There will be space for more trade stands at the South Wales Kennel Association Championship Show in 2003 at its new venue The Wales & West Showground, Gwernesney, Nr Usk, Monmouthshire.
The Wales & West Showground lies immediately adjacent to the A449 dual carriageway which links the M4 at Newport to the M50 at Ross-On-Wye via the A40. Approximate distances are: M4 - 9 miles, M50 - 24 miles, Newport - 12 miles, Cardiff - 25 miles, Bristol - 30 miles. The Showground is therefore easily accessible from the major population centres of south east Wales, the West Midlands and West Country as well as the local towns:- Usk - 2 miles, Monmouth - 12 miles, Abergavenny - 15 miles, Chepstow & Caldicot - 10 miles and Cwmbran - 12 miles. With the additional space available it is hoped that the new venue will attract more exhibitors and more spectators from the surrounding towns.
Priority will be given to those stands that have attended the show in the past and application forms will be sent to those companies first. Stand space will then be allocated to other applicants as required. Would other interested stand holders therefore please apply in writing to the Secretary Mrs Isobell J Dyke, 85 Ty-Glas Road, Llanishen, Cardiff CF14 5ED giving details of the products offered, the foot frontage and depth required as soon as possible. Those companies who have already applied need not do so again.
