The 2014 Royal season is just around the corner, with only a few weeks to go until its November 8th launch. We are now officially open for our annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair special edition.

This year’s mini special is going to be a bit different from previous years, as we want to try something completely new! We’re going to give readers a feast for the senses, with a focus on photos and videos over the written word. We want to bring the Royal to life on your computer screen with some great multimedia content.
