horbury-show-2013The Horbury Show has taken place in Carr Lodge Park for over 30 years. It is organised on the last Sunday in June each year by Rotary Club of Horbury & Ossett Phoenix. The aim is to provide an entertaining, enjoyable and informative show while at the same time raising money for charities mostly local.

Several thousand people visit the show, seeing and experiencing a wide range of attractions, performers and activities; with an emphasis on a traditional show in the town. Innovations like Faceless Performing Arts Space to Create ( free workshops for children) and The Heron will draw your attention while we have a traditional Punch & Judy show; by a master of his trade. At times during the day a Battle of Britain will be overhead while The Horbury Show Strongman competition takes place and Majorettes, Cheerleaders and Sport Acrobatic teams perform in the main ring. There will be a local Brass Band, dry stone wallers, wood turners and Mining Museum Ponies as well as the providers of over 70 stalls and attractions.

Vehicles old and new will be there; classic cars, lorries and motorcycles along with the latest models from established car dealers. The Owls from Owls of Athena will be present with their falconers and there will be larger fun dog show run by the Wakefield Dog Training Club.

There is also a real ale bar in the marquee and several catering units on site as well as a number of fairground attractions and rides.
