Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society

The Society was formed in 1784. In 1985 it became a registered charity for the "Improvement and Encouragement of Agriculture, particularly in the County of Pembrokeshire". Over the years the Society has thrived in various forms and various locations in Pembrokeshire until 1959 when it found its ideal site at the County Showground, where it remains today.

In 2015 the Society followed the route taken by the majority of agricultural societies to form a Company Limited by Guarantee and re-register as a charity, whose primary objective is to "promote, advance and improve for the benefit of the public, agriculture, horticulture and rural crafts and skills in all their branches".

The Society was formed as a limited company on 14 July 2014, and achieved charity status as the new company on 17 February 2015.

The Board of Directors of PAS Ltd are also its charity trustees enabling the Society to be compliant with both company and charitable law.

The day to day running of the show is carried out by the office staff and the volunteers of the Society.

The Show Council acts in an advisory and consultative capacity, in all matters relating to the organisation's flagship event - the two-day Pembrokeshire County Show. The Council comprises of up to 50 elected members, Directors of PAS Ltd, the President and President-Elect.


Sponsoring the Pembrokeshire County show is a great way to engage with the visitors we welcome to the event each year.

The Show prides itself as being the largest 2-day Agricultural County Show in Wales. It is now recognised as one of the most impressive outdoor rural events in the Country, and as a sponsor you will certainly enjoy two days of action packed fun and entertainment.

There are a variety of sponsorship options available including hospitality at the show. For full details of 2024 sponsorship packages available, please contact our team at the Show Offices on 01437 764 331 or email for further information.

Our President

Arable and beef farmer, Adam Thorne, is this year's President of Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society. Adam is the third generation of his family to hold the position. He runs the family’s arable and beef farm in Robeston West, Milford Haven.

Adam has had a long association with Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society. After visiting the show as a toddler, then helping show the family’s pedigree Herefords, his uncle got him into helping him with stewarding in his early teens. From there he progressed to being a Steward with his own section, Commercial Cattle, and then also the Butcher’s Lambs section.

From stewarding, Adam became involved with committee work, starting as an Executive and then on to the former Finance and General Purposes Committee. He has been Chairman of the Estates Committee for 12 years and is now a Board member and a Trustee.

Our Facilities

One of the Society's objectives is to provide or assist in the provision of facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation or other leisure time occupation of individuals who have need of such facilities by reason of their youth, age, infirmity or disability, financial hardship or social circumstances with the object of improving the conditions of their life.
