Llanthony Valley & District ShowSat 5th Aug 2017
Step back in time and enjoy a traditional rural show
Saturday 5th August 2017
The Llanthony Show was founded back in 1961. It is one of the only shows of its kind still, completely organised by local volunteers, with no major corporate sponsorship involved. The Show’s popularity is based on local support on a strictly non-commercial basis.
The Show was originally founded following a critical BBC documentary about the Llanthony Valley in 1959 called “The Dying Valley”. Local people banded together at the first Show Committee to prove that the Llanthony Valley was anything but dying! Its continuing success over the last four decades has proved how wrong that original judgment was.
The Llanthony Valley and District Show has one of the best sites of all local shows, deep in the Llanthony Valley near Llanthony Abbey, surrounded by the Black Mountains of Monmouthshire. It sits at the heart of a thriving farming community, and it’s longstanding popularity is driven by the full support of the local community.
Perhaps you would like to represent “Hoofin-About” in the real live Rodeo which is free to enter with prizes to be won.
Travelling on Friday you can camp in the field down the road from Trevelog farm. Make sure to arrive early as there is limited space in the field, camp fire in the evening or book now at The Half Moon Hotel, limited rooms for this popular event. Alternatively arrive Saturday morning, judging starts at 9am.
