Following a consultation with members, visitors, livestock and trade exhibitors, the society announced the additional day is to be made permanent.

Nigel Pulling, Chief Executive of The Yorkshire Agricultural Society, said previously: "The pandemic forced us to change the way we did things at the show and there was not one section of the Great Yorkshire Show that was unchanged.

"This pressed a reset button on our whole operations and some of these changes were so successful, they are here to stay. Spreading the event over four days was met with an overwhelmingly positive response from our exhibitors, visitors and staff."

In previous years, the popular agricultural event took place over three days, but in 2021 organisers were forced to make a raft of changes due to Covid-19 regulations.
