Royal Welsh Show £200,000 profit after visitor record

Record numbers basked in the sunshine at the Royal Welsh Showground last summer.

The Royal Welsh Show posted a profit of £209,247 last year, after record visitor figures.

241,099 came through the gates at Llanelwedd, in Powys, over four days in July 2012.

The show has been consistently profitable in recent years, after making a £170,000 loss in a weather-hit 2007.

The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society said its smaller Spring Festival and Winter Fair also both posted profits.
