THE Royal Welsh Show is less than a month away and one Builth Wells pub is bringing out the big guns for the event’s much anticipated return.

The White Horse has been renowned for putting on some dazzling entertainment over Show Week in recent years and, with the return of the popular summer event following a two-year hiatus because of coronavirus, landlord Rory Owen has delved into his little black book to order up a concoction of celebrities to mark the show’s big return.

The Only Way Is Essex star Pete Wicks returns to the White Horse having attended a previous Royal Welsh week, while on Sunday they announced that Chloe Ferry, of Geordie Shore and Celebs Go Dating fame, is also set to appear.

The White Horse revealed their star-studded line-up for the four-day event in a series of posts over recent days, with Wicks posting a video on social media announcing he would be back in Builth after having an “amazing” time at the show when he attended back in 2019.

“Guys, I am coming to Builth Wells, to the White Horse, on July 19 so make sure you come down and have a few drinks,” he said, in a video the pub posted on its Facebook page.

“Last time I was there it was amazing, I cannot wait to see you all again.”

The pub itself said of Wicks’ return: “One for the TOWIE and Celebs Go Dating fans. Pete Wicks will be here for his second appearance for this year’s Royal Welsh Show.

“Last time he went crowd surfing, what will this year bring?”

Wicks will be at the pub on the Tuesday night of Show Week, with Ferry in attendance the following night, Wednesday, July 20, traditionally the last big night out of the week.

The pub has plenty of other acts lined up throughout the week to keep the crowds entertained, with Ian Davies spinning the decks as the pub’s resident DJ for the week. This will be his seventh Royal Welsh at the White Horse.

DJ James Bramhall will be in support, appearing for the first time, as is DJ Blighty, who’ll be performing on Wednesday, while Lawrence James returns having been here before.

SwitchDisco, referred to as “the UK’s No1 mashup DJ duo”, will be performing on Sunday and Monday, July 17-18, with Jordan Reed, of MTV’s The Valleys fame, back again and performing on Tuesday night. There will be free entry for all events.

The Royal Welsh show runs from Monday to Thursday, July 18-21.
