Halifax Agricultural Show: 20 fabulous pictures showing crowds enjoying the iconic event on Savile Park

Visitors had a baa-rilliant time as the Halifax Agricultural Show returned for the first time since 2019.

The sun shone down on the event by the Halifax Agricultural Society, which saw crowds of people enjoy a jam-packed schedule in the main ring as well as see a whole host of animals at Savile Park.

General Secretary Mandy Bush said: “The show this year was an outstanding success with record gate numbers of over 12,000 visitors across the day.

"Build up week was blisteringly hot on the Showground but we have a fabulous team of Committee and helpers who come together every year to put the show together.

“We did have to modify some of the main ring attractions due to the heat as the safety of the animals is paramount and always comes first.

“We had a very moving tribute in the Main Ring where all of the Committee went in to pay our respects to our late Chairman Jeff Gill who passed away last year unexpectedly.

"The Accrington Pipe Band played his favourite piece, Highland Cathedral which was very moving for us all, particularly his widow Dianne Gill. The 2022 show was held in memory of Jeff.

"Traders reported great sales and we have had brilliant feedback from the public whose comments were, what a well organised and well run show it was this year.

"A great result all round and now on to planning 2023 show!”

Here are some pictures from this year’s event – can you spot anyone you know?
