Brighouse Charity Gala is held on the last Saturday in June at Wellholme Park, Brighouse, West Yorkshire and is a great day out for everyone involved! The 51st Gala will be held on the 25th June, 2016. Why not come along and enjoy a great family day out!
The Gala raises funds for local and national charities and community organisations and is run by a volunteer committee. The dedicated committee meet once a month to plan the event to make sure you get the most out of your day with us!
Time is moving on quickly and preparations are in full swing - keep your eye on the facebook page for updates. Any feedback, ideas and support are always welcome!
The big changes for 2016 are that we'll be having live music throughout the day, so with a large feature stage and festival feel you'll be able to enjoy live bands and solo acts! Also, there will be a Gala Ambassador instead of a Gala Queen, as chosen by Brighouse Ladies Circle (male or female, nominated by a local charity, organisation, family member etc for the amazing volunteer work they've done, funds they've raised or help they've given for example). This years Gala Ambassador has already been decided on and we are pleased to announce that April Quinn has been chosen to be our first Gala Ambassador!
As usual, a vast array of stalls, entertainment and food and drink will be available for you to enjoy. Our procession will commence from Garden Road at noon and head down to the park via Brighouse itself. The duck race will also be taking place again this year thanks to the Scouts. Our dog show (sponsored by Cobbydog) will pull in the crowds again this year and your pooch can be entered on the day from 12 noon if you fancy your dogs chances of winning a rosette or the coveted trophy!
If you would like to take part in the procession or have a stall or trade stand, please see the application forms via the Documents tab - we would love to have you take part and it's not too late to be involved!
