THE 21st Royal Welsh Winter Fair will take place on November 29 and 30, at the Showground near Builth Wells.

Thousands of people are expected to turn out and with last year seeing the attendance figures reach over 26,000, organisers will be hoping for a similar turnout.

The primestock show highlights the best of British farming and produce, and includes the judging and sale of cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, poultry, hounds and lamb carcass. It culminates in the benchmark auctions, where the results are eagerly awaited.

The Food Hall which showcases the best Welsh produce on the market, will again include award winning producers in 2010. A visit is a must, with many unique Christmas gift ideas that have a special Welsh flavour.

The Gift Hall in the Goat Building will house many stands offering a wide range of gift items, including gold and silver jewellery, beaded jackets, handmade shoes and slippers, antiques, hand-made cards, bespoke furniture, books, wooden toys, Welsh blankets, hand crafted flowers, die cast toys, ceramics, hand spun fibres, cotton shirts, ladies knitwear and eco friendly jute bags, ideal for Christmas gifts.

There will also be demonstrations at the International Pavilion over the two days, including a flower arranging demonstration, and a cake icing demonstration .

The Produce and Handicraft and Floral Art shows have been relocated to the Clwyd Glamorgan Hall for 2010. There will be over a 1,000 wonderful exhibits on view with stewards present to answer your questions on the choice of crafts on display.

Santa will be making an appearance in his Grotto located in the Clock Tower, Ty Ynys Môn courtesy of RWAS and The National Trust.

Whether you enjoy the exciting atmosphere of the judging and auctions in the Exhibition Hall, or the comprehensive display of horses in their marquee, there is a variety and an attractions for all the family.

Parking will be available on the showground and there are plenty of catering outlets to suit your requirements.
