One of Brighouse’s most popular events is back - and it promises to have something for everyone.
The 2014 Brighouse Charity Gala will be held on Saturday, June 28, in Wellholme Park.
The gala, one of the highlights of the Brighouse social calendar, will feature a range of entertainment, displays, stalls, refreshments and fun for all the family.
Thousands of visitors are expected to flock to the park on Saturday for the gala.
The action-packed day begins at noon when the gala procession sets off from Garden Road, Brighouse, and makes its way to the park.
Taking pride of place in the procession will be the 2014 Gala Queen Paige Roderick and attendant Isobel Haw.
The procession is expected to arrive at the park at approximately 1pm, when Paige will officially open the gala.
Gates will open at the park at noon.
There will be numerous musical acts performing in the park during the afternoon, with the timetable as follows:
