Celebrate the 165th Great Yorkshire Show at the Theakston Great Yorkshire Inn!

Summer in North Yorkshire means one thing: The Great Yorkshire Show! From July 9th to 12th, the serene town of Harrogate will come alive in celebration of the 165th Great Yorkshire Show.

The annual Great Yorkshire Show is the showcase activity of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, an institution founded in 1847 to support agricultural production and industry in Yorkshire. Widely considered to be the best agricultural show in the country, nowadays the Great Yorkshire Show is not only a showcase of the finest examples of farm stock and agricultural excellence but also local culinary delights, artisan crafts and Yorkshire’s rich agricultural heritage. With a huge variety of attractions including Ferris wheels, marching bands, working dogs, country stores and a great pub, there is a reason this event has been a staple in Yorkshire’s calendar since 1838. Whether you're a farming enthusiast or simply looking for the perfect family day out, the Great Yorkshire Show promises something for everyone.

The ‘pub on the show ground’ has always been a central meeting place for visitors to enjoy a drink during the day. After many years, we are delighted to announce that this year the Society has appointed Theakston to return as the host of the main Show bar – The Great Yorkshire Inn.

The Great Yorkshire Inn is the perfect place to take a break from the bustling activities, catch up with friends and family and soak up the atmosphere with a pint of one of our finest ales. Join us in the main bar marquee where you can enjoy a selection of our Theakston classics, including some old favourites such as Old Peculier and Best Bitter, alongside some new best-selling products. Aside from our famous beers, we will also be serving up musical entertainment, offering exclusive insight and hosting live demonstrations, including a coopering demonstration for our very own Cooper. 

Next door to the Great Yorkshire Inn you will find our stand with a wide variety of Theakston merchandise, bottled products and other souvenirs. It’s a great opportunity to pick out the perfect gift or treat yourself to a case of your favourite beer.  

Our Company chairman, Simon Theakston, has himself very strong links to the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, spanning over 43 years he has served as a Steward, Council and Trustee Board member followed by eight years as Chairman and last year, as President. He said on the news of the company appointment as Bar hosts, “This is a culmination of many years’ involvement with the Great Yorkshire Show. Our Theakston family have been sourcing our brewing ingredients from Yorkshire farmers for nearly 200 years, so to be appointed as the host of the main bar is a great honour and we look forward to providing the best of Yorkshire’s beer to the many visitors coming to the Show.”
