The event will be free for all children under 16, with adult advance tickets available to purchase from £3.50. £5 tickets can be bought at the gate on the day.

Other highlights will include a horse and pony show, a flower and vegetable show and popular family favourites Build-A-Scarecrow and Tug of War.

The chair of the organising committe, Karen Bullivant, said: “As times continue to be financially difficult for many people, we wanted a low-cost entertainment-packed day out for all the family.

“The whole family can watch the amazing main arena entertainment for free, enter most of the classes and competitions for free - plus they can bring their own food and enjoy it in our picnic area.

“Year on year costs continue to rise, with a bill this year of probably over £30,000 - but we determined to continue what was set down back in 1995 to put on a show with attractions that the public are unlikely to have seen locally before.”

Advance tickets can be bought now from www.mirfieldshow.co.uk, Ramsden’s Butchers, the Melting House Chocolate Shop, Beadelicious and Perfections along Old Bank Road.
