What is it?
Skipton means ‘sheep town’, so it’s not surprising that the North Yorkshire town holds an annual event celebrating sheep.
This year’s Skipton Sheep Day will be on Sunday 2nd July and will fill the High Street with entertainment, stalls, and demonstrations.
This year’s entertainment will include the Sheep Show, a mini zoo, a fun fair, rare breeds, sheep dancing, stalls, vintage tractors, and dog and duck displays.
The Sheep Show is an educational and fun show with real sheep and shearing demonstrations. There will also be a mini zoo with an array of small animals, as well as a display of rare breeds, and birds of prey.
Live entertainment will come in the form of Skipton Brass Band, Skipton Music Centre’s Junior Concert Band, and dancing from The Great Yorkshire Morris Dancers. There will also be demonstrations of dry stone walling, ropemaking, and spinning and weaving during the day.
As usual, there will be stalls lining the street, selling local food, drink, and crafts.
