200 Years of Farm to Plate, June 30th

Events in the peak district june 2019

To celebrate 200 years of the Bakewell Agricultural & Horticultural Society, there will be a one-off event at the Bakewell Showground in place of the regular Bakewell Show. The show will have the theme ‘Farm to Plate’, highlighting the journey that food takes to get onto our plates.

At the show, there will be livestock to see and workshops to take part in. These will show what goes into making everyday products such as cheese, honey and herbs. Horse-drawn harvesting demonstrations will also take place to show spectators exactly how crops would have been processed in the olden days.

For little ones, there are many fun games and activities to look forward to, like welly wanging and hay bale carting. And for the motor enthusiasts, there will even be a display of vintage tractors and farm machinery. This is a very special event, indeed!
