Tickets are on sale now for the hugely popular Springtime Live on Saturday April 1, which will celebrate the best of food, farming and countryside.

Families can get up close to farm animals including rabbits, goats and sheep thanks to Ian's Mobile Farm which is based in Aberford near Leeds. There’s also Peppa Pig as well as Peter Rabbit who will be making his debut and both will be on stage throughout the day. Diggerland will also be at Springtime Live for the first time.

All activities are FREE once inside the event where there will also be alpacas, reptiles, Ferretworld's Roadshow, Rare Breeds Survival Trust and forest crafts.

Ripon Farm Services have donated mini tractors which youngsters can ride around an indoor circuit, there will also be an outdoor bike track and a climbing wall.

Due to the popularity of Springtime Live, entry is by advance ticket only and there are a limited number on sale. Last year’s event was a sell-out.
Charles Mills, Show Director, said: “This will be our eighth Springtime Live and it gets more and more popular every year. Make sure you book your tickets now to ensure entry and once inside, everything is free! We look forward to seeing you!”

Springtime Live will be at the Great Yorkshire Showground, in Harrogate, on Saturday April 1, from 9am to 4:30pm. Tickets cost £12 for adults and £7 for children or a family ticket (2 adults and 3 children) for £33. Under 3s are free. These are on sale at or sold in Fodder (subject to availability).

Springtime Live raises funds for the Yorkshire Agricultural Society to help support farming and the countryside.
