Keighley and District Agricultural Show approaches.

This September brings with it the Keighley and District Agricultural Show, where visitors will be able to enjoy horticulture, farming and animal displays.

Now in its 51st year, the event takes place on September 6th at the Marley Stadium and is the largest occasion of its kind in the West Yorkshire region.

Visitors can expect to see tug-of-war contests as well as competitions and displays featuring tractors, handicrafts, honey, ferrets, flowers, cattle, horses, poultry, pygmy goats, pigeons, rabbits and sheep as well as the usual trade stalls.

With advanced tickets costing only £5 for adults (£6 on the day) and £3 for concessions, the event is shaping up to be very popular indeed.

Family tickets cost just £12 and a falcon display and the Bradford Pipe Band are likely to keep kids entertained, while gardeners will enjoy getting advice from farmers and other gardeners.

Really keen gardeners can enter the horticulture competition, with details and application forms being available on the shows website.
