KEIGHLEY & DISTRICT
will take place on
SATURDAY 5th SEPTEMBER 2015
Planning is well underway for our 2015 Show. As always, there will be many activities and exhibitions throughout an action packed day. There will be a number of special attractions; a wide variety of Trade Stands and Craft & Local Food stalls and children's rides and amusements.
There will be around 500 classes to enter - ranging from livestock and equestrian, through to handicrafts and produce; fur and feather; plus vegetables and flowers - with lots of prizes and trophies up for grabs.
As well as the return of the hugely popular Ridden Heavy Horses, there are also two new equestrian classes for 2015 - a Sports Horse class, and a class for ex-racehorses which are now being ridden for leisure and pleasure. See our Horse section page for further details.
SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS for 2015
Our main ring attraction this year is the MIGHTY SMITH STRONGMAN SHOW. Adrian Smith is a genuinely “nice guy” and audiences young and old take him to their hearts. He still holds the UK’s Strongest Man title for a record three times, and a credible fifth place in the World’s Strongest Man Competition.
With feats of strength, including tearing up catalogues, bending 6” nails in his teeth, a tug of war with the children and lots more, there is something in his displays for all the family. Along with more serious feats of strength, including a vehicle pull, Mighty Smith will be in the Main Ring from approximately 12.30 pm and again at 4 pm.
Also, why not consider the £1,000 Challenge? If any person (who must not be connected in anyway to the body building circuit/professional weight lifter or associated with the business) accepts the challenge, they will have to complete all the challenges that Adrian performs to the same standard to have a chance of winning the prize!
The City of Bradford Pipe Band will also be entertaining the crowds throughout the day, and we also see the return of the popular Terrier Racing, Vintage Tractors, and Decorated Shire Horses.

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!
