The preparations for this year's show started pretty much straight after getting our breath back from 2016's show.
Competitive classes details are being finalised so we can make the competitive schedule available, e.g. at the Royal Welsh Spring Fair. Main Ring entertainments are booked and timings being sorted out. Demonstration tent participants and many other attractions are getting booked up now. Trade Stand bookings and Farmers' Market bookings are going well - get in contact soon if you want to book.
This year we are selling Grand Draw tickets at £1 a ticket, both in advance and at the show itself - come along to any of our monthly Farmers' Markets to buy tickets anytime from this Sunday onwards - cash prizes confirmed and many more prizes to be added, we'd love to receive your donations of prizes.
We are very pleased to be working with Bwlch & Crickhowell Young Farmers Club this year, who are planning a speed shearing competition to run on the showground after the main show finishes in the afternoon, and we hope this will be the start of even more collaboration between the show society and the YFC, who have always supported the show, for example with their refreshments tent last year.
Please have a browse around the website; we are gradually filling it up with all the information you need to plan for your great day out with us on 27 August 2017, so keep coming back to learn more as plans get confirmed.
This year's show was again a great success - read our report and see lots of photos of the day
2016 Show Report and Photos
Most of the results for the competitive classes are now in and published here: 2016 Results
There are still some more results to come, for example in the Horse Section, which will be posted to the same page as soon as possible. We will also get some photos on the website when we can.
Thank you to all who supported, exhibited at or attended the show - we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did on the organising team and we are looking forward to seeing you again, same time next year.
Last minute preparations for the show are going well, and things are starting to get really busy.
The competitive schedule has been available for a few weeks now and we are seeing lots of entries coming in - pick up a copy from any of the places listed here (or just view the schedule online on this same page). With expanded classes in the livestock this year, we're looking forward to some great competition.
The final adjustments are being made to the main ring and demonstration area schedules - with such a packed programme of entertainments it needs a little last minute fine tuning.
Plenty of great raffle prizes to be won on the day.
Thank you as always to all our supporters - vice presidents, sponsors, judges, financial donors, committee members, helpers, farmers' market and other traders, entertainers and everyone else - it is lining up to be a great show.
All you need to remember is here:
Sunday, August 28th
Gates open to the public at 9am, tickets £5 and £2, free parking
As ever, the Llangynidr Garden & Craft Show will be running alongside the Agricultural Show, in the village hall. The schedule has now been published - please view it here and choose which competitive classes you want to enter this year
The main ring entertainments are all booked now, together with plenty more attractions around the showground. See the entertainments page for just some of what we have in store.
We are also starting to get prize donations for the grand draw - we'd love to have more to offer, so if you can donate a prize, please get in touch.
Just a quick update to let all of our supporters know that preparations are going well ready for the 10th annual show on 28th August...
Classes, judges and sponsors are getting confirmed for the competitive classes, and we'll post that information on this site once it is completely confirmed.
The Grand Draw prizes are starting to come in - we're starting to post these on the Grand Draw page and would gladly welcome any more suggestions or donations - please contact us if you can help.
We're lining up a range of attractions for the main ring, demonstration tents and other areas around the showground - again as these are confirmed we'll update the attractions page, then publish the programme of displays as we get close to the show day.
Not final yet, and we don't have all the judges and sponsors fully agreed, but a tentative schedule of competitive classes for cattle and sheep has now been published on the website so you can see our proposed new classes for 2016 and starting preparing your entries
I'm the new boy on the show organising team and it looks like I've chosen a great year to arrive. This August 28th we'll be holding the 10th Llangynidr Show and it is shaping up to be a really good one. We're getting lots of entertainments booked up for various parts of the showground, the details of the various competition classes are being finalised, lots of the detailed arrangements are coming together now.
When I first saw the scale of the show last year I was massively impressed, and now I see the level of commitment from the volunteers behind the scenes, this really is a great community effort that I'm thrilled to have become a part of. If you've not been to the show before, this is the year to start - I guarantee you'll have a great day out. I've been flicking through the archive of some photos from previous shows and you get a good flavour of what it is all about - I've put just a few of them here.
August is soon approaching, we hope to see lots of people there enjoying themselves and supporting a fantastic community show. In the meantime, we'll keep you informed here at www.llangynidrshow.org of what we're lining up for you.
