Are you joining us on the Showground in Llanelwedd for the 2021 Royal Welsh Winter Fair on the 29th & 30th November? The Society are looking forward to welcoming returning Winter Fair enthusiasts to the Royal Welsh Showground for its first major event since the 2019 Winter Fair.

It won’t be long until the showground is once again full of exhibitors, prize-winning livestock and Christmas shoppers as preparations for the annual Royal Welsh Winter Fair are in full swing. Extra safety measures are being put in place to ensure that everyone’s safety is a top priority when they are visiting the showground.

As one of the finest prime stock shows in Europe, the Winter Fair draws crowds from far and wide to enjoy two-days packed full of competitions, festivities and Christmas shopping.

Along with the usual packed schedule of competitions, classes, exhibitions and displays the Winter Fair offers the discerning shopper the perfect opportunity to pick up some unique and original Christmas gifts from the hundreds of tradestands spread out across the showground during the two-day show. Visitors will be able to enjoy looking around the demonstrations and exhibitions, listening to carols and bands performing throughout the showground.

We have had a tremendous response from our exhibitors and traders who are looking forward to set foot back onto the Showground in November. The Society are also looking forward to what is set to be a fantastic two-day event full of festivities in the lead up the Christmas.

The fair will be opening its doors to the public at 8am every morning and on the Monday evening tradestands will be open through the evening for late night Christmas shopping and see the return of a great fireworks display. Due to the Welsh Government Track & Trace regulations we will not be able to offer free entry after 4.00pm on the Monday evening.

All tickets will need to be purchased before the event through our website for the 2021 Winter Fair in order to comply with the current Coronavirus regulations.
