National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

25 July 2013

The Royal Welsh Show was in full-swing this week, and once again Wales YFC’s Young People’s Village has been entertaining the crowds of young farmers attending the event.

Nearly 15,000 young people headed to Builth Wells to attend one of the biggest events in the Wales YFC calendar which is celebrating its 23rd year this year.

The four day event kicked off on Sunday with a ‘Paddy’s Party’ and hosted some big names in the world of music and entertainment.

Monday night saw the return of the classic 90s pop groups S Club and S Club Juniors, the perfect acts for the ‘Nineties, Naughties and Onsies’ themed party. They were also joined by Welsh West-End star Sophie Evan.

Saturday night was the turn of Radio 1 DJ Greg James, making his fourth appearance at the event. And it looks like he’ll be making a welcome return in the future as after his gig he tweeted: “BEST crowd. See you next year!”.

Greg was also joined by star of The Voice UK, welsh rocker Ragsy who also took to twitter saying: “What an amazing crowd and event, thank you for your support.”

It was another Radio 1 DJ, Jameela Jamil, who rounded off the four-days of fun as she took to the decks on “The Big Wednesday.” Jameela is no stranger to Young Farmers having performed at this year’s NFYFC Annual Convention in Blackpool.

As well as the big names, the event also hosted up and coming local talent such as Welsh singer-songwriter Elin Fflur and Radio Cymru’s Breakthrough Act of the Year, Swnami.

Sioned Davies, Wales YFC’s Youth Forum Chairman said:

“This is the highlight of the YFC calendar and Wales YFC are always working hard to make it bigger and better each year. We think it is important to support local Welsh acts and to give them the opportunity to perform in front of thousands of people. We are also passionate about bringing well-known acts to the Village, ensuring that we are the best entertainment and camping site for young people during the Royal Welsh Show. We would also like to thank Harper Adams University for their continued support in sponsoring this event.”
