What's On Around Masham

You’ll be delighted by what’s on around Masham.

A vibrant arts scene means there is always an exhibition coming up or a creative workshop offering you the chance to get crafty. 

Around Masham the surrounding villages also host a range of live music, dramatic events and informative talks in community venues that welcome visitors and locals alike.

Get up a head of steam for the July weekend when the sound of whistles and heavy rolling stock heralds the annual Steam Engine and Fair Organ Rally rolling into town.

Attracting passionate enthusiasts from far and wide, this is a wonderful celebration of industrial heritage.

It’s a must for veteran vehicle fans, but there’s plenty to keep all the family happy with arena events and displays, stalls selling locally produced crafts and food goodies and even a fairground!

The area is firmly bound up in the farming tradition.

The annual and ancient Masham Sheep Fair continues to delight thousands of visitors over the last weekend of September.

They flock to enjoy its famous celebration of farming traditions as well as the serious business of sheep and wool production!

In days gone by over 70,000 sheep were regularly traded at the event.

And if the silver screen is your thing – there’s no need to travel to the city to see your favourite films – the big screen comes to you!

A thriving film community together with Cinenorth bring regular high quality screenings of top films to town – so sit back with your popcorn and enjoy!

The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty office organise a number of events all year round offering you the chance to get involved in the preservation of the surrounding landscape.

Learn about the history of various industries over the years and get closer to the flora and fauna that thrives in and around this idyllic little town.

And with two local breweries you can be sure all local events will be well supplied with ale and Yorkshire Dales cheer, whatever the time of year.
