Mr Harry Fetherstonhaugh, Honorary Show Director gave an outline of what is in store for the up-coming Royal Welsh Show, which will be opened by a respected Carmarthenshire businessman, David Gravell and Arwel Jones, Chair of Wales YFC.

“With Agriculture maintaining its place at the heart of the show, I am pleased to report that livestock entries and applications for agricultural tradestands have once again been very strong and I would like to thank all of the exhibitors and those within our own structure who work to make sure livestock continues to be a centre piece of our show.” said Mr Fetherstonhaugh “However, we are also in the entertainment business and our packed 12-hour main-ring programme has something for everyone.”

The big attractions in the main ring this year will be the incredible Lorenzo International Horse Display, the exciting and energetic performance from the Kangaroo Kid, the amazing RAF HAWKS Parachute Display Team, Black Mountains Falconry, Tristar Carriage Driving, Merion Owen and the Quack Pack, Inter Hunt Relay, trotting competitions and much more.

The 2017 Royal Welsh Show will take place at the showground in Llanelwedd on 24 - 27 July.
