The annual Royal Welsh Spring Festival promises to deliver another jam-packed programme of livestock competitions and displays, interactive workshops and expert demonstrations for the whole family to enjoy.
From the Premier Open Dog Show, to the Cattle Breed Society competition. Competitors will be putting their best foot, hoof and paw forward to win the hotly contested best in show. The festival also offers visitors the chance to have their agricultural questions answered by some of the best in the business; head down to the Smallholders Centre for talks, workshops and advice from experts at the ‘getting started’ stand.
Of course, no Royal Welsh show would be complete without a delicious selection of locally sourced food and drink for you to eat on the day or to take home! The food hall will be showcasing the very best of what Wales has to offer, including the ever-popular street food area, complete with fantastic live music to get you in the festival spirit!
