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 2023 sponsorship packages available, please contact our team at the Show Offices on 01437 764 331 or email email@example.com for further information.
The Society is again indebted to Castell Howell, for the sponsorship of the Food Hall at the County Show. President, Mr Brian Jones MBE, pictured with his wife Helen, was the inaugural winner in 2022 of the Lifetime Achievement Award, at the Wales Food and Drink Awards. Recognition for sourcing, promoting and innovation of Welsh produce. Mr Jones is involved with newly appointed Show Governor, Mrs Bethan Watts, in staging this year's Food Hall.
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.
