Organisers of the first Royal Welsh Virtual Show have been blown away by the level of support.

The wide range of talks and discussions was extremely well received with over 50,000 visitors from 44 countries visiting the virtual show.

"We have been blown away by the level of support from our sponsors and contributors, without whom we could not have put our first virtual show together," said a spokeswoman for the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society.

"Our various panels and discussions were filled with the most knowledgeable people within the agricultural and rural community.

"This event has given many who attended new skill sets, increased knowledge and an improved sense of awareness of a wide range of differing topics. This virtual show has also given regular show attendees the chance to attend events they would not usually get the chance to see, from the comfort of their own homes."

John T Davies, chair of the board of directors, said: “Although this year’s show could not go ahead I am pleased the team here at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society pulled together to deliver our first virtual show.

Nothing will replace the buzz and the very special atmosphere of ‘Sioe y Bobl’ at Llanelwedd every July and we look forward to next year’s show bouncing back stronger than ever.”

The show opened with Hybu Cig Cymru's Virtual Breakfast with Welsh rural affairs minister Lesley Griffiths and was followed by the official virtual opening ceremony with Prince Charles

Over the following days a huge range of discussions and seminars were streamed including Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford.

There was also a variety of lighter-weight entertainment, from the quad bike antics of the Kangaroo Kid to a tug-of-war and video highlights from previous years.

The Young Farmers section was busy as usual bringing the show to your sofa ­— and it's still there. Go see it at!
