Film: 'Sioe Amaethyddol Frenhinol Cymru' (1954)

Black and white silent movie of the 1954 Royal Welsh Agricultural Show held by the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales.

Film of the Royal Welsh Show of 1954, which took place in Machynlleth, where heavy rainfall ensured that the showground was as memorable for the mud and its intrepid show-goers as for the horses, cattle and stands (e.g. banks, shaving booth, rug-making, ice-cream). Six clips from the film are shown here.
