Beetham Sports has been held annually on the last Saturday of July since 1920. Its origins date back to February 26th of that year when Messrs. Hanson, Stainton, Atkinson, Casson, Pattynson and Hewett got together at the Beetham Reading Room, now part of the Heron Theatre. They wished to commemorate the signing of the Armistice after World War One and decided to create a games festival for both children and adults which has changed little over the years.

Admission: £2.50;  Children 50p (free if in fancy dress) TBC
