Successful weekend for Clwyd 2020 at Ruthin Livestock Market

Successful weekend for Clwyd 2020 at Ruthin Livestock Market

Ruthin Livestock Market was a hive of events over the end of May bank holiday with Clwyd 2020, the Feature County of the Royal Welsh Show in 2020 taking over for a weekend.

There was a wonderful start to the weekend with the Noson Lawen, with the hall full of locals there to be entertained by local artists. It truly was a wonderful evening with Cadi Mars Jones, Dafydd Jones, Elis Jones and Sion Eilir providing us with special performances including individual items, duets and trios. Cor Meibion Llangwm were also there presenting a varied programme, as well as Sian and Sian giving a very entertaining item from the ' President of the show '. Keeping them all in order and Compere for the evening was the comedian Dilwyn Pierce.

This was followed by the Clwyd 2020 Country Fair on Saturday and it was pleasing to have so many food and crafts stalls with local businesses and organisations supporting. It was the shearers ' time at 5 o'clock with a good crowd of shearers competing in the cattle ring with Guto Hughes taking it in the final. Many young people stayed on until the early hours with Mic ar y Meic playing classics over the decades and it was pleasing to see the young and the little older enjoying themselves!

The weekend finished on a high with the hall again full for a Sunday lunch for 180, with many travelling to taste the lunch of Clwyd produce.

Many thanks to all who supported us during the weekend.
