SEWERBY Gala has long been a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike.
So this year’s event on Sewerby Cricket Club’s magnificent cliff top ground, with its magnificent sweeping views of the Bay, will certainly be no exception.
It is the 18th year the club have organised the Family Fun Day and Gala which is on Sunday July 31 between 10am and 5pm.
The gala will feature all of their regular favourites, with a few new ones attractions added on top.
For petrolheads, there is the American Custom Car show, while the ever popular helicopter rides over the sea and countryside will also be on offer.
An RSPCA dog show, ferret racing, children’s favourite fairground rides, quad bikes, a rodeo bull, the ever popular martial arts demonstrations, an East Riding Dance display, the Children of the Mist pipes and drums, fencing, a climbing wall and even a classic Punch and Judy show means that there is definitely something for everyone this year.
Delicious food, drinks and refreshments, along with a traditional fun fair and many other top attractions, will keep visitors happy all day.
New for this year is a performance by Steve Caprice, the number one Elvis tribute act in the area and organiser of the popular Elvis weekender held at the Spa earlier this year.
Bridlington’s Red Admiral Majorettes will host a baton-twirling competition featuring teams from all over the country.
The Rotary Club of Bridlington will also be on hand, providing their free blood pressure testing service with Dr Abu Nasser and his staff.
Ken Saul, one of the gala’s organisers, said: “We are again looking forward to a fantastic weekend of entertainment.
“We have all our usual attractions, plus a few more thrown in, so we expect a great day for all the family.”
Admission to the gala is just £3 for adults and £1 for children.
All proceeds go to the upkeep of Sewerby Cricket Club, however charities with stalls at the gala will keep what they raise.
