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

A warm welcome once again to beautiful Malhamdale and the annual Agricultural and Horticultural Show.

I am into my second year as Show chair and I am really looking forward to seeing you all here once again for an exciting and social day out for everyone.

There has been a lot happening behind the scenes in the past twelve months to bring you an even more enjoyable experience on show day with more attractions and classes aiming to showcase to everyone, the benefits these rural agricultural shows provide.

The show will continue in the same format as usual, centred around the high quality of cattle and sheep from the local area, the well supported horticultural and handicraft sections, some fresh attractions around the field, then culminating with the auction of produce and popular speed shearing competition at the end of the day.

All of this is through the support of my ever trusty hardworking enthusiastic volunteers and committee members.

It is my pleasure to welcome as president for 2023 Mr Roger Rand from Malham village itself. The Rand family have been great supporters of the Show and have been involved in the organisation of the show from the very day they moved to Malham, many years ago. We wish them and their guests a truly deserved enjoyable day at the show.

Many thanks once again to all those involved, the landowners, committee member and volunteers and you, the general public, for your ongoing support.

I look forward to seeing everyone 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.
