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 1st July and will fill the High Street with entertainment, stalls, and demonstrations.
This year’s entertainment will include the Sheep Show, a mini zoo, Nidderdale Llamas, sheep dancing, street theatre, stalls, and dog and duck displays.
The Sheep Show is an educational and fun show with real sheep and shearing demonstrations. The show also features different breeds of sheep and a spot of sheep dancing!
There will also be vintage tractors, dry stone walling, spinning and weaving demonstrations, a farmers market, birds of prey and wood carving at the event.
This year, there will be a day of events at the town hall, including craft activities, a Vintage, Collectables and Memorabilia Fair, an art installation and live music.
As usual, there will be stalls lining the street, selling local food, drinks, and crafts.
