IT’S time to start gearing up for the biggest show in town!
The deadline is fast approaching for applications for field stalls for Mirfield Show, which takes place on August 20.
The family agricultural show attracts around 12,000 visitors and stall applications are welcome from businesses, people and charities not just locally, but from literally anywhere.
The organisers pride their event on offering a wide variety of stalls selling everything from locally-produced bread and cheese to rugs made from New Zealand wool and a range of arts and crafts.
Applications are open until March 1 by downloading a form from www.mirfieldshow.com. Sponsorship packages for the biggest event on Mirfield’s calendar are still available.
A show spokesman said: “It’s a great way to support a community event and to promote your business to thousands of families.
“As a gold sponsor you would receive your branding on all pre-show materials including the website, programme and posters displayed around Mirfield and the surrounding areas.
“On show day your branding would be displayed prominently throughout the showground and main ring and you are guaranteed a stall in the showground so you can showcase your products and greet visitors.”
Silver sponsors receive a half-page advert in the show programme as well as branding on an attraction at the show, plus free tickets.
Bronze sponsors promote an attraction on show day with branding and get an acknowledgement in the programme.
Packages start from £150.
The show organisers have thanked early backers including gold sponsor Riva Homes, silver sponsors Nest Photography, Floorings 4 U, Squared Blue Containers, Syngenta, and James Walker Properties, and bronze sponsors Grace Landscapes, Ossett Brewery, Tax Assist, Charlotte’s Ice-cream, Wilcock & Co and Mirfield Community Centre.
Karen Bullivant, who chairs the committee, said: “We would like to thank our confirmed sponsors for 2017 and everyone who has already applied for a field stall.
“Mirfield Show is a not-for-profit organisation which is run entirely by volunteers. Without the generous support of sponsors, stall holders and the thousands of families who attend the show each year we would not be able to hold the show which everyone in Mirfield is proud of.”
