The Halifax Agricultural Show grows in success every year. The next show is on Saturday 8th August 2015, if you'd like to help out, just get in touch with us. Whatever your skills, we have a role for you!
The Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team, better known as The White Helmets, will be our main attraction this year in the main ring.
Recognised by many as the best in the world the Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team has been performing for over 80 years.
Giving their traditional, thrilling and disciplined arena displays on British Millennium Triumph 750cc motorcycles they clearly show all the qualities of teamwork, courage, trust, strength and agility that are needed in the modern Army.
In their immaculate uniforms, the Team performs spectacular feats of balance, death defying crossover rides and outstanding acrobatics.
This record-holding team has existed as a recognised organisation since the first public displays of joint precision horsemanship and motorcycle riding were given by instructors and students from the Signal Training Centre in Yorkshire in 1927.
We're always looking for volunteers to help with the show. We have opportunities for people with all kinds of skills: Management, administration, Marketing & PR, Human resources as well as good old physical grafters. It would be great if you want to help organise the show, but even if you can only afford a little time to help set up the show or to help on the day, we'd love to hear from you.
Trade stand plots are sold in fixed size units of 4m frontage by 6m depth (24sqm). Units cost £100 with discounts for multiple units.

We are sorry to announce the cancellation of the horse sections at the 2015 Show on the 8 August.
Cases of Equine Strangles have been notified in the area. The disease is readily transmitted and in the worst cases can endanger the life of any infected horses. The Management Committee has therefore decided, with regret, to cancel all light horse, heavy horse and donkey events. None of the other small animal or livestock classes are affected by this decision and the rest of the Show will continue as planned.
We fully expect the horse and donkey classes will return in 2016.
