Tickets are now on sale for the Royal Welsh Winter Fair which is being held on November 27 and 28.

The annual event, organised by the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society (RWAS), is just around the corner, and it won’t be long until the showground in Llanelwedd is again bustling with prize-winning livestock and Christmas shoppers.

As one of Europe’s finest prime stock shows, the winter fair draws crowds from far and wide to enjoy two days packed full of competitions, festivities, food and drink, and shopping.

As well as livestock competitions, the event hosts a huge variety of classes and demonstrations, including equine, the hound show, dressed poultry, butchery, meat hampers, cookery, produce and handicraft, horticulture and floral art. There’s something for everyone to be involved in.

The winter fair offers shoppers the perfect opportunity to pick up unique Christmas gifts from the variety of trade stands available, including homeware, clothing, arts and crafts, jewellery, toys, pet supplies and much more.

Visitors can really get into the festive spirit as they warm up with a mulled wine and listen to carol singers performing throughout the showground. Santa will even be in his grotto for the children to visit!

Everyone’s favourite place, the renowned Food Hall, showcases producers from across Wales and is packed full of culinary delights, demonstrations, perfect gifts, and tempting tasters.

The winter fair opens its gates to the public at 8am each morning and, on Monday, November 27, trade stands stay open through the evening for late-night Christmas shopping.
