Even the sunshine has promised to visit this weekend’s Royal Welsh Spring Festival

13 May 2014

This weekend (17&18 May) an action-packed programme of competitions, family entertainment, information and attractions will once again be on offer at this year’s Royal Welsh Spring Festival - the number one event for smallholding, gardening and sustainable living.

Plans for the weekend-long event have come to fruition and even the weather seems to be looking forward to the festival with the forecast promising a warm and dry few days.

The good weather is sure to bring the visitors flocking to the showground in Llanelwedd and with the online ticket sales up by nearly 20% from last years show, we are ready for a busy and exciting weekend.

Amongst other things, festival goers will enjoy seeing a record number of 1,360 livestock entries in over 340 classes, including over 150 more goat entries than last year for the new back-to-back shows.

There has also been a massive increase in horse entries for this year’s working hunter and British Show Jumping Club classes. We’ve even had to provide extra arena to ensure all competitors get a chance to compete in the prestigious main ring.

This year’s attractions are also proving extremely popular with visitors eagerly awaiting the displays from the daring Kangaroo Kids, the skilful BASC Gun Dog Demonstration Team, and the speedy Scurry Driving races.

So don’t miss out… bring your sunhat, a camera, your family and friends and enjoy a perfect day out in beautiful mid-Wales.

Tickets can be purchased on the gate and cost £14 for adults, £5 for children (5-16yrs) and £35 for a family (two adults and four children). Parking is free for all visitors.
