The Society

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.

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.
