Since the GHAS was formed in 1857, it has been bringing the pleasure and excitement of the countryside to our town with an annual show. Originally held on Whit Tuesday, it is now held on Spring Bank Holiday Monday.

 

 

OUR 147th SHOW WAS ON

ADULTS 7.50 (advance tickets 6.50)   PENSIONERS 5.00   CHILDREN (over 4/under 18) 3.00

The New Showfield,
Harwood Lane / Whalley Road

FREE PARKING ON THE SHOWGROUND

Please don't park in residential streets or on the grassed areas.

 

The Society provide a free shuttle bus and park and ride service, for the use of visitors to the show,

with several pick up points around town and to and from the car parks.

 

 

The society continues to promote the traditional sights, produce and crafts of Lancashire,

particularly from Great Harwood and the surrounding areas.

 

We are now looking forward to including more of the local community - groups, schools and individuals - in this aim and invite you to use the links to browse our pages and discover what we have to offer.

Advertising

By having an advertising banner at our shows, sponsoring an event, or becoming a subscriber, you can help to ensure the continuation of a tradition which is slowly but surely dying out in most urban and many rural areas. If you would like to have an advert on our website, in the 'What's on Guide' on show day, or to have your company's banner on display in the main ring, elsewhere on the showground, or at one of the entrances, please contact the secretary.

 

We would like to share our success with other societies, groups or individuals in Hyndburn and other local areas, so are offering the use of the New Showground for a limited number of events each year.

 

Interested parties are asked to contact the Secretary, Miss Rona Westwell: 01254 678411

 

For general enquiries or information, website advertising and discounted advance entry tickets,  contact Carol Armer: Tel. 01254 886643 or email: ghas.carol@outlook.com
