This year’s Mirfield Show will feature a strongest man competition, a gun dog demonstration and horse stunt team Les Amis Donno.
Fifty competitors from across the UK will take part in Mirfield Show’s first strongest man competition. They will demonstrate beer keg toss and dead lift, quad bike pressing and car rolling. The highlight of the contest will be a
record breaking attempt to 4pm in the main arena. The competition will start at 10am.
Kirkbourn Gun Dogs will be demonstrating the art of gun dog training and Darren Kirk will be explaining why his are trained to such a high standard.
Les Amis Donno will perform their to rip-roaring ‘Cactus Djake’ western shows with man, horse and dog all working together.
Mirfield Show’s theme this year is transport, which will be embraced in the competitions marquee, where there will be go kart building with a prize of £50 and a free MOT.
As always the event will have a live music stage, a fun dog show, a Made in Yorkshire Marquee and many more attractions.
Jonathan Evans, Show Chairman says “We pride ourselves in providing an action packed family day out at a very affordable price, Only adults have to pay to attend the show, accompanied children under 16 have free entry. And at £4 for an advance ticket, I call that very good value.
“The show would be nothing without our hard-working volunteers. The committee work throughout the year to bring the show together on the special day. To keep our 10,000-plus visitors happy on show day, we are always on the look-out for volunteers to come along help out over show weekend. If you fancy yourself a fun ‘meeter and greeter’ or are handy at putting up a gazebo, get in touch as we may have just the position for you. For more details, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Advanced tickets are available up to Wednesday, August 14 from www.mirfieldshow.com and some local shops in Mirfield – Ramsden’s, Millie and Bertie’s, Rhubarb and Ginger and Perfections on Old Bank Road.
Tickets on the day at the showground will be £6.
