ORGANISERS are gearing up for the ‘best Mirfield Show yet’ later this year.
The annual show is returning to Mirfield Showground on Sunday August 18 – and there’ll be new attractions and competitions as well as old favourites to make this year bigger and better than ever.
Over 10,000 visitors descend on the Huddersfield Road site each year to enjoy the host of agricultural and animal-based attractions, as well as the food, trade and craft stalls, competitions and performances from local artists and groups.
Advance tickets (£4) are available online until Wednesday August 14 and under-16s go free.
Chairman Jonathan Evans said: “Mirfield Show is a great family day out and provides the opportunity to show the wide range of talents and skills we have in Mirfield and Yorkshire.
“From the bands and musicians that will be performing to the local designers and artists in the Made in Yorkshire craft tents, and all the excellent competition entries in the baking, gardening and handicraft classes.
“With so much variety I encourage everyone to take a look at our website and see if there is a competition or class that fits for you.”
The show is always looking for sponsors, and bronze sponsorship packages start from just £150. Volunteers are also needed, and anyone wanting to help should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
