Why be a Member of Honley Show?

Reasons to be cheerful

Well firstly you get to enjoy a more comfortable, weatherproof visit to a mainly outdoor event. Our light, airy marquee has plenty of seating and tables to come back to when you’ve had a tour of the on field attractions.

Drink in the view

There is free tea and a piece of cake for all members and dare we say it, more importantly a private bar! For the hungrier members we also offer a great value pre-bookable two course buffet lunch although you are welcome to bring in your own food.

There is also a ringside enclosure with great views of all the main ring events

It’s all delightfully convenient
