Might be a bit late, but try finding a charity that's going and offering to help put up the stall, hand out leaflets, something?

advanced tickets usually cut the price.
membership only works if visiting all three days.
we get passes but it costs a small fortune to enter the animals.

Sadly, more like a quarter of one. Maybe I should treat myself to a ticket anyway (I'm always thinking I should buy some firewood or LED bulbs instead of enjoying myself).

Not sure about this year as I haven't checked but you could buy discounted tickets last year and the year before at Morrisons supermarkets.

So who won the 'pig of the year' competition-chicken feed? Northern Monkey Girl- a pound would buy about 20% of a burger at a show-'fraid I take sandwiches, half of me is Yorkshire-the better half! I help at the pigs in the Royal Welsh show and the Royal Welsh garden and small holder show, so I get a ticket, but they are almost pricing themselves out of the market for many folks. chicken feed

Thankyou! NorthernMonkeyGirl

Northern Monkey Girl you will find chicken feed without any bumping; she will be with her pigs, and you can introduce yourself! Bodger

A quick check of the results reveal that CF's pigs have won every Lop class at the show. A clean sweep! Very Happy NorthernMonkeyGirl

I didn't see anyone with the Goosetree pigs else I'd have said hello, but I did see the shiny red First Prize board thingy Very Happy Well done you! gregotyn

Thankyou, chicken feed. I know that family from Dorset, Steve was the man,-friend of a chap whose herd I looked after in Somerset, when the family went to Spain for 3 weeks and I became a pigman again, (after 25 years away from farming), looking after a small 80ac, farm, 40 suckler cows, pedigree saddlebacks, LWs and durocs with the associated chickens, horses, dogs and cats!- I loved every minute of it and became young again! I also did a show, showing a pig or 2, at the B and West, only annoyed the girl I was going out with decided she didn't want me anymore, best time of my life then-not the girl the showing!! dpack

im not sure a hare necklace is my thing but i have the makings of a new hare hat (the hound ate the last one as a puppy) Laughing NorthernMonkeyGirl

It's a little wooden hare. I was going to be all feminine and civilised and stuff. Ended up in jeans and t-shirt and swamp boots anyway, how did that happen? Very Happy

Talking of hares, thinking of dog raggy toys, do you think some strips of (rabbit??)skin plaited together would stand up to abuse? Pup's last toy lasted a whole two days before getting shredded, I suppose it's my fault for taunting her with "Is it dead yet??".
