116th Gargrave Show 22nd August 2020 Sheep Dog Trials TBC for 2020 (Free entry for Spectators) A MESSAGE FROM THE 2019 SHOW PRESIDENT  Welcome to Gargrave Show. I have been associated with Gargrave Show for over fifty years where, as a young lad, I started picking litter up on the Sunday morning after the show, which was then held in the field next to Johnson and Johnsons mill. My family have been farming at Gargrave for nearly ninety years. What an honour to be asked to be president of this traditional country show in the beautiful Yorkshire dales national park. We have all the delightful attractions that a country show needs, a great day for all. Cattle, sheep, show jumping and fell races, where there is something for everyone. There is no better show. Have a great day W.J Beckwith President ********************************************************************************* Great News: The Yorkshire Post Magazine of 8th June 2019 listed the Gargrave Show as being in the top 5 shows for the Summer. *********************************************************************************
