Plans for the pinnacle event in the British agricultural calendar, the Royal Welsh Show, are well underway. The four-day spectacle will be held on 24- 27 July at the showground in Llanelwedd.
Every year, the livestock classes attract over 7,000 entries from far and wide promising a popular and exciting four-day’s of competitions.
In addition to the fantastic livestock, the great shopping and the free parking, the show provides something to interest everyone through its wide range of activities including forestry, horticulture, crafts, countryside sports, food and drink and a 12-hour programme each day of exciting entertainment, attractions and displays.
The big attractions in the main ring this year will be the incredible Lorenzo International Horse Display. Known as the ‘The Flying Frenchman’, Lorenzo’s performances are truly unique. Watch in amazement as he is able to skilfully and single-handedly take four pairs of horses – one behind the other – over a set of jumps at full gallop, whilst standing on their backs!
You will also be able to see the exciting and energetic display from the Kangaroo Kid. This extreme stunt show performed on quad bikes thrills the audience with daring tricks, amazing wheelies and spectacular jumps. Using a radio microphone in his helmet, spectators are treated to a witty running commentary throughout the display with plenty of opportunities to get involved with this unique and impressive demonstration of skill and plucky stunts.
Joining us for the first time will be the amazing RAF HAWKS Display Team. All taking time out of their busy active duties in the RAF, the team will be flying from Swansea to jump into the main ring on the first three days of the show. Once landed, you will be welcomed into the ring to meet the team and discuss their display and roles in the RAF.
Returning to entertain the crowds will be the spectacular Black Mountains Falconry, Tristar Carriage Driving, Merion Owen and the Quack Pack, Inter Hunt Relay, trotting competitions and much more.
Visitors to the show will once again be able to make full use of the Royal Welsh Show App which will include a full timetable of events, competitions, results, information on local traffic and weather. The App will be available to download free from the iTunes Store and Google Play in July.
