Fifty years at Llanelwedd

13 May 2013



The first Royal Welsh Show was held at Aberystwyth in 1904. After moving to 3'7 different venues throughout Wales it settled at Llanelwedd, Builth Wells, in 1963. This year marks the show's 50th anniversary on the permanent site and the book illustrated here charts in words and pictures its development and the transformation of the showground during the last half century into one of the finest of its kind in Europe.

A memorable record of some of the interesting highlights in the history of the show at Llanelwecld, the book will be available for purchase (price £7.99) at the Royal Welsh Show in July. Don’t miss the opportunity of obtaining a copy.
