First staged in 1990 and originally just a modest one-day event, the Royal Welsh Winter Fair is now widely referred to as the finest prime stock show in Europe and has become well established as one of the most popular attractions on the British agricultural show calendar.
With over 1,300 cattle, sheep, pigs and horses as well as over 180 entries in the lamb carcass classes and over £25,000 in prize money on offer, the stakes are set for a great couple of day’s worth of competitions.
The opening ceremony will be held upstairs in the International Pavilion at 10.30am on Monday 27 November.
Following the official opening will be the presentations of the John Gittins Memorial Award 2017, the RWAS Oxford Farming Conference Bursary 2018, the 2017 RWAS/Nuffield Farming Scholarship Award and the Children’s Art and Design Competition (the winner of the 2017 Christmas card design).
Along with the usual packed schedule of competitions, classes, exhibitions and displays the two-day event will be packed full of festive celebrations including free late night shopping and a fireworks display on the Monday evening.
Away from the judging rings the very best Welsh food producers showcase their produce and Christmas shoppers will be able to explore hundreds of tradestands, demonstrations, exhibitions and displays.
