The Royal Welsh Show 2015 is on the horizon and will be kicking off in Llanelwedd on 20th – 23rd July 2015, with tens of thousands expected to attend over the four days it is in action. Visitors to this fantastic annual event can enjoy the cream of Welsh livestock, some of the finest produce from across Wales and an array of entertainment.
The event is a showcase for the finest farm animals, but the four-day event also offers horticulture, crafts, daredevil attractions, countryside sports and a sports village. It is a highlight for farming communities throughout Wales and focuses on Welsh agriculture, but there are a few things you need to know to get ready!
Firstly, the Royal Welsh Show will be held from Monday 20th July through to Thursday 23rd July 2015 in its usual location in Llanelwedd, Builth Wells. This has been the events permanent spot since 1963. If you plan to use a sat nav to navigate your way to the event, then here is the full address you will need to make you way there: Royal Welsh Showground, Llanelwedd, Builth Wells, Powys, LD2 3SY.
Buying tickets at events can always be a pain, with endless queues weaving their way in and out of the crowds, but this year the event is enabling you to book e-tickets in preparation for the week. Better yet, e-tickets will be offered at a discounted price.
Admission on the gate for adults will cost you £25 from Monday to Wednesday and £23 on the Thursday. However, if you book online you can save yourself time and money with tickets costing £23 for Monday through to Wednesday and £21 for Thursday. Children’s (5-16) tickets are £5 regardless of where you buy them; online or on the day, and children under four go free.
The highly anticipated part for many is, what will be there? Well, there is a whole arrangement of events, activities, stalls, music and much more at the event. The Metropolitan Police Mounted Branch Activity Ride is going to be headlining the entertainment in the main ring, demonstrating a high level of skill and agility from both the horse and officer.
There will also be performances from Bolddog Lings Freestyle Motorcross Team and Ye Olde Redtail Falconry Display, which will be run by Ray and Wendy Aliker. The first three days will also host a spectacular double aerial display from a Hawker Hurricane and Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
