Nidderdale’s Big Day Out
‘Pateley Show’, as the Nidderdale Show is affectionately known, is a traditional Dales agricultural Show which takes place in the beautiful surrounds of Bewerley Park, Pateley Bridge. It is one of the county’s foremost agricultural shows and regularly attracts crowds of 15,000. Our visitors can browse a wonderful display of the finest livestock, produce and crafts that the Dales have to offer. The Nidderdale Show traditionally marks the end of the agricultural show season.
After much discussion at a recent meeting of the Nidderdale Agricultural Society Show Committee, it was with great regret that the members present unanimously decided to cancel the Nidderdale Show due to take place this September.
This decision has not been taken lightly and is due to the many uncertainties and risks currently involved in the organisation of an event such as ours during the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic. The nature of our Show and showground is such that implementing the rules and regulations involved in delivering a Covid secure event would be extremely difficult to achieve and would place a huge burden of responsibility on our members and many volunteers, as well as expose the Society to unacceptable financial risks. Most importantly, the primary concern is the health and safety of everyone involved in organising the Show, of all those who attend the Show and of everyone in our local community.
The Committee look forward to putting on a bigger and better show on Monday, 19th September 2022 and would like to thank everyone for their past support for the show and hope that this may continue into the future.
Here’s a look back at some past Pateley Shows.
