Anglesey County Show 2017

21st July 2017 | by Whitehouse Leisure Park

If you are staying at Whitehouse Leisure Park between the 15th and 16th August 2017 you might want to take a day trip out to the Anglesey County Show 2017. It’s a great day out for all the family with plenty to do and see.

The show is on for two days and there is easy access to it via the A55. If you wish you can utilise the Park & Ride facility for collection from and return to the main gate. The showground is well signposted but around 60,000 visitors are likely to attend, so setting off early is advisable.

Livestock

Children will love the many different horses that will be on display including majestic Shires and cute miniature Shetland Ponies.  There will also be a variety of sheep and cattle breeds, lots of rabbits, goats and pigs as well as poultry and pigeons.

Show Jumping

There will be show jumping events with some of the world’s best showjumpers participating.  The International Gun Dog Show can be found in its usual place at the Country Life Activity Area and there will also be other dog events.

Clay Pigeon Shooting & Horticulture

You can try your hand at Clay Pigeon Shooting or visit the horticultural area where there will be many plant and flower species on show as well as produce, craft and cookery displays.

Vintage Farm Equipment Pageant

On the first day of the show, you’ll be able to see a selection of vintage farm equipment in the Harvest of the Century Pageant, organised by the Anglesey Vintage Equipment Society.  Kids can have their faces painted whilst enjoying magicians performing their tricks. There will also be a fairground with lots of rides.

Motor Cycle Stunts

Among other attractions, on both days of the show, the Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team will perform some death defying stunts.
