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.
Interested in having your business or community organisation at this year's show? Forms for trade stands (£35 or £30 if booked before 31st May) and community/not-for-profit organisations (FREE) are now available via the Trade Stand Booking Form tab above.
We will have a stand at this year's event (11th Feb, Llangynidr Village Hall), organised by Brecon Beacons National Park Authority & Brecon Beacons Tourism. Maybe we'll see you there?
Half day event of speakers, exhibitors and networking opportunities. More info @ https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/tourism-in-the-park-2016-tickets-20456522008?aff=ebrowse
Bookings are still being taken for trade and not-for-profit pitches outside on the show ground. Forms are available to download.
We hope you've been able to pick up copies at the many shops and feed suppliers around the area. If not here are copies for both the agricultural show (cattle, sheep and horse classes, dog and pet shows, family fun classes etc) and the garden and craft show. If you are bringing cattle or sheep you can pre-enter up until the 24th.
We are now taking bookings for trade and exhibition stands for this year's show. Commercial/trade space remains at £30 if you book before August 16th. For anyone booking after this date the pitch fee is £35. Pitch options are: the Farmers' and Producers' marquee (table and chair provided; some with electricity) or out on the showground (bring your own gazebo, table etc).
Forms are available from here or use the tab above.
Just added to the garden show page are templates for the children's tractor and farm animal collages, the text for the hand writing competition and recipes for classes 109, 110 and 111 in the domestic section. If you find that you are entering so many classes that you need more space on your entry form, just download an extra page - we've added it to the site as well!
