If you are looking to add to your ‘to dos’ this year then why not also consider the brilliant and much loved Spring Festival, for smallholders, gardening enthusiasts and those interested in a sustainable way of living. The Spring Festival is hosted at the Royal Welsh Showground in May every year.
The Festival includes classes for livestock, many of them for rare breeds, workshops for sustainable living and to brush up on your gardening skills, folk dancing displays and a dog show. There is also a wonderful hall dedicated to flowers and plants, which is a treat for the senses. In the main ring there are many displays including falconry, sheep dog trials and exhilarating scurry driving. There are also a host of fantastic craft exhibits, with beautiful products for your home, garden and lifestyle. It is a firm family favourite and a great way to spend a weekend in beautiful mid Wales.
Fforest Fields is four miles from the showground and makes a perfect base for a visit to the Royal Welsh Show Spring Festival. With plenty to do on the farm and in the surrounding area, alongside the fun of the event at the Showground in Llanellwedd, this could be just the break in the countryside you are looking for!
