For the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic, one of the biggest agricultural events in Britain, the Royal Welsh Show is returning to Llanelwedd for an exciting week of livestock competitions, attractions and displays from Monday 18th until Thursday 21st July.

Each day of the event is jam-packed with a 12-hour programme of activities for the whole family to enjoy. From forestry, horticulture and countryside sports to arts and crafts.

There will be a delicious range of locally sourced food and drink available in the Food Hall, which is open each day of the event.

Whether you want to try some locally distilled gin, local Welsh cheeses, homemade baked goods, or some carefully crafted sweet treats. This is a must-visit attraction of the show!
