Masham boasts one of the largest and finest market squares in England, famous for its sheep sales where in the past as many as 70,000 sheep were sold each year.  UPDATE:  The organisers of the Masham Sheep Fair have reluctantly decided to cancel the 2020 event in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.  They would like to encourage regular visitors to donate to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in its absence, for whom they usually raise several thousand pounds. The popular Masham Sheep Fair commemorates these times, raising much money for Yorkshire charities, and filling the town with sheepy fun and entertainment.There is an action packed programme for Saturday and Sunday including Sheep Show, Sheep Racing, Craft Market, Fleece Stalls, Wood Competition, Sheepdog Demonstrations, music, dancing, entertainment and much more. All proceeds to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Read more
