The Bridgend County Show commenced in 1946 as a show to welcome home those who had been serving this country in WW2. At the same time it encouraged them back into the community and into the home by celebrating their agriculture inheritance.
Now over 70 years later the show continues to welcome visitors from both far and near with the ethos still being in the community and for the community.
Bridgend County show offers an exciting mix of entertainment, trade stands, horticulture, food, equestrian events and a lot more besides creating a perfect day out for the family.
The shows moto is Something for Everyone and with FREE entry and FREE parking you may well be spoilt for choice!
Bridgend County Show 2020
Having spent several years at Pencoed Campus, it has not been an easy decision to uproot the show and move to a new venue. The reasons are many and varied but the main reasons are that vehicle parking is very restricted and there is no chance of any more land becoming available at Pencoed, this along with the future development planned for the campus may mean that over the next few years there may be less land available for events.
We have been aware that this may become a problem for several years and have made every effort to find a new site within Bridgend County, however we have not been able to find anywhere that is suitable for an event such as ours.
A short time ago one of our committee members contacted Penllyn Estate and after a short discussion we reached an agreement with them that is beneficial to us both, this will mean the 2020 Bridgend County Show will take place on land owned by Penllyn Estate, just behind Llangan Primary School. (postcode CF35 5DR)
Our thanks to Pencoed Campus for their hospitality during our time there and we wish them every success with their future endeavours. We would also like to thank the Homfray family of Penllyn Estates and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with them.
A layout of the new show field is available from our downloads section above and the majority of prices for trade stands etc will remain the same for 2020. A list of available options for those wishing to support next years show are included in a brochure available by contacting us at the Office or by using the downloads section above. Contact details for the various section secretaries are available on this website.
