PUlling power The tug-o-war will make a welcome return to this year's Mirfield show, which takes place in just two weeks' time..

North Kirklees’s biggest agricultural show is just over two weeks away, and the Reporter Series is giving you the chance to get a piece of the action.

We have teamed up with the organisers of Mirfield Show to give you the chance to win one of 10 pairs of tickets for the event on Sunday August 17.

The show, which organisers hope will attract bumper crowds, is set to have some new events for this year, including a great Yorkshire pudding bake-off.

Organiser Richard Hartley said: “The theme of this year’s event will be a celebration of all things Yorkshire, Mirfield-style.

“What better way to do this than to introduce a new Yorkshire pudding class to embrace the theme.”

Competition committee member Louise Hardy said: “Each and every one of us makes and bakes our Yorkshires to a number of different recipe variations, some of which are secret family recipe’s passed down through generations.

“If you think your pudding’s are champions, now is your chance to prove it.”

Along with the prestige of baking the best Yorkshire puddings in Mirfield, this year the Mirfield Reporter Trophy will be awarded to the winner of the class.

For those more green fingered, this year there are 44 different flower and vegetable classes to enter, including the new Yorkshire rhubarb and Yorkshire rose classes, plus three for children and four for novices.

It also wouldn’t be the Mirfield Show without the horse and pony event, in addition to the now larger-than-ever fun dog show.
