Over the 29th and 30th of November 2021, the showground at Llanelwedd welcomed crowds from all over once again after a tumultuous couple of years for the Royal Welsh Winter Fair. With competitions, festivities and plenty of Christmas shopping opportunities, each day is also packed with 12 hours of entertainment, attractions and displays.
As one of the highlights of prime stock events in Europe, this year’s Winter Fair saw the usual proceedings for its first time back since 2019. Hybu Cig Cymru were promoting sustainability at their stand, and how consumers can trust Welsh beef, lamb and pork in terms of climate-friendly food purchases. With sensible precautions taken, producers enjoyed a busy couple of days and relished the opportunity to meet customers again and present some of the finest cuisine from across the country.
The CEO of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, Steve Houghton described the Fair as celebrating “...everything that’s best in Wales...You can meet friends, have a chat with the politicians that are making the decisions, and you can influence change.”
