  2. Royal Welsh Show cancelled for 2021

    The Royal Welsh Show - the biggest agricultural show in Europe - has been cancelled for the second year running because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

    The board met on Wednesday to discuss holding the show as scheduled in July, but after discussions with Welsh Government decided it wouldn't be feasible.

    Steve Hughson, chief executive of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, said: “We continue to work alongside the Welsh Government and Public Health Wales to create a road map for the safe re-opening of events.

    "Our events are central to the rural economy and way of life and mean so much to members, exhibitors, traders and visitors.

    "We fully understand the responsibility on all of us to ensure we deliver our events as soon as it is safe to do so."

    Mr Hughson said the society had provided free facilities for a Covid testing centre and a mass vaccination centre at its showground in Llanelwedd, Powys.
