Invitation to my forth coming exhibition at Oriel Q.
The official opening is on MONDAY 5TH AUGUST @ 6PM.
Everybody is welcome and I hope to see you there!
The show began back in 1871, and so called after Barley, being traditionally the last crop to be sown after Wheat and Oats.
The fair had a dual purpose, the first being a half yearly event of the hiring of farm workers, and the other was to show the stallion horses at their best for the bookings to be taken for the covering of mares in the area.
During the War years the fair was disbanded, but re-established back in 1961.
