2020 dates – Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th October 2020

Celebrating the very best of the countryside, this two-day event is mostly undercover so you’ll have fun whatever the weather. Countryside Live is proud to be one of the best fatstock shows in the UK, with some of the finest cattle and sheep in the country competing. Once you have your ticket to the event all activities are FREE, and there is plenty to do for children of all ages.

Julia Bradbury will front this year’s Countryside Live for the first time. Best known for presenting Countryfile on the BBC and Britain’s Best Walks and Australia with Julia Bradbury on ITV, Julia is renowned for being genuinely passionate about the countryside and outdoor pursuits.

Julian and Peter who star in Channel 5’s The Yorkshire Vet, will also appear on the Main Stage as well as signing and selling their new books in the Tipsy Heifer Pub. Peter will appear on Saturday 19 October with his newly released book “My Yorkshire Great and Small”, a heart-warming love letter to the places, people and animals of Yorkshire. Julian will be a special guest on Sunday 20 October with his books including the latest: “On Call with a Yorkshire Vet” a diary-style book, full of short stories and anecdotes, published by Great Northern Books.
