Country Smallholding will be at the Spring Festival in Wales

Country Smallholding will have a major presence at the Royal Welsh Spring Festival at Builth Wells on May 20-21. In addition to our stand, we will be hosting Speakers’ Corner in the Smallholding Centre.

The fantastic weekend-long celebration of smallholding and rural life offers an action-packed programme of entertainment, have-a-go educational activities, talks, workshops, displays and performances. With more than 1,300 livestock and horses on display, hundreds of trade stands, the only Premier Open Dog Show held in Wales, children’s activities, a food and drink quarter, the Royal Welsh Trail Running Festival, vintage machinery, gardening, auction, country leisure and much more, the event has something for everyone. Speakers’ Corner will be compered by CS writer Kim Stoddart.
