On the field will be the band-wagon style stage, where local talent will entertain the crowds.

Admission prices this year will be £3 for adults, £1 for under 16s and free for under-fives. Discounted tickets will be available in advance of the event from the Promotional Caravan in the Town Centre and at Tesco until Friday, June 24 or from other participating stores and organisations.

Brighouse Gala Chairman, Peter Charles, said: "Missing this year will be two stalwart members of the Gala Committee who passed away last year. Peter Edwards and David Wozencroft, both of whom were long standing members. Peter served as Chairman and Ground Chairman for over 40 years and his contribution over that period was immense. David served on the Ground committee and latterly as Arena Announcer. They will be sadly missed.

"The organisers are determined that the 2022 Gala will rate with any of the previous 54 events providing the people of Brighouse and District with the best show in town!"
