THE ROYAL WELSH SHOW 2017

Monday - Thursday, July 24-27
BBC One Wales, 7pm

Kate Humble presents a nightly round-up of highlights and events from the biggest agricultural show in Europe - The Royal Welsh Show 2017. She will be joined by farmer Gareth Wyn Jones, and a team of guest presenters including Cerys Matthews, Rachel de Thame of Gardener’s World, The Great British Menu’s Andi Oliver and comedian Omar Hamdi.

Kate will be looking at how the showground team looks after the thousands of animals who compete, from Welsh Black cattle to prize-winning guinea pigs, and how they keep over 200,000 visitors entertained over four days of competition.

Gareth will give the inside track on what it takes to be a champion at Llanelwedd,and will look at the future of farming in Wales - from trying out the high-tech equipment on show to meeting the next generation of farmers. He’ll also be having a go at a number of the show’s more unusual competitions.

Each day a different guest presenter will get involved in a special aspect of the show. Rachel will delve into the horticultural side of the event, swapping tips with vegetable and flower growers, while Andi will look at the food and drink on offer, meet local food producers and give her own unique twist on the classic Welsh oggie.

Cerys reveals her passion for horses and also looks into the family fun on offer at the site. It’s the first time at the Royal Welsh for Omar - as a comedian used to working at night, he’s keen to find out what happens there when the sun goes down!

From behind-the-scenes coverage to the best from around the showground, Kate and the team has this year’s event covered.
