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 

Gary Schofield

Once again, a very warm welcome from the Malham Show committee and I, to the 2024 show season and the annual Malham Show and Sports. This is a day for us to offer you, the general public, a fantastic opportunity to integrate and enjoy a fun-filled, family day out with the rural community, at incredibly good value for money.  

The agricultural and horticultural classes continue to grow year on year. Showcasing the pride in, and quality of, the livestock in the local area. Our field attractions continue to entertain and educate one and all. As always, there are fresh attractions, culminating with the other popular speed shearing competition. This is all down to the support of our ever trusty, hard-working and enthusiastic volunteers and committee members.  

It is my pleasure to welcome as president for 2024 season, Mr David Hargreaves, a respected member of the Dale and a long-time supporter of the show, who truly deserves to have a special day. It is my privilege to have him as president in my final year as chairman and I hope he and his family have the day that they deserve.  

Many thanks once again to all those involved: the landowners, the committee members, the volunteers and you, the general public for your ongoing support, without which these local shows could not continue. I look forward to seeing you all on the 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.
