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), situated on Pentre Road, Pontardulais (SA4 8DQ), 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.
Since 2013, a fun dog show with ‘enter on the day’ classes has been a very popular attraction – the whole aim being for fun.. This year sees a change to the schedule to keep up with changes in competitor needs. There will be a new Miscellaneous Section aimed at being a fun competition in the showing ring. It is hoped the classes will encourage people to dip a toe into the showing world and give it a go!
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 and will be full to bursting again this year.
Entertainment throughout the day is the aim with new and changing programme of events annually. Loopy Lews are returning again this year due to popular demand.
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 Wales and beyond.
