What's on in the Penistone Area - 2007

Local Events List
Lots of events came and went in 2007 but some June and August events were cancelled because of the unusually heavy rain. Emley Show and Midhopestones Gala were rained off but Penistone show, however, was timed to perfection. Not only because of the weather but it beat an animal movement ban by a whisker.
