Great Yorkshire Show - Eggucation

Great Yorkshire Show

Eggucation is delighted to be back at Great Yorkshire Show – as part of the Discovery Zone – free educational activities based on the countryside and farming! 

To ensure our Great Yorkshire Show workshops are COVID-19 safe we have made a few changes for your visit;

🐣 We cannot host our workshops ‘outside’ as the incubators and the chicks might need shelter from the British summer! So we have our own marquee – we will upload the Great Yorkshire Show map as soon as we can so you can find us! 

🐣 Hand Sanitiser will be available at the entrance. 

🐣 Sadly there will be no chick handling at the event – we know you love this part but don’t worry there will still be lots of beautiful rare breed chicks, of varying ages, for you to look at and learn about.

🐣 Timed workshops with limited numbers of people in the marquee. School group can book these workshops, the rest of the times will be on a notice board outside the tent, and you can queue at busy times. 

🐣 Easy to access QR codes for downloading much of the information on our hatching programmes and beautiful rare breeds, as well as Great Yorkshire Show 

Below are just SOME of the activities we are proving at Great Yorkshire Show……
