What will there be on Show in 2021?
Due to limited space at this year’s Centenary Event, there will a restricted number of tractors reflecting the development of the tractor during the 20th century. Tractors increasingly played a part in agriculture from the first World War. The development of the tractor has special significance in our area as a result of the manufacture of David Brown tractors over the hill in Meltham.
All the exhibits will be available for viewing after 11pm but please do not climb onto any of them. Their proud owners will probably be close by and enjoy nothing more than imparting their wisdom and knowledge to any unsuspecting members of the public, so please feel free to ask them questions!
As there will only be a very small number of tractors involved this year due to space limitations and the impact of Covid, unfortunately it is not possible to offer the usual open invitation. We hope that next year we will be able to return to normal and look forward to your continued support as the tractors always play an important role in the Honley Show.

Every year, at Honley Show, we are delighted to bring you a display of vintage tractors and farm machinery. These machines that have worked the land, many still in use today and kept running with the love and attention of their owners. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful display of our world famous local David Brown tractors, from pre 1956 Cropmasters right up to the last models to run off the line at Meltham in 1988. We have many lovingly restored vintage tractors, as well as some in their original condition, with models including the instantly recognisable grey Fergies, the magnificent Field Marshall series contractors, David Browns of all shapes, ages and sizes including a very rare 1953 Bristol 20 Crawler complete with the Tru-Tract plough built by David Brown. We hope to have good display too of horticultural implements. Please stop by to speak with their owners, they will be delighted to tell you about their exhibits. We will be parading in the main ring during the afternoon so please ensure you get a good ringside seat to admire these wonderful machines!
