Hundreds of visitors are expected in Wath next weekend for a day of family-packed fun.

The annual town gala kicks off at 1pm on Saturday, July 12, in the grounds at the back of the Town Hall with a whole host of attractions.

The event regularly attracts crowds of more than 500 and this year is expected to be no exception.

Co-organiser Paul Murray, 42, centre manager of Montgomery Hall, said: “I’m sure this year will be as good as previous years, if not even better.

“There will be plenty to see and do so come and have a look. It is always a great day out.”

The ever-popular tug-of-war is expected to pull in the crowds, along with the dog show.

There will be a raffle, range of stalls, children’s games and activities, including a bouncy castle and sports games.

Bargain hunters will also be able to browse around a number of stalls in Montgomery Hall.

It is free to attend and the gala will run until 4pm.
