The date for this year’s Monmouthshire Show has changed for the first time in 150 years! The new show date is Saturday, July 1 and there are lots of things to see and do for everyone!

Our main ring show entertainment is James Dylan’s Motorbike Stuntworld. A jaw-dropping show of ramp jumps, wheelies and other amazing motorcycle stunts that have to be seen to be believed!

The livestock and horse competitions will take place all day, come and see the animals beautifully turned out, competing for the Championship prize of the show.

We are delighted to be hosting for the first time this year TheWelsh Tug of War Championships. Men’s, Ladies and Junior teams will compete for the prestigious title. With lots of action, the finals will take place in the afternoon.

The Countryside Area remains a firm favourite with the return of the Black Mountain Falconry display with their birds of prey and stunning
Andalusian horse. There are farm animals to pet, and, for the braver ones among you, stroke and hold an exotic reptile! The Bee Village returns with their Flying Bees display.

There will be vintage vehicles, and heavy horse demonstration. Watch the professionals work their gun dogs or have some fun with your own in the fun dog show. The whole family can join in and to let off steam there are children’s races. Plus many more rural displays for you to take part in.

Home and Gardens have fantastic competitions for all ages! From painting to baking cakes, wine, honey and hanging baskets to be displayed on a central pergola. It will be a marquee full with a riot of floral colour and wonderful aromas. Closing date for the classes is June 24, so get planting now!

We have lots of tradestands once again. There will be many new traders this year in the Craft & Shopping Mall. As ever the Food Hall will be full of local freshly produced food and tantalizing delights.

For the children we have Jitterbug Circus and Professor Crump to entertain, along with choirs and bands to stop and listen to around the showground. Don’t forget the wonderful Mr Frog Treasure Hunt, free entry, and prizes for finding our green friends around the show. Come and have a great day out!
