Welcome to the Gower Show
The annual Gower Show traditionally takes place on the first Sunday in August and this year will be held on the 7th August 2016. The show is held in the beautiful grounds of Penrice Castle Park, Reynoldston, by kind permission of the Methuen-Campbell family.
This will be the 99th Annual Show. Gower Show aims to be a very traditional agricultural show, a chance for local farmers to get together and bring along examples of their best stock, including cattle, sheep, pigs and piglets. The local farmers also enter samples of their crops and and compete to see who produces the best grassland. Above all it is a reminder of how very important farming is to our area.
Horses are always very popular at the Show and attract a very high standard of competition throughout all the horse showing sections. The horse schedule has over 90 classes and there will be fine examples of almost every type of breed, large and small, that you can think of. The competition in the horse rings will commence at 9.00am.
In the white marquees dotted around the castle field you will find the other sections of the show such as Horticulture with artistic flower arranging, or the Cookery & WI tent where the results of home baking are compared. There is a full range of children’s classes too and the children really do enjoy creating their works of art to show off in this section.
In the Honey & Bee tent you can see a wonderful exhibition in this growing section, and even get fully suited up and get a really close look at a bee hive. Make sure you call in early to book your place.
If you fancy a bit of shopping there are plenty of opportunites to see and buy lots of examples of traditional crafts, and the every popular food tent with plenty of samples to taste!
The show has something for the whole family. If you enjoy the countryside, or are looking for a really great day out, you will enjoy The Gower Show – it is a day not to be missed.
