Show president Peter Aspinall said: “The move back to our Farnley Tyas showground has been very well received and we have had a strong response to this year’s show from trade stand holders, other business partners and competitors.
“Our volunteer team have put a huge amount of effort into the show as always and we are confident that this means 2023 will be another bumper event.”
Entry points to the site are different this year as all access is off Thurstonland Road. A free bus will run from Moor Bottom in Honley from 9am to 6pm so people can leave their cars well away from the showground.
The cost in advance is £15 for adults with children free if people buy online or at the local businesses selling the tickets.
On the day it’s £18 for adults and £3 for children.
