With the sun shinning from early morning we couldn't have asked for a better start yesterday...and it just got better! The crowds came and we had to use our overflow car park (thanks to the lads from Crickhowell Rugby Club for doing such a great job); entertainment in the main ring kept everyone enthralled and the agricultural classes were keenly contested - entries were up on last year. We hope to see you all again next year...planning starts next week!
OK, so I couldn't resist the pun (even if I did use something similar last year!). After a breath taking display from the Welsh Axemen in 2011 we couldn't not have something similar again. We've decided to 'spread the love' and this year have Wye Valley Axemen at Llangynidr. Their fee will be supporting a number of charities.
Join them at the main ring, directly after the official opening by Kate & Jim Bevan at noon and again at around 16:15
Other entertainment in the main ring on Sunday 26th include Black Mountains Falconry, Powys Carriage Driving Group and the Monmouthshire Beagles.
We are delighted that Kate & Jim Beavan of Great Tre-rhew Farm, Llanvetherine opening our Show this year. Many of you will recognise them from the BBC Lambing Live series a few years back. We hope the Show won't be as hectic as lambing or filming with the BBC!
We are all looking forward to Lynne Allbutt's pigs that will be attending the Show for the first time this year. How cute do they look?? [Check out the link to her site for some great porky-puns - how many will you spot?]
Lynne is going to be busy in Llangynidr this weekend as she is also creating a labyrinth on the Show field. I've included a pic of one that she has previously created. Visitors to the Show will be able to meander through the lines or race to the centre.
We have heard that at least one of our road-side signs has been altered to say that the Show has been cancelled. Please ignore. The Show is going ahead as planned next Sunday (26th).
Donald Morgan will be demonstrating at this year's Show. The floral arrangements he produces will be raffled on the day for Show Funds. Join him at the demonstration end of the Farmers' and Producers' Marquee at 2.30pm.
