The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society has played a leading role in the development of agriculture and the rural economy in Wales for over a century, since its formation in 1904.

Today our work includes providing support for business, social welfare and education in rural communities, and the organisation and staging of our ever-popular society events; the Smallholding and Countryside Festival, the Royal Welsh Show  and the Winter Fair.

We look forward to seeing you at next years Smallholding & Countryside Festival being held on the 21st & 22nd May 2022.

It’s only a matter of days now until the Showground in Llanelwedd will once again be full of visitors, exhibitors and superb livestock. The Society is looking forward to welcoming returning Winter Fair enthusiasts to the Royal Welsh Showground for its first major event since the 2019 Winter Fair.

This year it’s important to note that all tickets will need to be purchased before the event through our website and will not be available on the gate. Visitors attending the Winter Fair over the age of 18 will need to provide evidence of their NHS COVID Pass or a negative lateral flow test on arrival to comply with the current Coronavirus regulations in Wales. Due to the Welsh Government Track & Trace regulations we will not be able to offer the usual free entry after 4 pm on the Monday evening.

Extra measures are being put in place to ensure that everyone’s safety is a top priority when they are visiting the showground. We ask all visitors to please wear face coverings when inside any of our buildings, adhere to social distancing and one-way systems and regularly use our hand sanitizing points.
