Royal Welsh Winter Fair will still light up the night sky, with fireworks!

26 November 2015

With less than a week to go until the showground in Llanelwedd is full of visitors, livestock, and tradestands, all the last minute preparations for the Royal Welsh Winter Fair are being put into place.

Being held next Monday and Tuesday (30 November and 1 December) the Winter Fair has a packed schedule of competitions, classes, exhibitions and displays over the two-days, and visitors will be able to enjoy the all the festive celebrations and the free late night Christmas shopping evening on the Monday.

However, as always, we are ruled by Mother Nature, and the windy weather forecast for Monday has meant that we are no longer able to have the hot-air balloon nightglow display.

But don’t be too disappointed, instead, and back by popular demand, we have arranged for another amazing firework display for the Monday evening at 6.30pm.

And that’s not all, along with the chance to get your Christmas shopping done with the mouth-watering stalls in the food hall and farmers market and the hundreds of tradestands, including the extra shopping pavilion in the members centre, there will also be local school and community choirs, famous singers; Gwawr Edwards and Trystan Llyr Griffiths, brass bands and of course, Father Christmas at the fair to get everyone in the festive spirit.


Winter Fair Honorary Director, Will Hanks says: “The balloon glow was always weather dependent and unfortunately the forecasted windy weather has meant that it cannot go ahead.

“However, we are delighted to offer our visitors another chance to see a fantastic fireworks display at 6.30pm on Monday night instead.

“The fair will be open till 7.30pm on Monday, and with more stands than ever before, there will be plenty of time and opportunity for everyone to take advantage of the late night Christmas shopping.

“The showground is really starting to look Christmassy with vastly improved Christmas lighting and some impressive looking Christmas trees. It’s getting very exciting and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you all to another great Winter Fair.”
