The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society is delighted to announce that the livestock and equine competition entries for the 2022 Royal Welsh Show will officially open on Wednesday 30th March at 10am, and schedules are now available to view on the RWAS website.

The highly anticipated Royal Welsh Show will return this year after a two-year break due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Competitors, trade exhibitors and visitors alike are all thrilled to be returning to the Showground in Llanelwedd from 18th – 21st July this year.

Exhibitors will be able to enter the competitions via the new online entry system. The Society is excited to be launching the new system and can assure you that the online entry process will offer exhibitors ease of use, secure payment and total convenience. We are keen to make our entry system a smoother and more efficient experience, and to make entries much easier for all our exhibitors whilst reducing our paper trail and reliance on the postal system.

As always, the full schedule of classes and special awards for cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and horses are due to attract entries from far and wide. In previous years we have seen around 8,000 entries coming from across Wales, the UK and beyond, and we hope that our exhibitors are eager to be competing once again.

We look forward to receiving your entries and to welcoming you back to the Royal Welsh Show this July to enjoy the very best Wales has to offer with a full Show Programme.
