Marks & Spencer are currently gearing towards the Royal Welsh Show where they will have a stand focusing on animal welfare and conservation. Young visitors to their stand will get the chance to get hands on and learn more about the importance of protecting Britain’s wildlife. There will be an observation bee hive and an active beetle bank. Children can get interactive with the M&S giant bee hotel while parents enjoy chef demonstrations and the chance to taste some of the produce on offer from local suppliers. There will be plenty of other activities on top of these, it really does sound as if it is going to be a great, fun and informative stand which will celebrate Food to Feel Good About.
What: M&S stand. When: 21st to 24th July. Where: Royal Welsh Show, Royal Welsh Showground, Llanelwedd, Builth Wells, Powys LD2 3SY.
