This year’s Mirfield Show promises to be the best yet with new attractions and competitions as well as old favourites. Now in its 22nd year, the 2017 Mirfield Show will be taking place at the Mirfield Show Ground on Sunday 20th August.
With adult advance tickets available for only £3.50 (£5 on the day) & under 16s admission remaining free, this year’s show is bound to attract as many visitors as previous year; If not more. Always a great day out for all the family, the show continues to grow in popularity and last year attracted over 10,000 visitors from across Yorkshire. Advance tickets are now available to buy online through the Mirfield Show website.
Karen Bullivant, show chairperson, said: “Mirfield Show is a great family day out and provides the opportunity to show the wide range of talents and skills we have in Mirfield and Yorkshire. From the bands and musicians that will be performing, to the local designers and artists in the Made in Yorkshire craft tent, and all the excellent competition entries in the baking, gardening and handicraft classes. With so much variety, I encourage everyone to take a look at our website and see if there is a competition or class that fits for you.”
Mirfield Show can only offer the spectacular day out thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. It’s never too late for your company or organisation to get involved with Bronze sponsorship packages starting from just £150.

Head of Competitions, Louise Hardy says: “This year’s show hopes to attract more entrants than ever before. The competitions tent is always a popular spot for any visitor to the show – It’s a great place for gardeners in the local community to showcase their talents proudly. We encourage all ages to get involved. We have introduced some funky new classes to embrace this year’s theme.”
