SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS 2016
Our main ring attraction will be
DANGEROUS STEVE - a thrilling Outdoor, Gala and Street Theatre Entertainment! Steve is one of the most experienced outdoor attractions on the circuit. He started presenting his motorbike stunt show age six! It’s non-stop, thrill-a-minute with Dangerous Steve’s Fire and Chainsaw juggling, Giant Unicycle, Ladder Balancing and Blindfold Motorcycle riding in an hilarious and dynamic act full of sensational stunts.
NRGym will be in attendance to hold a day of STRONGMAN EVENTS open to teams and members of the public alike. The events will be traditional strongman competitions designed to test participants’ strength and brawn, and will include Tyre Flipping, Farmers Carry, Tug-of-War, Bale Races, and Truck Pulling. There will also be a team event taking place so if you and your friends fancy battling it out with Keighley's strongest then get ready!
Also for this year, we will have the famous SHEEP ROAD SHOW. Set on its own special unit, you will welcome 4 different breeds onto the stage to music and there will be a shearing demonstration. It’s a fun and educational look at sheep, wool and an opportunity to “Let’s talk farming”.

We would like to thank all sponsors, members, exhibitors, and other supporters for their continued help and support, as without their contribution, we would not have a Show to present for the public’s enjoyment. Also a big thank you to all those who give up their time throughout the year to put together all the arrangements for the Show, and to those who spend a week setting up the show field and clearing up afterwards!
