You could bring your own, but why not buy what you need from the Food Hall or food stand areas which sells everything from burgers to sandwiches.
A firm favourite with all our visitors is the Food Hall. Local food producers will be joining us to promote and sell the very best of Welsh country food. Be sure to give them a visit and find something to take home and enjoy.
What facilities are there for disabled people?
We have looked at the question of facilities for our disabled visitors very carefully. Parking is reserved for a large number of disabled visitors within the showground, please follow direction signs.
Please note, however, that the showground is an agricultural field and, as such, the surface may be uneven. Please take every care as you enjoy the show.
