Monmouthshire Show set to entertain Forest of Dean

Posted on 12th August 2016

The Monmouthshire Show is ready to welcome thousands of visitors to enjoy the best the Forest of Dean region has to offer. Labelled as the “Biggest One Day Show in Wales” by organisers, it is a chance to enjoy the agricultural heritage around the River Wye.

Scheduled to happen on the 25th August, the show is a perfect destination for families enjoying a cottage holiday in the Forest of Dean. The event includes farm life events and demonstrations. There will be equipment, livestock competitions, horse jumping competitions and more.

In the main ring, there are some unique and exciting events to keep the crowds entertained. The Stampede Stunt Company will stage a medieval jousting tournament; ponies will race pulling scurry carriages in a fast and exciting event. There will be an appearance by the Monmouthshire Fox Hounds and Inter Hunt Relay.

A highlight of the day will be the Grand Parade. In the Main Ring, all of the prize-winning animals will be brought out for display to those in attendance. The champions from each section will be presented with their trophies and awards.

The grounds for the Monmouthshire Show are right on the banks of the River Wye – located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The event includes horticulture displays, dog shows, and a tremendous locally made craft and shopping marquee. The event will feature a food and drink hall as well.
