Anglesey Show is waiting for us
26 Jun 2015
The Premier Event on the must visit calendar is ready for us. This will be the 128th time that the Anglesey Show has been held. The Show will be held over two days on Tuesday and Wednesday the 11th and 12th August.
This long track record proves the popularity of the event and the arrangements for this year will be equally attractive as nearly 60,000 people found last year. It is one of the most easily accessible event adjacent to the main A55 road with the showground access points off the nearby A5. A Park and Ride facility is also available that will drop off and pick up users by the main gate. All will be clearly signposted with Stewards to assist.
There are so many different attractions. Over 1,000 horses will be on the showground from the powerful Shire Horses down to the miniature Shetland Ponies. There will be top ranking Show Jumpers in the prestigious Show Jumping classes and the show jumping ring will have a brand new purpose built fence on display this year to match the main ring. There are 10 different breeds of Sheep and classes of Cattle of high calibre. The Pigs and Goats are also a great attraction for visitors, as well as the Poultry, Rabbits and Pigeons. There is so much to see and do. The horticultural marquee with its flower displays, cookery, produce and crafts will attract many. At the Country Life activity area the International Gun Dog Competition will be held as well as other dog competitions and Clay Target Shooting.
There will be over 300 trade stands to be browsed, a large shopping area and food hall. If those attractions are not enough the Fairground may be a temptation, but there is more. In the Main Ring on both days there will be nail biting displays by The Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team – “The White Helmets”. They are a real treat to watch. The past is also featured on the first day only, as there will be a special Pageant by the Anglesey Vintage Equipment Society under the title of “Harvest over the Century”
