Royal Welsh Sponsor Builth Wells Christmas lights
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 attracting some 240,000 people over the course of the four days and is supported by approximately 18,000 staunch members.
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.
