Saturday 8th June 2019

Gala day for The 63rd Halifax Charity Gala is Saturday 8th June 2019 as always at Manor Heath Park!

100 Days to Go!

100 Days to Go

VOLUNTEERS have been working since June to put together the most varied Halifax Charity Gala the town has ever seen. Last year, the committee helped to raise a record £30,000 for local good causes, and this year are on track to do even better.

A new feature at this year's fun-packed weekend will be The Bazaar @ Halifax Gala, a corner of independent market stalls trading locally-produced crafts, food & beverages to take home. The concessions team have already reviewed several stallholders for this area but are still on the lookout for small businesses who are keen to support their member charities.

"I'm extremely excited to see the new Bazaar taking shape," says Sharon Tyler, Committee Member. "The Gala has always supported local voluntary organisations, charities and good causes."

"This year, we're taking it one step further by providing a platform to support local businesses to sell their local produce, which is beneficial to our local economy."

"A good local economy can only be of benefit to the people who live in, work in and visit Calderdale."

The Committee have been listening to feedback from the public and will be bringing back the popular Punch & Judy Show and a stilt walker to entertain everyone away from the main arena. In addition to hosting around 40 stalls from charitable organisations, the main arena entertainment is set to be bigger & better than ever before - so keep your eyes peeled for the next announcement!

As usual, their Grand Procession will start at 1130 and will make its way through the town centre before heading up to Manor Heath in time for the opening ceremony at 1pm. The volunteers have been impressed by both the quantity & quality of applications received from both businesses & charities this year - but there's still a couple of spaces left for anybody else who would like to take part.

"After last year's successful Gala Day, our volunteers have been spurred on to put together an even better event for Saturday 8th June 2019," says Lee Gething, Joint Chairperson.

"A lot of hard work goes in to producing Halifax Charity Gala behind the scenes every year, and with just 100 days to go, we're very busy pulling everything together so that thousands of Calderdale families can have a great day out whilst raising money and awareness for our great good causes."

Tickets for Halifax Gala are £4 per adult, £2 per child / OAP / concession, or £10 for a family ticket (admitting 2 adults & up to 3 children) when purchased on the day, with under 5s admitted free of charge. Advance tickets, available online from 1st May visit www.halifaxgala.org.uk to buy or see a list of local outlets, are just £2 each admitting 1 adult or 2 children.

This year will see Halifax Charity stage their 63rd event, which takes places on the 2nd Saturday of June in Manor Heath Park, raising money for over 50 good causes that benefit the people of Calderdale. More details can be found at www.halifaxgala.org.uk
