Builth Wells,

The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society was formed in 1904, and the first show was held in Aberystwyth in the same year.

The Society has come a long way since those early days and the Royal Welsh Show has become an important event in the Welsh calendar attracting some 230,000 people over the course of the four days and is supported by approximately 15,000 staunch members.
This success has allowed for the extensive development of the permanent showground at Llanelwedd, first used in 1963, which is set in the heart of the scenic Mid Wales countryside.
It is an ideal central location to stage its own three events, the Show, the Winter Fair and the Smallholder & Garden Festival, and offers a prime site for other clients.

There is an excellent selection of Exhibition Halls and Pavilions and it is a base for many businesses which are attracted to this important venue.
Nowadays, livestock entries number around 8000 and 20,000 cars a day plus hundreds of stock lorries and trailers converge on the showground in Mid Wales for the annual four-day event which has grown into the most popular agricultural show in Britain.
Today, the role of the modern Royal Welsh Show is a rounded one. As well as its principal function of showcasing the cream of Welsh livestock and the high quality food and drink produced in Wales, it encompasses the wider spectrum of farming and rural life and successfully bridges the gap between town and country. It provides something to interest everyone through its kaleidoscopic range of activities including forestry, horticulture, farriery, crafts, countryside sports, and a 12 hour programme of exciting entertainment that continues throughout each of the four days of the event.
