Ackworth Gala

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.
