Royal Welsh Show 23 – 26 July 2018

Entries Urgently Needed For Angora Goat and Fleece Classes

The Royal Welsh Show will open on Monday 23 July and closes on Thursday 26 July 2018 at the Royal Welsh Showground.

The Angora Goat and Fleece classes are scheduled for Monday 23 July 2018 and the judge for all classes is Mr John Taylor.

At the time of writing this RWAS had only received one entry to the Angora Goat classes. Although the entry date has passed the organisers have asked us to find more entries or the Goat and Fleece classes will be cancelled.

Once a show cancels classes it’s very difficult to persuade them to re-list them in the following and subsequent years.
