The Smallholding and Countryside Festival is a weekend-long event, with smallholders and those who have a love of the outdoors at its heart.

With an emphasis on celebrating smallholding and rural life, the festival will be packed full of interesting things to see, delicious food and drink, live music, country sports, shopping, demonstrations, fun, educational activities and many different types of livestock, horses and other animals taking part in a busy two-day schedule of competitions and displays.

It is with deep regret that due to the deteriorating situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, after taking careful account of the latest Government and Public Health guidance, have announced the cancellation of events scheduled during May and June, resulting in the cancellation of the Smallholding & Countryside Festival 2020. 

The Society appreciates that this will cause inconvenience for all concerned and encourage those with urgent questions or queries to contact us via, requests@rwas.co.uk
