Competition categories include the following (with 172 individual classes!): fruit & vegetables, flowers, handicrafts, art, dairy produce, floral art and photography.
One of the highlights of the show is the Castleton Show Run, a road race of approximately 10k or 6 miles, which starts and finishes at the Castleton Show Field. The race is organised by members of North York Moors AC. The race route traverses minor roads in a circular manner via Dibble Bridge, the ford at Hob Hole and the village of Westerdale.
The show field opens 12 noon and the tents open at 1pm. Admission £2.50 adults (including car park), £1 OAP, £1 children.
What appeals to me most about the show is that I have seen no mention of a Labrador category so those crazy puppies won’t spend from now until 12 Sep practicing their tail wagging and cute walk!
