There’s the chance to enjoy wet ‘n’ wild fun on the Wild River Rapids, and swashbuckling adventures aboard speedy Skull Rock and the tummy-tickling Flying Cutlass.

2019 Tockwith Show Bonfire and Firework Display

05 November 2019 – CANCELLED
Cattal Moor Lane, Tockwith, YO26 7QH

After an inspection on Saturday the 2nd of November and with the threat of more rain to come it has been decided (regrettably) to cancel this year’s bonfire and firework display. The main concern was in getting people off the carpark in such wet conditions and in the dark. It was felt that there was too much risk to people and vehicles if cars were needed to be towed off after becoming bogged down, which given the conditions was very likely. Damage to the farmers field was also a concern.
