This year’s show, on the new earlier date of Sunday June 29, has been re-launched to make it even more of a great value day out for families and promises to boast scores of new attractions.
Show chairman Michael Cleary said: “We’ve worked hard to make the show better than ever this year. We think will be a brilliant day at a local show with all the traditional attractions and plenty of new ones.”
“We wanted to make Malton Show a great value affordable day out for local families.
“So children 11 and under get in free, and we have launched discount advance tickets, on sale now in both Malton and Pickering.”
As well as the traditional livestock competitions, the show organisers have lined up new family attractions all be included in the ticket price.
