The first Ackworth Gala was held in 1977 to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee.
This turned into an annual event and there has been a gala each June at Carr Bridge Playing Field ever since. Comprising of a parade, arena events, fundraising stalls and activities for the children, the event is always popular and well attended.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and following government guidelines Ackworth Gala 2020 has been cancelled.
More details to follow in due course.
