The Wrought Ironwork competitions will be back in 2021 on 13th to 15th July

Sponsored by The Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths

As part of the attractions for the Great Yorkshire Show, we aim to promote the blacksmithing trade and public awareness in this ancient craft, by hosting an interactive, hands on experience for visitors.

The 2021 show will will be packed full of events, not least in the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths marquee. There will be an exhibition of traditional and contemporary blacksmithing from several smiths, plus demonstrations in the craft taking place throughout the show.

In previous years, we have welcomed exhibition entries from both professional smiths as well as budding amateur blacksmiths. Until the 2021 COVID steps are finalised, we will continue to adapt the plans for this year’s show. Please get in touch to find out more. We are also looking for professional blacksmiths to come and spend time demonstrating on the forge with our resident team. Details of the competition categories will be released on this site in spring.
