Pembrokeshire County Show, the largest county agricultural show in Wales, is taking place over two days this year on August 17 and 18 . This year’s event, the first open to the public since 2019, will be a celebration of rural life in the county.

Mansel Raymond added: “We are very excited about the prospect of seeing our wonderful members, competitors, trade stands, sponsors and community coming together once again this August. Whether you're a Pembrokeshire local or just visiting we're sure you'll have a fantastic day out.”
