The Horbury Show - Sunday 29th June 2014
11 am to 4.30 pm
Welcome to your Show! The Horbury Show is always on the last Sunday in June. For over 30 years the Show has been a major event in the Wakefield District calendar. 2014 will be the 18th year in which the Rotary Club of Horbury & Ossett Phoenix have organised the Show at Carr Lodge Park in the centre of Horbury.
The Show regularly attracts several thousand people from Wakefield, Horbury, Ossett, Netherton and surrounding districts. We offer free entrance to all visitors (although we do ask for donations for parking) and all the Rotary Club profits go to local charitable causes. Phoenix Rotary Club is not a commercial organisation, we don't have funds of our own and therefore could not run the Show without the help and financial assistance of our sponsors and supporters – but most importantly the public who turn up on the day.
Plans for the 2014 show are almost complete. Have a look at our Attractions Page which will include:
• A new Birds of Prey static and flying displays
• Arts workshops for children and young adults by Faceless Community Arts
• A flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight - weather permitting!
In addition to our Food Court areas, 2014 will, for the third year, have a Real Ale bar in the Marquee run by the Cricketers Arms of Horbury.
The 2014 Show, like all the others, can’t be put on without financial assistance and we are very grateful once again to our Main Show sponsor Burrows-Mazda-Wakefield (233 Bridge Road, Horbury Bridge see their website). Long established sponsors Richard Kendall, Estate Agent - the leading sales and letting agent in the Wakefield area (who have prominent offices in Horbury - and in Ossett) again help us, joined this year by Kingston Unity Friendly Society and the other sponsors and supporters who are listed on this web page.
We continue to receive strong support from our local Councillors, as well as from members of StreetScene Services and the Neighbourhood Improvement Fund at Wakefield MDC – please see the Fund's WMDC webpage for details of how they may be able to help your organisation. The Trustees of Horbury Common Lands Trust have been generous in their support and in addition the owners of businesses based in Horbury, Ossett and outside the area also support the Horbury Show. All of their respective contributions are invaluable to us - so please follow the links to their websites.
