KEIGHLEY & DISTRICT AGRICULTURAL SHOW
will take place on
SATURDAY 2nd SEPTEMBER 2017
Our 2016 Show was set to be bigger and better than ever before. After lovely weather in the week before the Show, it was a great disappointment that the day itself saw steady rain for the majority of the time.
However, that did not stop large crowds enjoying everything that was on offer, including looking around the large indoor marquees to take a break from the elements outside!
All exhibitions and competitions went ahead as planned, apart from the Ferrets who did not like the idea of racing on wet grass! Even the City of Bradford Pipe Band kept the crowds well entertained - we didn't see their kilts though as they were well covered with full length raincoats!
If you have a browse through our 2016 pictures, you will see that "Yorkshire folk" are made of hardy stuff and were not going to be beaten by the weather!
Our 2016 main ring attraction was
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.
Also for 2016 we had the famous SHEEP ROAD SHOW. Set on its own special unit, it was great fun and an educational look at sheep and their wool.
We also saw the return of some old favourites including the City of Bradford Pipe Band, Terrier Racing, Vintage Tractors, Honey & Wax display, 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!
