The Showman’s Show is the only outdoor show of its kind in the UK. The first Showman’s Show was held in 1984 at the Newark Showground, with only 80 or so exhibitors. Until 1989 the show was held every two years but due to demand, from exhibitors and show visitors alike, the then Lance Publications made the decision to hold the event annually. Initially it moved around the country but eventually settled at the Newbury Showground, which has been its home for the last 18 years. Today the show attracts nearly 5,000 visitors over two days and has in excess of 340 exhibitors, who show the most sophisticated structures, equipment and entertainment demanded by the event industry at large.

Great Yorkshire Show Director to Step Down

GYS logoAfter a decade at the helm of the Great Yorkshire Show and its sister event, Countryside Live, Bill Cowling is to step down as Show Director. Bill took on the role in 2005 after around four decades of involvement with the events’ organisers, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society.

The 2015 Great Yorkshire Show will be his tenth and last as Director, and the search for the new incumbent begins.

Making the announcement, Simon Theakston, Chairman of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society said: “It is impossible to over-state the contribution Bill has made to the Society, not only as our Honorary Show Director but in the 30 years before. He has been a brilliant Show Director guiding the show through a challenging period not only for the country’s economy, but also for the world of agriculture. The fact that the Great Yorkshire Show is now one of the most important of its kind in the UK is a testimony to his success. He now leaves us with the very challenging task of finding a replacement to take on the mantle!”

In addition to his role as Show Director, Bill has served as a Trustee of the Society, on its Executive Committee and chaired its Grants and Education Committee. He continues to be involved in the family farm near Harrogate – his interest in farming and rural life is very much reflected in the Show’s focus on maintaining its agricultural ethos.

New Theatrical Halloween Spectacular at Groombridge Place and the Enchanted Forest

halloweenGroombridge Place and The Human Zoo Theatre Company have created a unique and interactive theatrical spectacular which will take place every day at Groombridge Place during October half term from Sunday 26 October to Sunday 2 November 2014.

Prepare to be spooked to the spine as you step onto the Ghost Boat Ride down the runaway river, leading you into the Pirate’s Lair which plays host to Captain Timber’s Tavern, serving up a scorching BBQ, tankards of mulled wine and a hearty, homemade pumpkin soup. Dodge the fire-breathing mutineers, as sword-fights break out in front of your very eyes in this immersive performance event. Come and meet the dangerously deranged Pirate Queen for a devilish dance workshop, performed on board her ship to help ward off the evil spirits who threaten to attack and steal the booty.  Follow Little Red Riding Hood as she steps into the Enchanted Forest for a truly theatrical trick-or-treat experience.

See if you can find the magician who will reward you by conjuring up some world class tricks!

An interactive Find-The-Missing-Bones treasure hunt will take you on a toe-curling journey around this magnificent enchanted forest, past the giant spider’s web, into the Tunnel of Terror and onwards to the Abandoned Gypsy Campsite, where the ghosts of a travelling circus have taken up residence. Come, have your palms read at ‘Esmeralda’s Unfortunate Fortunes’, as the spirits of the forgotten gather around the crackling campfire to tell their tantalising tales.

Get ready to be truly immersed this Halloween, as a cast of crooked characters burst from behind trees, chase each other around the rope bridges at Crusoe’s world and create utter mischief throughout this enchanted forest.

Participate in a special ‘Thriller’ dance workshop, culminating in a flash-mob performance in the forest. By day, Groombridge plays host to a whole gang of troublesome tricksters, by night, these spooky suspects will chill you to the bone as only the bravest trick-or-treaters will come out with their baskets full to the brim!

Children’s activities include freaky face-painting and make your very own woodland wand in our teepee craft workshops.

This unique event, which is suitable for the whole family, will turn Groombridge Place and the Enchanted Forest into a spooky wonderland, with fairy tale characters and special effects designed to enthral visitors all day and into the evening.

The restaurant will be serving up delicious meals from their Halloween themed menu.

Children and parents are encouraged to come in fancy dress and prizes will be given to the best dressed children on each day.
