The Llanthony Show was founded back in 1961. It is one of the only shows of its kind still, completely organized by local volunteers, with no major corporate sponsorship involved. The Show's popularity is based on local support on a strictly non-commercial basis.
The Show was originally founded following a critical BBC documentary about the Llanthony Valley in 1959 called "The Dying Valley". Local people banded together at the first Show Committee to prove that the Llanthony Valley was anything but dying! Its continuing success over the last four decades has proved how wrong that original judgment was.
The Llanthony Valley and District Show has one of the best sites of all local shows, deep in the Llanthony Valley near Llanthony Abbey, surrounded by the Black Mountains of Monmouthshire. It sits at the heart of a thriving farming community, and it's longstanding popularity is driven by the full support of the local community.
