We will be in our brand new large BRIGHT ORANGE gazebo, so we shouldn’t be too difficult to find! So this year we should also be RAINPROOF, your all welcome to come and hide if it does get as bad as last year, you can browse while your sheltering. We will be selling 2018 Calendars featuring Stanley R Boardman’s work. Do come early before they are all gone.

We have better displays, a tombola, thngss just for fun and there may even be costumes involved.

We are using the show to launch our new Logo and as the pre-launch of a project to involve schools and communities in our Local History, particularly from the 1950s onwards, Come along and find out about it, maybe we can help each other.

Thanks to Keighley Town Council for a £1000 grant to help with the purchase of equipment that has enabled us to start this project.
