Other attractions include BusOasis, Yorkshire Water, The environment agency and Calder Valley Search and Rescue. 

The Salem Church will also have a cake and refreshment stall. 

PS Ben Doughty who has helped to organise the event, said: 

"It promises to be a great day out so why not come along and make a day of it. Last year’s event saw over 5000 people come through the doors and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again, and welcoming new next weekend. 

"It's a great chance not only to come and have some fun but to come and see what happens at a busy police station and meet some of the characters based there. 

"Halifax Police Station is the nerve-centre of policing in the district so why not come along and see what happens - there will be tours of the building and the cells throughout the day so people can have a good look around. 

"And if that wasn't enough, the West Yorkshire Police Band, and other local groups will be playing and dancing to keep everyone entertained and in high spirits. There will also be burgers and a wood fired pizza stall." 

Halifax Police Station is on Richmond Close, Halifax, HX1 5TW. 

There is no on-site parking for the event and all acts and attractions are subject to change with no prior notice or due to operational demands. 

Fairground attractions are charged for.
