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 2019 show, from Tuesday 9th July to Thursday 11th July, will build on the success of previous years and the three days 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.
Each day there may be an opportunity to have a go at blacksmithing during with a taster session at the show. Advance bookings required to take part in the taster sessions.
If you would like to enter work into the exhibition, we welcome entries from both professional smiths as well as budding amateur blacksmiths. 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.
