There will be a fantastic range of display's and attractions happening at the 2017 Show - fun and entertaining for all the family, there is so much to see and do and some of the highlights are listed below (withm even more to follow):
“The Little Nippers” – Terrier Racing Team
Having made their 1st visit to Gower Show last year, back by popular demand we welcome "Little Nippers". Phill Gibbons and his racing terriers are one of the leading terrier racing display teams in the country today. These great little dogs will have you in fits of laughter with their crazy antics. Members of the audience are encouraged to take part with their own dogs too. Even the kids have a chance to participate and can race against one of these little terriers.
Rural crafts and Country skills
After it's outstanding success last year, the rural crafts and country skills will be returning this year with added attractions. More details will follow. The exhibitors will be in full traditional costume and you will have a chance to talk to them and even have a go at some of these skills. Make sure you go and see the exhibition and find out what is involved in keeping these traditional crafts alive.
