A record 15,000 visitors to this year's Honley Show basked in tropical temperatures on Saturday.

The show attracted more people, had more exhibits and more fun than ever before.

It took place at Ivy Farm, Farnley Tyas, and featured plenty of entertainment - be it two or four-legged or even with wings.

The crowds were impressed by the hundreds of animals on show. Particularly popular were the pygmy goats.

Secretary of the section Doug Lawson from Ilkley said it was the first time he had been to Honley Show.

He said: "There has been a phenomenal amount of interest in the goats - they are really popular with the youngsters."

Watching the goats were the Murphy family from Sheffield.

Dad Steve and mum Clare watched along with youngsters Jack, seven, and Harry, two.

Steve said: "We come every year. It's great for the children. They absolutely adore it.

"It is a really good family day out."

People flocked into the animal tents and there were plenty of oohs and aaahs from the youngsters when they saw the horses, mice and rabbits.

Pigs were on show for the first time in 40 years - but they kept under cover and cooled to make sure they didn't get sunburn!

The Stow family from Waterloo were taking a breather after a walk round the site, which also featured country crafts and shops and stalls.

Dad David Stow said son Nathan, three, and daughter Jasmine, five, had particular favourite attractions.

He said: "Nathan is a big fan of the tractors while Jasmine really enjoyed the horses.

"It is lovely weather and a great day out."

One of the big highlights of the day was the falconry display.

Falconer Rob Allerton entertained the crowds with displays from different hawks and falcons including a peregrine falcon and a harris hawk.

Show spokesman Chris Shaw said they believed this year's event was a record breaker.

He said: "As far as we know at the moment this years seems to be the biggest and the best so far.

"There are lots of attractions and thanks to our selling tickets from our website for the first time we seem to be getting people from further afield.

"There are visitors and exhibitors here from Lancashire, South Yorkshire and the North East. The event just keeps getting bigger and bigger."

Mr Shaw said they made the showground a football-free zone on purpose.

He added: "We were aware that England versus Paraguay would be on but the committee made a conscious decision that it would be a family orientated event rather than a `lad' orientated football event.

"The weather has certainly helped swell numbers. I think some people must have got up and seen the sunshine and just come along."

One first-time exhibitor was Mick Green from Sherburn in Elmet, who was exhibiting ploughs.

He said: "It is a great event. It is my first time but I think I'll be here next year!"
