There is plenty to see at Malham Show, from sheep & cattle, horses & working dogs to music and even axemen displays!


Why not join in with one of our events that are open to all on the day. We think there is something to suit everyone.


Malham Show takes place beneath the backdrop of Malham Cove in the village of Malham in the Yorkshire Dales.

Welcome To Malham Show 2022

Garry Schofield

Welcome to the beautiful Malhamdale, and its show. Your support is greatly appreciated, and I hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable day.

I introduce myself as your new chairman and welcome the opportunity to put back something into the community that played such an integral part of my younger years.

After two years of upheaval and uncertainty I hope to bring you a show with renewed vigour, interests and fun for all. I’m fortunate enough to have the full support of an ever hard working and enthusiastic committee to help me with the task.

The show will continue on the same format as usual centred around the high quality cattle and sheep competition combined with the well supported horticulture and handicraft sections and new attractions within the main ring and around the show field – culminating in a highly competitive speed shearing competition towards the end of the day. 

It is my pleasure to have as presidents in my first year the Thwaite Brothers from Crakemoor – a noted family active in the Malhamdale community and longstanding supporters of the show. We wish them a truly deserved enjoyable day at the show. 

Thanks to all the landowners, committee members, volunteers and stewards. I look forward to seeing you all on show day.

Garry Schofield, Chairman

What people are saying…

I went to the Show on Saturday and had one of the best days and everyone I spoke to was so charming and fun. My highlight was the walling competition!

Can I just say we went to Malham Show today, What a fabulous family day out. So well organised, all of the activities were great…we have teenagers who can be difficult to please, however they particularly enjoyed the kids on motorbikes and the Show Jumping but everything was great!!! The prices were also very competitive. Thank you to all of the organisers and volunteers we will definitely be back next year.

I just want to say what a great show it was last Saturday. I’ve been going to Malham Show for well over 50 years (!) and never seen it so well organised or such a pleasure to attend. Everything from car parking, show field layout, bars & surrounding areas, quality of exhibits, trade stands and ringside entertainment were all brilliantly done.
While still very much a traditional country show It is clear that a great deal of thought has gone in to make it a quality day out for both locals and visitors, making full use of modern tweaks like card scan for entry. They always say you can’t get a quart out of a pint pot but on this relatively small show field the Malham committee prove you definitely can. A credit to all involved.
