Anglesey Show returns and promises to be as popular as ever


Staff reporter (NW Chronicle)

THE Anglesey Agricultural Show is one of the biggest and brightest highlights on the island’s calendar.

The annual event returns this year for the 127th time on Tuesday, August 12, and Wednesday, August 13, at the Mona Showground in Gwalchmai.

A host of animals, machinery and produce will be on display, along with a huge range of trade stands and stalls.

Farmers and animal keepers from across the country will bring out the best of their livestock, with judging competitions for shire and light horses, dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, poultry and rabbits.

Visitors can also expect to see horticulture and floral art displays, a grand parade of animals, live showjumping, cookery and crafts.

The show is seen as a chance to celebrate the island’s unique cultural heritage and identity - expressed through the creative poetry, music, art and literature stalls on site every year.

Organisers picked up an Anglesey Tourism Award in 2011 and 2012 for the event, which attracts thousands of people every year.

Reduced advanced tickets will be available from 01407 720 072.

Entry costs £13.60 for adults, £4.60 for children, £11.70 for senior citizens, or £36 for a family of two adults and two children.
