Events

in Menston village

To ensure your events are listed and come up in the ‘Imminent events’ column at an appropriate time full information needs to be submitted by email. As this is a purely voluntary activity it helps if the format follows that of the date ordered listings below. Please click to go to a full guide page.

Short event announcements are listed below the ‘Regular events and activities’. Larger events, like the Menston Village Show or the Menston Vehicle Show, may have their own page or pages under an appropriate sub-menu heading as detailed information becomes available.

Generally the list will contain only events in Menston or organised by Menston organisations and groups. However, eg, as there is no Roman Catholic Church in Menston important events at SS John Fisher and Thomas More, in Burley, might be listed as the church is attended by many Menston residents.
