Castle Howard, one of Yorkshire’s finest historic houses, will this summer host the first ever BBC Countryfile Live to be held in the north.
From 15th-18th August, the county will enjoy a range of fantastic show attractions, the Countryfile main stage will feature BBC Countryfile presenters, including Yorkshire’s very own Anita Rani and John Craven, as well as the Wildlife Zone, the Farmyard Zone and the Dog Lover’s Arena. The event will represent the best of the northern countryside and promises to be a fantastic day out for all the family.
BBC Countryfile Live has been a huge success at Blenheim Palace and now Yorkshire will showcase all that this wonderful county has to offer, including some legendary Yorkshire hospitality. The stunning Castle Howard setting is the perfect location to experience and find out more about Yorkshire’s finest food and drink, brilliant music and world-class exhibitions.
