On behalf of the Honley Show Committee, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2016 Honley Show. We’re delighted to see both those who support us regularly and extend a special welcome to those who may be visiting us for the first time. We pray for fine weather so that the whole family can enjoy the day out on our beautiful site with great views in Farnley Tyas.This year our nominated charity is Macmillan Cancer Support. We all know someone who has been helped by Macmillan and we are delighted to be supporting them and their great work this year.

Our Show Committee also continues to support a number of other community projects, with a focus on local Junior Schools which includes Honley I&N, Brockholes I&J, Farnley Tyas I&J and Nortonthorpe Hall.

We’re also really pleased to be working with two energetic groups of young people this year. The local Young Farmers group and students from Askham Bryan College will be helping us both before the show and on the day itself. Keep an eye out for them on the showfield

To sustain our one day agricultural show, which focuses on core traditions of agricultural life, we are dependent on our sponsors, for which we are very grateful. They help us in many ways and are too numerous to mention here but you can see them all acknowledged in our show programme; on our website and around the showfield.

Finally a big thank you to all the volunteers who have worked hard for the last year to put together the Show.
