On the 30th November and 1st December festive fun hit the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells with the arrival of the Royal Welsh Winter Fair, bringing the Christmas spirit to mid Wales.
Over 32,900 people braved the wind and rain to visit the event this year, yet again breaking the record for the largest attendance to the show over 2 days, a sure bet that this show will continue to get bigger and better over the coming years!
We were, once again, delighted to be able to attend and promote the quality Welsh produce grown in Pembrokeshire and Wales to visitors from all over the UK. This year we chose the theme of ‘Mrs Claus’ Kitchen’, as every family has a Mrs or Mr Claus who prepares their Christmas dinner lovingly on Christmas day.
With our potato oven bringing a warm glow to the stand, we gave away approximately 5,000 free samples of our Rudolph potatoes that were either baked, roasted with rosemary oil or bombay spiced.
Visitors to the stand also had the opportunity to enter our free prize draw, with first prize being a set of professional saucepans and runners up having the chance to win a pair of Cariad mugs, designed by Welsh potter Keith Brymer Jones.
On Monday we also had a special visitor to our stand, Mrs Claus just had to try some of our tasty Rudolph potatoes, which she thoroughly enjoyed!
With the festive season in full swing we look forward to next year’s Royal Welsh Winter Fair, where our quality Welsh produce can, once again, be on show!
