Save The Date! Yorkshire Day 2013 At Wentbridge House

Preparations have commenced at Wentbridge House as the hotel gets ready to welcome over 2000 people to celebrate Yorkshire Day on 1st August 2013.

Wentbridge House in Pontefract will welcome visitors from far and wide to celebrate all things Yorkshire at the annual free show which will feature live music, local trade stalls and the region's top chefs showcasing the very best local produce, all in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

Now in its third year, the event has become a benchmark event in the Yorkshire calander and this year Wentbridge House hope to raise a record amount for their chosen charities, exeeding the £5000 that was raised in 2012.

Last year's event saw everything from falconry demonstrations to flat cap flinging and a whole host of activities for all of the family. The show is also a mecca for food lovers who flock to Wentbridge House to sample the local cheeses, hog roasts and Yorkshire ales.

Wentbridge House also create a special 'Yorkshire Day' menu and serve lunch and dinner in the Brasserie as well as afternoon tea in the restaurant throughout the day.

With just over 3 months to go until Yorkshire day 2013, staff at the 4 star hotel are planning a whole host of new stalls and demonstrations to entertain the crowds.

Wentbridge House Manager and organizer of the event, Catherine Harrild said:

"We work very hard to put on a great show for 'Yorkshire Day' and I'm extremely proud of our achievements over the past few years."

"It's so rewarding to see all the hard work and planning come together on the day itself. Feedback from suppliers and visitors has been unbelievably positive year on year and we're sure Yorkshire Day at Wentbridge 2013 will be the biggest and best yet!"
