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 H & M Dog Display Team

Formed in 1984, the team has become one of the most popular dog displays in the country.

They have performed at hundreds of shows, ranging from small schools and charity events, right through to large shows. They have appeared several times on local television and live on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast and ‘It’s me or the Dog’. Their biggest accolade was being invited by the kennel club to perform at the world famous Crufts Dog Show, not once but five times!

You will see a variety of dogs of all breed, including rescue dogs, the most original fast moving display on the circuit, with non-stop entertainment.

Jez Avery Stunt Shows

Jez Avery’s stunt shows have thrilled audiences in all parts of the United Kingdom during the 2017 season and continues into the new season with new tricks and stunts.

Jez offers the display, with four different vehicles! The best bits of Jez Avery’s 30 years experience on the outdoor events circuit… an amazing show on four wheels, two wheels, one wheel and no wheels and the ROLLOVER QUAD!

The show includes wheelies, stoppies, two wheel driving, drifting, doughnuts and precision driving.

Jez performs all his own stunts while delivering his famous commentary keeping the whole family on the edge of their seats and laughing along.

Rock climbing and caving experience

Ever fancied experiencing the thrill of the climb or the exhilaration of caving? Then you’re in luck… you’ll be able to try your hand at both at the festival.

As a physical activity, climbing is in a class of its own! It’s a non‐contact sport that’s suitable for all ages and abilities, climbing builds mental concentration and is great for physical development and coordination.

The caving experience has a series of tunnels over 30m long, and is full of tight, twisted tunnels, sumps and chambers.

All activities are operated by professional, fully trained, qualified and DBS certified staff.

Biking obstacle course

Cycle skills sessions for children from 5 years upwards, each day from 10.00am ‐ 12.30 pm and 2.00pm ‐ 4.30pm.

The children will be given a bike and helmet and shown how to ride a variety of obstacles. The emphasis will be on having fun on a bike in a safe environment. All abilities welcome.

Children 8 years and under to be accompanied by an adult (they don’t have to ride – unless they want to!)
