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.

The Society, in partnership with other key organisations will ensure that all sections of the show offer an experience to new comers, and bring back memories to those that would usually be spending a week-long celebration of agriculture in Llanelwedd.

The virtual show will not only offer a platform for partners to host seminars and live question and answer sessions, but will also concentrate on educating the general public about agriculture, Welsh produce and the environment. It will showcase a number of individuals who are experts in their field to encourage the uptake of a new skill or practice a new technique that will enable a traditional craft to live on for future generations.

We hope to welcome you all back onsite at the showground in Llanelwedd next year when the Royal Welsh Show will be held on the 19th – 22nd July 2021!

Along with an exciting four-days of livestock competitions, with entries travelling from far and wide to compete, the show has something to interest everyone through its wide range of activities including forestry, horticulture, crafts, countryside sports, shopping, food and drink and a 12-hour programme each day of exciting entertainment, attractions and displays.
