Members

Become a member of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS) and enjoy some great benefits while supporting the farming community. Existing members can also renew their membership online.

2022 Membership Now Closed

This year we will be limiting visitor numbers attending the Great Yorkshire Show 2022 which means we have now reached capacity for members.

Tickets are still available for members of the public but applications for YAS membership are now closed.

Membership for competitors is still available to purchase when submitting entries. If you have already submitted an entry form, including membership, your order will still be processed.

Numbers were capped this year based on feedback from both our members and visitors in 2021, who enjoyed their visits more due to areas at the Show being less busy.

We sincerely thank you for your invaluable support which allows us to make a real difference to the agricultural industry and to Yorkshire’s farming communities all year round.

Membership for 2023 will open later this year.

Tickets for the Great Yorkshire Show are available to purchase online or by calling our ticket line 01423 541222 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm).

2023 Membership 

Membership for 2023 will  be available to purchase online or by phone as from 1 November 2022.

Member Benefits

The YAS is a registered charity which champions and supports farming, food and the countryside whilst raising awareness of the tireless work that goes into maintaining our rural landscapes and producing food for our plates.

Your support also means we can offer an extensive program of education events, free to schools, from teacher training courses to Countryside Days for more than 6,000 primary school children.
