Monmouth Show aims to bring town and country together – in our Discover the Country Marquee the focus is on education on farming and rural issues.
Each year the marquee covers a different area of interest: in 2015 our theme is ‘World of Wool’ in support of The Campaign for Wool: much of Monmouthshire’s farming history is based on sheep and the wool trade. In the marquee we will have:
A variety of live sheep breeds on display with contrasting wool colours and textures
Talks on sheep husbandry by local well known TV presenter (and show committee member) Kate Beavan
Spinning and weaving demonstrations and ‘have a go’ workshops
Knitting, crotchet and woolcraft workshops for children
A photography exhibition chronicling the history of Abergavenny Market
