People planning for entries for this year’s Llanfyllin and District Agricultural Horticultural Show have been reminded of the upcoming closing date for the event.

Entries for the show must be submitted before Thursday, August 4.

The popular show returns to Bodfach Park on Saturday, August 13, after a two-year hiatus as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The show is held on land owned by Christopher and Laura Acton, owners of Bodfach Hall and Janet Jones, Parc, president for the 2019 show.

The 2022 show promises to be another worthy chapter in the event’s rich history of celebrating the countryside and community as well as providing a great opportunity to meet, compete and have a fun family day out.

Headlining the entertainment will be the Atkinson Action Horses stunt team from Yorkshire which has been providing horses and riders for TV and film, photo shoots and live events for more than 25 years.

Ridgeway Rentals, a leading plant hire company based in St Martins, are serving as the main sponsor of the show for the first time.

A show highlight is the sheep shearing competition, which attracts some sheep shearers from across Wales.

Competitions include classes for sheep, horses, sheep dog trials, horticulture, floral art, cookery and crafts, photography, art, woodwork and scarecrow making.

The show will also have its traditional Village Green areas with activities for children, Porthywaen Silver Band, a vintage machinery display, a dog show, terrier racing, a fun fair, trade stands and a bar.

On the closing day for entries, show section secretaries will be available at The Institute, Llanfyllin from 2pm to 6pm to receive last minute entries.

There will be no craft and cookery section entries accepted on show day.

Horses entered on show day will be charged an additional £1 per entry.

Entries are welcomed for all competitions in the show schedule, which can be downloaded from the show’s website or collected from local shops in and around Llanfyllin.
