Covid-19 Update1st May 2020
Usk Farmers Club Ltd would like to advise all supporters, that at this current time, we are continuing to plan as normal for our 176th show on Saturday 12th September 2020 and very much hope that we will be able to put on “A Great Day out for everyone!”
We are continuing to monitor the ever-changing situation, as well as the Government advice and are hopeful that as we are an outdoor event, more than 4 months away, we have every chance that we will be able to go ahead, even if some modifications to the “norm” need to be made.
Many trade stand applications have already been received and continue to be received daily, as are payments for memberships and sponsorship (although any received via cheque have not been banked yet for obvious reasons). Schedules are almost complete, but printing will be delayed for a little while yet, just in case!
We will, of course, be directed by government and we will advise you of any updates to our plans as soon as possible. As I am sure you are aware, there is very little certainty at the moment which makes it very difficult for everyone, not least of all event organisers! We hope that some clarification will be received regarding how we move forward from the Government before too long.
It goes without saying, that the health & safety of all our volunteers, traders, exhibitors, contractors, visitors and everyone involved in the show, is our main priority and any decisions made will reflect this as well as taking into account the advice available.
We are grateful for your continued support and hope that you all remain safe and well at this challenging time.
With best wishes,
The Officers of Usk Farmers’ Club
Usk Show | Saturday 12th September 2020
On the second Saturday in September, every year since 1844, Usk Farmers’ Club have held the Usk Show to celebrate the very best of Monmouthshire farming and rural life. Now one of the biggest One-Day Agricultural Shows in the whole of the UK, its popularity is second-to-none.
At the 100 acre Usk Showground near the village of Gwernesney just outside Usk (Sat Nav: NP15 1DD), the Show comprises 11 different Sections each holding their own competitions on the day. Usk Farmers Club Members bring their Cattle, Sheep and Pigs to compete in the Agricultural Livestock Section. There is a thriving Horse Show and Show Jumping Competitions, as well as Goats, Poultry, Rabbits, Horticulture, Homecrafts, a Companion Dog Show, Steam Corner and Vintage Tractors.
In our Main Ring and Countryside Ring we have displays and demonstrations taking place throughout the day. For 2019 our Main Attraction is Josephs Amazing Camel Racing in our Main Ring and Rockwood Dog Agility Display, Black Mountain Falconry, Rowan Working Horses & Usk Valley Gun Dogs in our Countryside Ring.
Over 300 traders join us each year outdoors and in our Food Hall, Craft Marquee or Shopping Mall.
And you can come and enjoy it all!
We have something for everyone and we can’t wait to welcome you…
