Public Safety – Follow the Green Route

The Royal Welsh Show, and all engaged with associated events throughout the week, take the safety of all our patrons very seriously.  You are specifically asked to exercise care when travelling between the various venues including the Showground, Young Peoples Village, Penmaenau Farm and Builth Wells Town. 

In particular care should be taken to avoid the river and traffic on what can be a busy trunk road.  To facilitate safe travel between the various sites, a ‘Green Route’ has been established for those travelling on foot.  Please take time to study the route which will be clearly marked and make every effort to stick within it.  Your safe enjoyment of our events is our priority.
