Welcome from the Chairman
We are delighted that Malham Show is able to take place this year, the show is such a huge event in our community and it will be great to welcome everyone back. Thank you very much for your support, I hope you have a fantastic day!
As ever our hard working committee have been working behind the scenes to enable the show to go ahead, to enable us to manage this there will be a few changes to ensure the show runs safely. We are encouraging contactless payments on the gate, there will be hand sanitiser stations around the show ground and we have introduced a one way system in the produce marquee.
This year we are pleased to welcome back many popular attractions including ‘Junior Kickstart’, Langstroth Gun Dogs, Sheep Shearing and Sheep dog demonstrations!! There are also a whole host of events and attractions to be enjoyed, including the Dales Food & Craft marquee, children’s sports, dog classes and vintage vehicles to name but a few.
Both the Cattle and Sheep sections always display a wealth of quality and this year we celebrate The Swaledale Sheep Breeders Centenary Year by awarding the champion male and female sheep with a beautifully hand carved shepherds crook.
In the afternoon we have the fell race, this is a thrilling spectacle for the crowd at Malham Show; it is amazing to watch the talented runners compete in such a spectacular setting.
The final attraction of the day is a ‘Speed Sheep Shearing Competition’, many skilful local sheep shearers will be going head to head for their chance to be crowned the ‘Fastest Sheep Shearer’, this will provide an extremely entertaining finale to the day.
This is my final year as Chair of Malham Show, it has been an honour and a privilege to stand over the past 4 years. I am handing the reins over to Garry Schofield from 2022 and I would like to wish him all the very best and I am sure he will do a fantastic job.
With thanks to all the landowners, committee members, volunteers and stewards who all make the show possible.
Phillip Hargreaves | Chair

Really glad we decided to visit Malham this weekend, lovely cows and sheep to see close up, brought some lovely meat pies (duck/pork+rhubarb, and chicken and chorizo ) some beautiful creamy milk (just about to be made into rice pudding ) ice cream and amazing banana, sultana and apricot fruit loaf. So glad the Sun was shining.
