It is with a heavy heart, sadness and regret that the Directors and Trustees of Emley Show Society, have taken the difficult decision to cancel Emley Show 2021 which was due to be held on Saturday 7th August.
This situation is entirely due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions around holding events. With the current government advice and uncertainty over what the next few months have in store for us all, our directors and trustees were left with little choice but to cancel the show. The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and competitors has been, and always will be, our main priority.
Our section secretaries will be in communication with those involved and affected by this measure in due course.
Our support for local farmers and business remains. As we close the door on 2021 we can start to plan for Emley Show 2022, which will be held on Saturday 6th August 2022 at Factory Farm, Emley Moor. We all look forward to seeing you then!
Thank you all for your support of Emley Show and your understanding in this difficult time.
Emley Show is one of the best attended and respected agricultural days out in Yorkshire, and a great day out for all the family. It is a true agricultural show, and is held against a picturesque backdrop across Huddersfield and beyond. The amazing location ‘beneath the mast’ in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside allows families and exhibitors alike to enjoy a wide range of activities, agricultural events, country crafts, family entertainment and competitions. Last year around 12,000 visitors passed through the gates, attracting families from all over Huddersfield, Wakefield, Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield, Kirklees, Calderdale, Yorkshire and beyond.
The Emley Show society exists to promote agricultural interests and raise funds to support local enterprises and individuals who meet the criteria of our constitution. At the same time we hope we are providing an enjoyable family day out for the wider community.
Emley Show is over 120 years old – with the first show held in 1893. It has moved around a number of sites over the years, with the current one being Factory Farm on Emley Moor.
