The Royal Welsh Show is an annual trade show aimed at the general public and professionals in agriculture that takes place at the Llanelwedd grounds every single July. It recently celebrated 100 editions and within that time has grown from a small local event into the big community building show that it is today. The show was first staged in 1904, which was also the year of foundation of the Royal Welsh Agriculture Society. The Royal Welsh Show performs several important roles for the area – it gives opportunities for local communities to get together, a chance for local economy to pick up and drives tourism to the area as the show now draws in more and more visitors from outside Wales.
