With the show established in 1889 in Dantwyn, Pontardulais and celebrating its centenary show in 2003, Pontardulais Show remains one of the most prestigious one day agricultural shows in South Wales.
Held annually on August Bank Holiday Monday, (last Monday in the month), the whole ethos of the show remains that it is run ‘for the betterment of agriculture’. Cattle, sheep, pigs, horses and dogs are the livestock features of the day with horticultural and vintage sections maintaining their popularity.
This year also sees the introduction of a poultry show and a fun dog show with ‘enter on the day’ classes – the whole aim being for fun.
Traders sell everything from a toothbrush to a tractor on the field and entertainment, both in the main ring and around the showground, changes to meet public demands. The craft tent plays host to a wide range of styles of product from cakes to cards.
Entertainment throughout the day is the aim with new and changing programme of events annually.
With an established committee of locals and those from further afield, the show hosts a wide range of classes tailored to meet the changing needs and requests of exhibitors who come from across Wales and beyond to exhibit in the show.
