Held at Usk Showground (NP15 1DD) on Saturday, September 9, the Show has an excellent reputation as a Local Agricultural Show, however, there is so much more to see than just livestock.

Alongside the cows, sheep, pigs and goats, you can see horses and show jumping, visit the poultry, rabbits, horticulture and homecraft marquees, admire vintage tractors and engines, see the military vehicles brought along by the South East Wales Military Vehicle Trust and check out the models and miniature steamers in Steam Corner.

All this, plus there’s a fun Companion Dog Show that is open to all, two arenas that run displays and demonstrations all day long and over 300 trade stands for shopping galore!

For children there is the brilliant Junkfish tent where they can have a go at Make-&-Take Crafts, play with circus toys or the Giant Junk Ball Run – all for FREE! There will also be inflatables, fair rides and side shows around the showground.

In the arenas, motorbike stunt show, Broke FMX, will be performing their acrobatic freestyle motocross stunts and tricks in two afternoon shows in theMain Ring. A traditional Parade of Hounds will be made by the Curre and Llangibby Hunt and theMounted Pony Club Games are back in the Main Ring in a lunchtime slot. The Grand Parade of Livestock and Horses mid-afternoon gives you the chance to see all the livestock champions and at 6pm the Main Ring concludes with a Hot Air Balloon Ascent.
