Wales’s largest county agricultural show returns this summer after a two-year hiatus to celebrate rural life in Pembrokeshire
Pembrokeshire County Show, the largest county agricultural show in Wales, is going ahead this year on 17 and 18 August. This year’s event, the first open to the public since 2019, will be a celebration of rural life in the county.
The last full-scale show, which would normally attract around 100,000 visitors and competitors, was held in August 2019 followed by a virtual event in 2020 and a scaled down version in 2021 for animals and members only.
Mansel Raymond, Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society President said: “We are very excited about the prospect of seeing our wonderful members, competitors, trade stands, sponsors and community coming together once again this August. Whether you’re a Pembrokeshire local or just visiting we’re sure you’ll have a fantastic day out.”
There will be some changes this year to the layout of the County Show to make it a better experience for everyone including the trade stands and visitors. There will be several smaller rings as was the case in the 2021 show. To enable a much larger public viewing area it has also been decided to remove all marquees and trade stands from the immediate main ringside. This year there will also be a new open air ‘street food’ area.
To enable a smooth transition, it is recommended that all trade and catering stands secure their pitches as soon as possible. Visit www.pembsshow.org to book online or telephone: 01437 764 331.
Sponsorship and Pembrokeshire County Show have been a successful combination for the last 45 years. Sponsors have enjoyed promoting their businesses through the varied mediums of banners, announcements, show rings, buildings, equine and livestock classes and championships over the years.
These days the society also offer corporate sponsorship on the website, with class and championship through social media platforms. Sponsorship packages are available for all, from individuals all the way to the large corporate businesses.
Tickets for Society members and the public will be launched in the near future.
