Welcome to the Ruthin Flower & Country Show Website
A month or so back I optimistically put the following paragraph on the site to say that we would do our best to run the show for you this year. Unfortunately we all know the situation has not improved and reluctantly the committee has decided that we will not be able to run the Show in 2020. We expect to be back with an improved show for you in 2021
The virus: Obviously this is major concern to be taken seriously. Current predictions are that this will leave us June/July so the committee has decided to carry on planning for the show to take place. If we are clear of the problem by August we can give you a great and much needed show. There is too much work to do for us to cancel at the moment – we could never catch up if there was an all clear. However we will keep a close watch on developments and will cancel if necessary. There is a lot of time and financial input by our range of supporters so we do want the show to go on. Time will tell. Meanwhile please all keep safe.
The 2020 Show will be held at Ruthin Farmers Auction on August 22nd. The Committee have almost completed the schedule for the Show and copies will be distributed through town by the beginning of July. Posters and Banners should be going up as soon as possible after 1st August.
The main message has to be that the horse show will be returning this year.
This has achieved international fame and designation. An amazing achievement and the Vale of Clwyd is a stronghold for this plum. In recognition of this we created a Denbigh Plum class in 2019, and have had a sponsorship offer to double the prizes in this class. I have started discussions to add more Denbigh Plum classes for this year.
Last year for the first time JCB will have 3 mini-diggers with us and youngsters can have a good look at them and sit in them. Parents bring your phones and cameras for a photo opportunity.
