Children and Family

Bromyard Gala @ Burgess Farm, Avenbury

A special arena event to celebrate 50 years of the Bromyard Gala will see JCB's world famous dancing diggers take centre stage. 

The team are experts in driving Backhoe Loaders and making them do things you wouldn't imagine a digger could do. 

Bromyard Gala began in 1967 to highlight the attractions of the town that potential visitors would miss if they used the newly built A44 by-pass.

Over the years the Gala took on the role of promoting country pursuits and became a regular fixture in the world of the steam enthusiast.

The historical perspective developed with displays of vintage vehicles and entertainment in the main arena. 

There will also be a celebration of rural life from the famous ancient breed of Hereford cattle, a show of Ryeland sheep and other breeds, hand-tying of fishing flies, a collection of farm animals and poultry, and a variety of traditional country crafts demonstrated by skilled artisans.

Visit here for more information.
