Sponsorship packages still available
If you want to raise your profile even higher on show day and during the run-up to the show there is still time to get involved and sponsor the 2017 show. It’s a great way to support a community event and to promote your business to thousands of families.
As a Gold Sponsor you would receive your branding on all pre-show materials including the website, programme and posters displayed around Mirfield and the surrounding areas. On show day you branding would be displayed prominently throughout the showground and main ring and you are guaranteed a stall in the showground so you can showcase your products and greet visitors.
Silver sponsors receive a half page advert in the very popular Show Programme as well as your branding on the attraction you sponsor at the show. You will also receive free tickets to the show.
As a Bronze sponsor you will sponsor an attraction on show day. Your branding will be displayed prominently next to the attraction for everyone to see. You will also receive at Thank You acknowledgement in the programme.
Sponsorship starts from just £150 offering excellent value for money. Sponsorship packages are sold on a first come first served basis and they are already booking up fast.

Karen Bullivant, chairperson comments; “We would like to thank our confirmed sponsors for 2017 and everyone who has already applied for a field stall. Mirfield Show is a not-for-profit an organisation which is run entirely by volunteers. Without the generous support of sponsors, stall holders and the thousands of families who attend the show each year we would not be able to put hold the show which everyone in Mirfield is proud of.”
First held in 1945, the Mirfield Show gained initial success before numbers declined & the show stalled during the 1980s. A prosperous revival in 1995 brought new life to the show & it now attracts over 12,000 visitors each year. Adult tickets for the 2016 show stand at £3.50 in advance or £5.00 at the gate.
