The 2018 Show!
After such an amazing year in 2017 we are looking forward to welcoming all our exhibitors and visors alike in 2018.
The Horticultural Tent will this year feature some of our local schools and how they are transforming their environment. In addition we are introducing Show Gardens to compliment the already successful Horticulture exhibits.
Craft Tent and Food Hall
The 2018 Shows FOOD and CRAFT tents are now fully booked. No further applications can be accepted.
There is a great interest in trade stand bookings for 2018. If you have yet to book, please do so to avoid any disappointment.
The Welsh Festival
After a successful initial visit last year, we are pleased to welcome The Welsh Festival to the show again this year. On Sunday 15th July the main marquee (Members) will again be hosting their festival celebrating the Welsh Language in song and verse.
The Dance Centre AcademySunday afternoon of the 15th July we are again delighted to welcome back the The Dance Centre Academy who will be inviting all those interested to an afternoon Tea Dance. This years theme is the 1940's and with some rather special dance demonstrations. They are also arranging something rather special for the main ring on the Saturday, but we are not allowed to say too much about that!!
In 2017 the poultry section decided not to have a competitive show but to stage a display of birds in a setting that the visiting public may not have seen before.
This was so well received by the visitors, indeed we understand record numbers visited the exhibition, that they will be repeating this but with more breeds!
Each display holding 1 male and 3 females with an information leaflet on each breed displayed on the outside. Those wishing to purchase birds or eggs will be provided with contact details of the breeder of the stock they wish to purchase and times when young birds will be available and the cost and any special requirements the chosen breed may need.
The section will now be by invitation due to the recent problems with Avian Flu outbreak and the more restrictive rules sent out by DEFRA. We understand that some exhibitors may be disappointed that they will not be able to compete in a traditional poultry show this year. However we feel it important that we maintain a Presence of Poultry at this year’s show and this is way that we can almost guarantee that.
As a registered Charity we are keen to continue to offer FREE entry to The Bridgend County Show.
We are therefore delighted to acknowledge those sponsors who help us achieve this. You can find their details HERE.
