The Royal Welsh Show is open virtually for the second year in a row, showcasing the best within Welsh agriculture. The Royal Welsh Show will be held online from 19 – 22 July 2022. The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society would like to welcome you to the Virtual Royal Welsh Show, taking place over the show’s original dates, starting on the morning of Monday 19th July until Thursday 22nd July 2021.
Today the Royal Welsh Show opened the 2021 Virtual show with an opening Ceremony lead from the Chair of Council David Lewis. In his opening speech he discussed the changes that everyone has had to make during the pandemic and the show’s move to an online platform, and how this year’s show will build on what was offered during the 2020 virtual show.
The virtual show will host seminars and live question and answer sessions, but will also concentrate on educating the general public about agriculture, Welsh produce and the environment. It will showcase a number of individuals who are experts in their field to encourage the uptake of a new skill or practice a new technique that will enable a traditional craft to live on for future generations. The Society, in partnership with other key organisations will ensure that all sections of the show offer an experience to newcomers, and bring back memories to those that would usually be spending a week-long celebration of agriculture in Llanelwedd. A new aspect to this year's show has been a competition element to get the next generation involved in activities from a Young Handlers class to Decorating Biscuits.
