Royal Wedding Celebrations at the Spring Festival

24 April 2018

Believe it or not, on the weekend of 19 & 20 May the Royal Welsh Spring Festival will not be the only Royal celebration going on...

However, for those of you who don’t receive an invite to Harry and Meghan’s wedding, there will be plenty of Royal wedding celebrations at the festival on Saturday 19 May, for everyone to get involved in.

Not only will we have TV screens dotted around the festival site so you don’t miss out on any of the royal wedding action, we will also be holding some fun wedding themed competitions for all the family to get involved in.

Best Dressed Royal Welsh Prince and Princess

We are encouraging all children to get creative and come along to the festival on Saturday 19 May dressed as a prince or princess, where they will all be invited to join in the party games and the ‘best dressed’ judging in the bandstand at 2pm.

There will be a special prize for the best dressed boy and girl, including a coronation ceremony to receive a crown and tiara and be officially announced as the official Royal Welsh Spring Festival King and Queen for the rest of the day.

All participating children will take away a Royal Welsh wedding party-bag.

Most eye-catching wedding headwear

But that’s not all, the grown-ups can join in too!

At the same party, (in the bandstand at 2pm) we will be awarding special prizes to the adults wearing the best wedding headwear. So dust off your top hats and fascinators and join in with the wedding fun!

Well behaved, and participating grown-ups, will receive a special Royal Welsh wedding favour to take home.

“The impending Royal Wedding was always going to clash with something, and we are feeling very privileged that the happy couple have chosen the prestigious Royal Welsh Spring Festival weekend to hold their nuptials.” says Kay Spencer, Spring Festival Honorary Director.

“It is obviously a very popular weekend with lots to look forward to, and we are embracing the Royal wedding celebrations into the Spring Festival plans.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming well-dressed grown-ups and many Royal Welsh Princes and Princesses to our wedding party in the bandstand on Saturday 19 May, at 2pm.”

The Royal Welsh Spring Festival is a fantastic weekend-long celebration of smallholding and rural life, packed full of interesting things to see, delicious food and drink, live music, country sports, livestock, shopping, demonstrations and fun, have-a-go activities, the festival promises to be the perfect day out for all.
