On the 26th February 1904, a gathering of influential landowners came together to form the Welsh National Agricultural Society – an organisation that would later become the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society.

The meeting to form the Society took place at Committee Room 12 at the House of Commons.

120 years to the day later, this event will celebrate the history of the Society and how it has grown to host one of the largest agricultural shows in Europe.

Curators from the National Library of Wales will have a selection of archive material relating to that very first meeting, followed by short talks on the past, present and future of the RWAS.
