Yorkshire Show: How agricultural shows survive the times

9 July 2013 Last updated at 09:21 BST

Agricultural shows were once the highlight of the farming diary but in the last few years, a number of high profile events - including The Royal Show - have been forced to close.

One fixture that is still going strong after more than a century is the Great Yorkshire Show.

More than 130,000 visitors are expected to make their way to Harrogate to see it.
