Plans are well underway for a brand new ‘Ninja Warrior Competition’ for all ages at this year’s show.

We have a seven piece Jazz band booked for the afternoon ‘Dixin Around’ as well as the Armthorpe Elmfield Brass Band. Jade Cotton a stilt walker and fire eater and the ever popular Mr Magic will entertain the younger ones.

We will see the return of the Scarecrows, please display in your garden from 1st August, if you would like to enter the competition register by calling Mandy on 01302 770097 or email 

The committee have reached a decision on the evening event, this will be a free entry and children are welcome to 9pm. Vocalist Vinny Dean will entertain supported by a disco to 11pm. Food will be available from the outside caterers that have agreed to stay on into the evening providing a range of burgers, chips, pizza and Caribbean food.

The Schedule of exhibits for the horticultural and produce show is now available on our web site and will be published in full in the August edition of the Arrow Magazine. NEW for this year 4 x Yorkshire Puddings. Heaviest Tomato. Photographs section ‘A touch of red’, ‘an amusing photograph’, ‘animal portrait’ and ‘Auckley Show’.

Trade stands are still available both inside the craft marquee and on the showground call Dave Coulson to check availability on 01302 770298 or email Still space available on the car boot but booking essential call Di or Malc on 01302 770328 all application forms can be downloaded from our website

Sadly we have lost our main sponsor for 2017 and we thank Tarmac for their previous support during recent years. This will leave a large financial hole in our funds and we would welcome other sponsors for help. Please contact if you could help out with our S.O.S. appeal ‘Save our Show’ We are trying hard to maintain our policy of ‘free entry free parking’ the reality is it gets harder and harder each year to achieve this.

To help fill the void we have resurrected an Auckley Show quiz book available from any committee member for 1, winner gets 20. Or you can join our monthly draw for 1 per month with a chance of winning 100. Results of the May draw will be published in the July edition.

We need support for our Tombola, donations can be left with Julie Turton 5 Rushley Close, Chris Armstrong 18 Ellers Lane Georgina Woodward 23 Ellers Lane
