This coming weekend 26/27 September is the Masham Sheep Fair. It’s a great event which I really enjoy attending. My favourite is seeing all the sheep breeds and being able to ask the farmers a few questions. My husband, Simon, loves to photograph both the sheep and the farmers so I have plenty of time to feel the fleece of a few sheep whilst no-one is looking.
In addition to the sheep, there’s a sale of fleeces, demonstrations and sales by the Weavers Spinners & Dyers, an art exhibition, craft fair and small market. There are small shops and a glassblowers studio but if your interest is beer then a visit to Theakston’s Brewery may be more your tipple.
