Peter Wright will appear on the chat shows on Thursday and participate in the fashion shows on Friday. He says: “I am absolutely delighted to be back at the Great Yorkshire Show again this year. I’m looking forward to being on the GYS Stage to talk all things Yorkshire Vet on the Thursday, then later in the Garden Show with Martin Fish, and then on Farm to Fashion Show catwalk on the Friday. This really is the highlight of my year – unmissable!”

Rob and Dave Nicholson

Rob Nicholson, who will be on stage with his brother Dave on Friday, comments: “We are really looking forward to being guest speakers at the Great Yorkshire Show. It is an event we whole-heartedly look forward to each year, not just as an opportunity to showcase our animals – of which we are rightly proud – but also for the chance to meet like-minded people interested in this industry to share ideas and support each other. It’s a real honour to be asked to be involved and we really hope we can share some of the lessons we’ve learned along the way.”

Influencer Coverage

Farming influencers Olly Harrison and Joe Seels will also cover the Great Yorkshire Show, broadcasting the event to their thousands of YouTube followers. Arable farmer Olly, from Liverpool with over 500,000 social media followers, will attend on Tuesday, participating in the 12noon Farm to Fashion Show at the Sheep Shearing Stage, among other activities.

South Yorkshire farmer, YouTuber, and Tiktoker Joe Seels will attend on Wednesday, also modelling in the 12noon Farm to Fashion Show. Joe says: “For me, the Great Yorkshire Show is a fantastic showcase of all things farming and country life. I particularly love looking around the tractors and machinery sections. The pedigree cattle are also not to be missed, and our children love the kids’ activity areas. It really is a full, fun, family day out.”

Daily Activities

Throughout the Great Yorkshire Show, two Farm to Fashion shows will take place on the Sheep Shearing Stage at 12 noon and 4:30 pm every day, apart from Friday, when they will occur at 12 noon and 3 pm. Hosted by radio presenter Nick Hancock, the shows will feature collections from a wide range of both national and regional designers, including a selection of brand partners from British Wool. This will highlight the role of UK sheep farmers as the starting point for some of the most stylish and environmentally friendly garments seen on catwalks anywhere.
