Event Honley Show

The show will return to the traditional format and scale of a competitive agricultural show with competitions being held in most of the usual animal classes, including the very welcome return of the horse classes. These will sit alongside the familiar food and drink stalls, entertainments and outdoor shopping opportunities. The new site will also enable some new areas to be explored, for example, the importance of sustainable farming.

It provides a fun day out for all the family whether you live in Kirklees, West Yorkshire or the North of England.

Event Cancer Research UK's Race for Life

Cancer Research UK's Race for Life is an amazing women-only series of events which raises millions of pounds every year for life-saving research into 200 types of cancer - helping men, women and children across Yorkshire survive.

Race for Life is non-competitive. Women and girls of all ages, shapes and sizes can choose whether to walk, jog or run the 5k route. Most are able to walk 5k in an hour. All women are welcome, regardless of whether they are taking part on their own or as part of a group.

By uniting - and enlisting the support of the men and boys in their lives - women across Huddersfield can make a stand against cancer - a disease which affects 26,700 people in Yorkshire and the Humber every year.
