Barley Saturday

Originating in the 19th century Barley Saturday is still an important day in the farming calendar.  The day is named as the belief was that the harvest seed, particularly barley, had been sown by this day.  The uniqueness of the day has no doubt contributed to its enduring success.  Organisers have resisted pressure to change its original format and it is still increasing in popularity. 
2005 was a record breaking year as 80 stallions were on parade …as entries are still coming in organisers hope to smash their own record! 

The collection of vintage tractors, steam engines, cars and machinery is also growing year on year.

The event is patronised by the town mayor Cllr Catrin Miles and proceeds from street collections will be donated to various local charities.
Everything is in place for a fantastic day.  All that is needed now is some sunshine! 
The day is starting a little earlier this year as The Stallion Show will start at 11.30am in the Penralltddu field.

The Parade of Stallions will begin at 2pm.
