Llanilar Agricultural Show

The Llanilar Show is held on the second Saturday of August each year and attracts entries for field, produce, arts and crafts from around the county. Though the Show is primarily an agricultural and horticultural event there is an increasingly popular dog show competition which attracts a growing number of the public, as well as a show jumping competition.

Message from the President

Meirion Davies has taken over from Ann Lloyd as Chair of the Show Committee so this is a great opportunity to welcome Meirion and also to pay tribute to all that Ann has done for the Llanilar Show over the last few years.

The Covid pandemic was a disaster for many local community organisations, and could so easily have finished the Llanilar Show. Ann has guided us through this difficult time and last year the Show was very much back to normal. Diolch yn fawr Ann.

In 2024, we are delighted to welcome the North Country Cheviots National Show. This comes to Wales once every three years, and it is a great honour to have been asked to host this event. Indeed, it reflects on all the hard work so many people do to make our show a success, year in year out. Remember, this is your local show, so please come and enjoy it, and bring family and friends. There is a competition suitable for everyone. In 2024 I am focussing on the Victoria Sponge class; a neighbour (no names, but farms on the right as you go to Trawscoed) has passed me his top tips on baking, so success is surely guaranteed!

Thank you to all our sponsors, supporters and competitors. I hope everyone has an enjoyable Show.

Message from the Chairman

It is a pleasure to welcome you all to Llanilar Show 2024 as this is my first year as Chairman, which is quite an honour. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our former Chair Ann Lloyd for her exceptional work over the last few years – big shoes to fill. I am looking forward to co-working with the officers and members of the committee, who give a huge effort to ensure that the Show is successful.

Last year was a particularly good Show and it was great to see the marquee back on the field, after a few years’ absence.

Our honoured guest this year is Mr David Davies or, as we know him, “Dai Coedllys”. Dai has been an ardent supporter of the Show over the years and is always willing to help towards the preparation of the Show – totally deserved.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the collectors, stewards and judges for their tireless work and wish the Show every success again this year, hoping that the weather will be on our side.

I look forward to seeing you all in August in Llanilar.

Meirion Davies
