Family fun in store at Hartington Wakes

THERE will be plenty of fun for all the family at this weekend’s Hartington Wakes Sports and Show.

The annual event, now in its 115th year, takes place on Sunday at Pikehall Racetrack, featuring a range of displays, activities, stands and attractions.

There will be harness racing with licensed bookmakers, showjumping, puissance, gallops and gymkhana, plus a full open beef and dairy cattle show with a Texal sheep section and including a Grand Parade.

The show will also feature vintage tractors and stationary engines, children’s attractions and displays of hounds.

Another major attraction is the prestigious ‘Pride of the Peaks’ event for lurchers, terriers and fun dogs, which along with the lurcher and terrier racing always attracts huge crowds.

A bar and refreshments will be available. Admission is £7 for adults and free for under-16s.
