Skipton Gala 2012

Posted on Jun 9, 2012 by in Event, Show, Skipton |

Aireville Park in Skipton was once again packed with residents for the annual Skipton Charities Gala. This year the event had gained extra publicity from local resident Martyn Crofts who had appeared on Britains Got Talent in the Spring and had announced it was his dream to open Skipton Gala. His dream came true when he opened the event on stage surrounded by local Gala Queens (All Photos © Tom Holmes/LiveOopNorth.co.uk)
