What people are saying about Cilcain Show


Terry Ellis. The candy man sweet stall would like to thank all our customers we had a good day we need more drinks for next year

Jane Elliot. Thank you we loved it

Strawberry Celebration. Amazing day at the Cilcain Show on Bank Holiday Monday - will be uploading all the beautiful photo's (facebook) over the weekend to share with you all xxx

Neil Finegan.  Just a quick note to say thank you for some excellent running events yesterday. As a club runner with Helsby, this event was highly recommended by the other members hence the turnout of 10 Helsby vests. Yesterday was my first time at this event and I can see why the others loved it - a superb course with a mixture of everything, well organised with plenty of marshals, and the support on the route (especially at the top) was brilliant. The support is really what set the race apart. Many summer shows have a race attached to them these days as it guarantees 100 plus runners and their families will attend. But yesterday the runners were made to feel really welcome and appreciated.

The junior race was brilliant too. I ran this with my 5 year old daughter who has said it is her favourite race ever.

Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved - it was greatly appreciated and I'll certainly be back next year

Kind regards, Neil.

Richard Hebden.   Many thanks to the people of Cilcain especially the organisers. It must go down as the best Show of the summer. Definitely go again and will get more involved in the dog show next year too. If you see me passing and need a chat give me a shout!!

Peter Jones. 29 August, another great show,really enjoyed it today

The Relish Club. Really good day at the Cilcain Show, Bev busy dancing with Dawnsyr Delyn hence her absence in this snap. Cilcain Cookies were a success as well as our normal range of chutneys. Guess the veg in our new product also proved a success with people being pleasantly surprised. Thank you to all of you who stopped and chatted, tasted and liked

Brian Nevin. Great race yesterday in Cilcain, much helped by the weather!


It was my first time at this event. I was drawing caricatures in my red gazebo. My first impression was that some one or a group of people new what they were doing. From help parking my car to some one showing me where I was going to pitch my stand. I thought these folk no how to run an event! I was informed that not every one had turned up, but that didn't stop the crowd filing in at the gate. In a word I'LL be back.

Thank you for a lovely day today! We really enjoyed ourselves and were so impressed by the organisation of the show and the beautiful village in which it took place. Well done to your and all your helpers. We would love to join you again next year!!

Many thanks and once more congratulations on a lovely day!  L.M.

The event was fantastic. Very well organised, with almost military precision. ( I'm dyslexic) From a disastrous Sunday yesterday more than made up for it. My thanks to every one who helped me from parking to showing me where to set up. Yes I would love to come back next year on to the main field again. It was my wife who spotted your booklet. W.C.

We had a wonderful day thank you, full credit to you & the team as it was so very well organised. Excellent contacts made & so many lovely dogs to meet too. We would definitely like to be involved next year & will happily donate some prizes again for the dog show.
Best wishes, S.F.

Just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for having Birling's at the Cilcain Show yesterday. It was the friendliest event I have done for a long time and business was brisk all day. In fact I sold out by the end of the afternoon which is always a good sign. As I mentioned, I would love to come back again next year and please do pass on my thanks to all involved with the organisation of the show. Many thanks and best wishes. D.S.



What a fabulous day for it! What a pleasure it was, such an inviting and friendly bunch of people (stall holders and visitors!). I sincerely hope I can return next year.

Many thanks, Lorna.

Just a short acknowledgement of your hard work today. Nice to encounter an event organiser who is on the ball early in the day and available for direction.

We were quite-to-very busy on our display through the day, what little of the show I saw was impressive and reflects hard work in planning. Raymond Rogers (RVHS)

Thanks so much for having us on Monday!!cherrie loved it, can we book in for next year please...warm regards.  Lisa Glitterbugz

Hi there. Thanks a lot for organising the Race so well. It was almost a pleasant experience.  Huw Parry

Hi I attended and thoroughly enjoyed the Cilcain Sow today as I do every year.  Many thanks. Sally Jones

Had a great time judging the Scarecrow Competition. So pleased to be asked and was treated so well. The entries were really great and varied which made the overall decision and placements all the more difficult. I hope I got it right. Well done to all who took part and to everyone who contributes to the organisation and success of the day. It is certainly a lovely way to spend the Bank Holiday, particularly, when the weather is as good as it was this year. I am sure you are already planning for next year. Good Luck!!

Thanks so much for having us on Monday!! Cherrie loved it, can we book in for next year please...warm regards,  Lisa Glitterbugz,

I just felt like I had to email to let you know what a fantastic day we had today at the Cilcain Show. This was the first year we have been having recently moved to Maeshafn and I must say you guys should rally give yourselves a pat on the back! The organisation was amazing and the thought gone into every single element was amazing.

We stayed all day until the end of the auction and just enjoyed every single bit.

We will look forward to next years show and may even take part in some of the many classes/ competions!!! Well done!!! Xxx.  Cat Smith

We came with two teenage kids and the in-laws both in there 70s. We enjoyed it and they thought it was excellent. The two lads who ran the slippery pole deserve a special mention as they were both very good with customers. Dave Shaw

Thanks for a well organised race - very much enjoyed. Andy Affleck
