From ponies, rabbits and meerkats to dancers, cheerleaders and acrobats – this year’s Mirfield Show has it all.
International performers Above and Beyond will thrill crowds on Sunday August 18 with a show featuring flying trapeze, ropes, silks, hoops, and acrobatics at up to 35 feet in the air.
The troupe is one of two headline acts set to perform in the main arena in Mirfield Showground this year.
They will be joined by agricultural entertainer Bob Hogg whose sheep will race around a course of colourful jumps in the Lamb National.
During a second display, Mr Hogg will invite children into the arena itself as dogs guide ducks around an obstacle course.
Show chairwoman Karen Bullivant said: “Times continue to be a financially difficult for many people, so we wanted to ensure that the day would be low-cost summer day out with fun for all the family.
“In fact, the entrance for children remains absolutely free, they can watch the amazing main arena entertainment for free, and enter most of the classes and competitions in our shows for free.”
Other attractions include the horse and pony show, Panache Cheer School, Katie Philpott Dancers, children’s fancy dresses and races, and Mirfield Show Tug-of-War.
There will also be more than 60 stalls and thousands of exhibits in the event’s various shows.
