A traditional village show in the heart of the Brecon Beacons August Bank Holiday Saturday every year
TALYBONT-on-USK VILLAGE SHOW, 27th AUGUST 2016 A very successful Village Show and Sports was held in the Henderson Hall and on the Playing Fields on Bank Holiday Saturday. Despite a few early showers the weather did not interfere with the activities on the field which began with a fancy dress competition for the children followed by a full programme of various types of races for children of different age groups. There were many attractions on the field to interest young people and adults alike. These included a static display of owls, a climbing wall, bouncy castle, pony rides and a wide variety of stalls.
Competitive classes for children and young adults were staged in two marquees and these were very well supported with many entries. The public were very interested in the two wheelbarrow competitions for children up to the age of 11 years and for children aged 12 to 16 years. The younger age group were required to plant up the wheelbarrows with flowers and/or vegetables to depict a story written by Roald Dahl while the planting in the wheelbarrows of the older age group depicted the theme “A garden to attract wildlife”
Adult competitive classes for flowers, fruit, vegetables, domestic, art, handicraft and photography were staged in the Henderson Hall.
Altogether a very successful and enjoyable Show, appreciated by the visiting public, and a reflection of the hard work generated by the Show Committee and numerous volunteers.
