Great Yorkshire Show & Gen Z

Great Yorkshire Show Logo

Tuesday 14 – Thursday 16 July 2020

The Great Yorkshire Show provides the perfect opportunity to extend your students’ learning outside of the classroom. Not only will they be immersed in Yorkshire’s biggest celebration of food, farming and rural life, but they can also experience ‘hands-on’ learning.


Gen Z

Designed especially for teenagers Gen Z is our FREE addition to the Great Yorkshire Show. Inspiring future generations with the exciting careers associated with farming, food  and rural industries.

Students can take the opportunity to speak to Universities and local colleges about the opportunities of further education linked to the Countryside and all it boasts. How the latest technology, science and engineering is harnessed in agriculture and related industries.

Gen Z is a space full of hands-on interactive activities to enjoy. Students can discover what really interests them with the potential to spark future career path choices.

More information about Gen Z 2020 will be released soon.

All activities in Gen Z are funded by The Yorkshire Agricultural Society. Activities are subject to change without notice.



There will be endless opportunities for students to engage with potential employers and industry specialists where curriculum learning can be linked to careers (Gatsby Benchmark 4). They can also explore further study prospects with the numerous colleges and universities that will be exhibiting across the showground.
