Weeton and District Agricultural and Horticultural Society, better known as Weeton Show, was established immediately after World War II and here is an extract from an early Membership Card:
“OBJECTS OF THE SOCIETY. To encourage the efficient cultivation of the soil by farmers, gardeners and all flower lovers; to organize an annual competition and the award of prizes for the exhibition of farm crops, garden flowers, vegetables, cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, domestic crafts, home pets, etc. ; and to hold an annual Show of Exhibits for providing a social event for all interested residents and visitors." Since this illustrious start when the Earl of Harewood, two knights and most of the local gentry were Vice Presidents, Weeton Show has grown to become the best and most inclusive local community event. It has taken place every year since 1945 except in 2001, when the Foot & Mouth epidemic caused cancellation of the show. Originally the show took place in Huby Institute and the adjoining land. The Institute, erected in 1920, was a wooden ex World War I army hut which was replaced by Almscliffe Hall in 1987?
“Guessing weight of Live Lamb”, “Guessing weight of Live Pig” and “Best kept Cottage Garden” are classes listed in the 1949 schedule which have disappeared, but apart from these, it is amazing how closely the original classes and traditions of the show have been followed. "Since 1945 Weeton Show Committee has been and will continue to be, dedicated to maintaining the great traditions of a genuine English village show."
