KEIGHLEY & DISTRICT
took place on
SATURDAY 5th SEPTEMBER 2015
Show day turned out to be bright, sunny and warm! Crowds flocked to the show ground and many stayed into the late afternoon enjoying the entertainments whilst basking in our "Indian Summer".
It was an action packed day with lots to see and do. The "Mighty Smith" entertained adults and children alike, many of whom had chance to compete against him in the ring! There was a wide variety of Trade Stands and Craft & Local Food stalls, together with children's rides and amusements.
The Horticulture section had a bumper day with record entries, including a large children's section, and more rabbits and cattle turned up than were expected. Wonderful displays from the Airedale Beekeepers and Steeton Flower Club added extra colour and focus in the Handicraft marquee. The Ridden Heavy Horses, a Decorated Shire Horse, and Vintage Tractors all took their turn to parade in the Main Ring.

SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS for 2015
Our main ring attraction this year was 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 was something in his displays for all the family.
The City of Bradford Pipe Band also be entertained the crowds throughout the day, and we also saw the return of the popular Terrier Racing, Vintage Tractors, and Heavy 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!
