AN ANNUAL celebration of agriculture, livestock and handcraft is returning to Berriew this summer.

The 74th Berriew Show is scheduled to be held on Saturday, August 26, as over 60 craft stalls and 90 trade stands will arrive on the showground for a day of festivities.

Organisers are hoping to make this installment the biggest and best yet.

Show president Gill Owen said: “Last year saw a record attendance and we look forward once again to welcoming thousands of visitors to enjoy a full day at the show.”

The field will be full of attractions from a packed programme in the main arena, to live music, a large horse and dog show, a big display of rare breeds, vintage vehicles and 90 trade stands covering everything from agricultural machinery, trucks, seeds, fencing and sheep dipping to clothing, furnishing, electric cycles, plants and pottery.

There will also be 60 craft stalls, showcasing the skills of local residents as the stalls will include everything from cheese, salami, gin, honey and heritage food to ceramics, homeware, art, stationery and gifts.

Berriew Show committee member Phil Bettley said: “We have made some big changes for 2023.

“We have an improved parking and entry system, better green waste facilities, a new pavilion and an expanded food and drink court. None of this would be possible without the generosity of our sponsors, and the tremendous support of the thousands of visitors who flocked to the show last year.

“We look forward to welcoming you for a full day of family fun and community spirit on August Bank Holiday Saturday.”

Chairman Wayne Jones added: “Our show is one of the foremost in Montgomeryshire.

"We try to provide something for everyone so that all our visitors, sponsors, stallholders and exhibitors go home with a smile on their faces.”
