Fonmon Castle, as a venue provides a proven high catchment area including Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, Swansea, Newport, Bridgend and the Valley's but also a large number of visitors from across the UK.

Excellence

For an event that is now in its 5th year, its success has been recognised by many national charities and traders from across the UK as being a 'must attend' event! There has been increased interest in the 2016 show already with many bookings confirmed.

From research carried out, we know that the event attracts a significant share of the family audience with 68% of visitors travelling as part of a family group and 26% of all visitors aged between 25-34 and 25% of visitors aged between 35 and 44.

We advertise is various dog and general magazines and newspapers. This form of advertising usually commences twelve weeks prior to the event and culminates with large, colour adverts in local newspapers on the Saturday prior to the event.
