Egton Bridge Gooseberry Show

The oldest surviving gooseberry show in the country takes place each August at Egton Bridge, near Whitby. World Record breaking gooseberries are shown at this event – the heaviest berries are the winners with weights of up to 62g. There are classes for different varieties of berry (red, yellow, green and white) and the fruit is carefully weighed on special scales. While many of the competitors are local, people travel from all over the country to take part.
