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.

As one of the finest prime stock shows in Europe, the Winter Fair draws crowds from far and wide to enjoy two-days packed full of competitions, festivities and Christmas shopping.

Along with the usual packed schedule of competitions, exhibitions and displays the Winter Fair also offers the discerning shopper the perfect opportunity to pick up some unique and original Christmas gifts.

The food hall will be packed full of the very best Welsh producers showcasing their produce and tempting visitors to try the wide variety of culinary delights on offer.

The fair will be open until 8pm on the Monday evening for late night Christmas shopping and fireworks display, with visitors able to enjoy looking around, listening to the live choirs and bands, and maybe evening bumping into Father Christmas.
