tuesday 11th June and Wednesday 12th June 2019

Our annual event for KS2 children allows them to engage with and explore all that the countryside has to offer!  Groups will enjoy an action-packed day of ‘hands on’ interactive workshops & demonstrations which provide a wealth of cross-curricular learning. 

We timetable the day for your group to enjoy a variety of workshops and arena displays to ensure your day runs seamlessly. There are always stewards on hand to help you find your next location and we will provide you with maps and your timetable in advance.

This ever-popular FREE event is based here at the Great Yorkshire Showground and must be pre-booked (bookings will open in November). 


"I think for my group it was the experience of the whole day together that made it so popular - being with so many other children, with so much going  on and so many different animals and new experiences in one place."
Lord Deramore's Primary School, York

"It was an excellent school trip and the children will remember it as being one of the best."
Clifton with Rawcliffe Primary School, York

"The children were enthused about the whole event.  We had children experiencing things they were unlikely to ever consider such as learning about pig keeping, having a go at stone masonry, weaving, rope making, stone wall building etc.   An excellent day which went too quickly.   Even the teachers learned lots of new things."
Tadcaster East CP School, Nr Leeds

"Can't wait till next year. Our children generally don't have the opportunity to see or take part in these kind of experiences and because it is so well organised it makes it a stress free and enjoyable event for both staff and children. Thank you."
Knowleswood Primary School, Bradford


Each year we include a number of competitions which in the past have included cheese judging and model competitions. The details of this year’s competitions will be sent to schools once your booking is confirmed.
