Royal Welsh Show
The Royal Welsh Show celebrates all aspects of farming and rural life, but it’s not all about work! The event offers a great day out for the very best of Welsh produce, flowers, crafts, country pursuits and arena displays. The role of the modern Royal Welsh Show is a rounded one. As well as its principal function of showcasing the cream of Welsh livestock and the high-quality food and drink produced in Wales, it encompasses the wider spectrum of farming and rural life and successfully bridges the gap between town and country
Barely bigger than a village but with all the personality of a market town, Hay-on-Wye, world-famous for its book shops, is a pleasant place to wander and discover.
In the 1960s, a young man, Richard Booth, bought Hay castle and declared the town an independent state with him as king. With his cardboard crown, and a sceptre made from a ballcock, he set out to put the town on the map. Improbably, he succeeded. He made it world famous as ‘the town of books’.
Today Hay-on-Wye is friendly, lively and vibrant and, unsurprisingly for a town with such individuality and literary associations, and is twinned with Timbuktu, which itself has the oldest Islamic library in the world.
