"the number one event for smallholding, gardening and sustainable living"
In looking forward to the 2012 Spring Festival, Chairman Dr Fred Slater said:

“As you can imagine it takes a great deal of work to put on this event but everyone concerned is excited and enthusiastic about their section in 2012 all endeavouring to give our visitors the best possible Festival experience. Although all aspects of the Festival may not yet be finalised it is clear that there will be something new and exciting around almost every corner of every section – just like the real countryside!”
This year we have decided to officially call the event The Royal Welsh Spring Festival with the strap-line“the number one event for smallholding, gardening and sustainable living”. In other words we will still be providing visitors with all they have come to expect from this May weekend but, without becoming too large, give visitors even more for their entrance fee.
We hope that this weekend will inspire at least some of you to become more involved in countryside skills whether bees, poultry, sheep, goats or gardening (to mention just a few) and to help you along we are providing a Getting Started trail with an information desk to guide you to the talk/demonstration/ advice that you need. There will be a “gardeners’ question time” corner in the Floral Hall and this year there will be an outdoor (but undercover) section adjacent to the main Hall to provide that little bit more for keen gardeners.
There will be new classes in several livestock sections including sheep, angora goats, pigs and cattle and if you missed the cattle parade in the main ring in 2011 then you missed what many thought to be one of the highlights of the event. In 2012 we will again have an exciting main ring programme from hawks to vintage machinery.
After the recent improvements made to the catering provision in the Montgomery Pavilion this venue will not only be providing seated catering for the Festival but will used as an extension to the ever popularGreen Horizons Sustainable Living Exhibition
We are told that the Spring Festival has one of the best displays of pig breeds that you will find at any UK show.
While at the event you must take in the premier open dog show and for the first time we hope to have maypole dancing on the village green.
