We hope you’re enjoying a bright and sunny Spring so far. What glorious weather we’ve been blessed with this year and what better way to enjoy it than spend the day at some of Yorkshire’s finest events, fayres and various local attractions.
We’ve compiled a list of some upcoming events and activities we think you may enjoy.

This Saturday 18th April sees Yorkshire Warrior come to Harrogate. Commencing at the Great Yorkshire Show ground this year, this is a huge event including live music and entertainment.
There’s bigger walls, bigger crawls, water slides, half a mile underground, more mud, more ice and more FUN!
They’ve also got a new event – The Yorkshire Warrior half, a jam packed 5 mile course, which is supposed to be a bit kinder and not as tough. We’re not so sure!
We’ve a couple of friends competing, so wish all of them the best of luck along with anyone else taking part!

As you may or may not know we attended the Autumn flower show here last year and it was a wonderful event. We saw so many beautiful flowers on display along with the infamous giant vegetables!
There was music and food and some lovely craft stalls where we purchased many a Christmas present. Really looking forward to this year’s.

Feeling crafty? There are creative craft classes available throughout April and May with our friends at Our Handmade Collective;
