The summer of 1976 and a snapshot of the vast crowds that visited Brighouse for the annual charity gala on that glorious summer’s day. This has been an event not to miss from when it all started back in 1965. Brighouse Charity Gala with its team of long-standing dedicated organisers, helpers and what are often referred to as ‘doers’ will all be once again doing their stuff for 2015.

Next year’s gala is going to be something special as it celebrates its 50th anniversary. Did you venture down to what was a new event on the Brighouse calendar all those years ago?

I will be writing a series of stories about gala day over those years in the run-up to the big day. If you have a story to tell please contact me by email: I will be very pleased to hear from you.

We have a number of wonderful events in Brighouse now, events where Brighouse people turn out in their thousands. So here is a date for your diary: Saturday, June 27, 2015 - the 50th Brighouse Charity Gala. I know the organisers’ plans will include many wonderful things for those people who attend. Make sure you don’t miss out - be there to be part of it.
