Members

Become a member of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS) and enjoy some great benefits while supporting the farming community.

In line with COVID-19 Government Guidelines, we are limiting the number of members attending the Great Yorkshire Show 2021. As such, YAS membership is now closed.

Thank you to all our members. We look forward to welcoming you to the Show. Your valued support allows us to make a real difference to the agricultural industry and to Yorkshire’s farming communities all year round. Membership for 2022 will open later this year.

Great Yorkshire Show 2021

The countdown is on for a very special 162nd Great Yorkshire Show, this year the Show will run over four days for the first time in its history (Tuesday 13 – Friday 16 July 2021).

As a member of the Society you do NOT need to buy tickets to the Show. There is no need for you to pre-book the days you plan to attend, as we welcome our members on all four days.

You will receive your Show packs by the end of June and these will include most things that you need for this year’s event.  Please note, however, that you will need to bring your membership card with you each day you attend the Show. This was issued to you when you joined this year. This card will be your entry ticket to the Show each day, as it carries a barcode which is linked to your record and is required for NHS Track & Trace purposes.

So please check that you have your card as entry will not be given without it. If you cannot find your membership card, please call us on 01423 541222 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) and we can re-issue you a replacement.

You will still receive your string badge(s), however, these will only give access to member facilities once you’re in the Show.

A few other points to note:

  • Members’ Guest Passes are now available to order. Call us on 01423 541222 (Mon-Fri 9am – 5pm). Numbers are capped for each day and are available on a strictly first come first served basis
  • Members’ catering is also available to book direct. Please email info@cgceventcaterers.co.uk in the first instance
  • Members’ Grandstand seating will be socially distanced and seats will be clearly marked
  • Paid for Grandstand seating will be available to book online or via our ticket line from 15 June 2021
  • We ask that you also check the latest Covid-19 Guidelines before you attend the Show, including our Visitor Code of Conduct which can be found here

There will be lots more information provided in your newsletter, which will be included with your Show pack, so please do take a look through when it arrives.

We look forward to welcoming you to this year’s Great Yorkshire Show!
