Have a look at the adverts, see Shelf and Northowram have changed over the 40 years; what went on at the Gala, maybe we could revive some of them!

If anyone has any memorabilia related to Shelf Gala and would loan it to us to include it in this archive section please contact Trevor Priestley – 01274 600601 or email:
