Todays Shelley Gala had its origins a long time ago, but like most villages Galas come and Galas go. The present highly successful Gala started with a one off to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. Shortly afterwards the Community Association decided to revive the Shelley Gala and from then on it has continued from strength to strength.
All the proceeds from the Gala are returned into other organisations within the village.
