The day takes place on Sunday May 31 from 10-5 and this year celebrates its 16th anniversary.

The Show is a fantastic day out for the whole family and has evolved from a traditional annual Young Farmers Rally to become one of the most successful one-day agricultural events in the county.

Each year the organising committee aims to create a traditional country event which promotes British food and farming, provides visitors with an insight into countryside crafts and creates an arena for Young Farmers to demonstrate their skills in a variety of competitions and activities.

Throughout the day, visitors can enjoy a range of main ring displays including sheepdogs and falconry and the return of the Welsh Axemen.

The ever popular sheep show will also be performing throughout the day in the livestock area where visitors will be able to see a variety of livestock, including rare breeds.

Country crafts like thatching, fencing and stick making will also be on display.
