ORGANISERS have been overwhelmed by the demand for tickets for this year’s Royal Highland Show following two years of a ‘no show’ due to the pandemic.

The annual event which showcases the best of food, farming and rural life takes place over four days (June 23-26) at Ingliston in Edinburgh.

The 50,000 per day ticket allocation for Friday and Saturday has already been snapped up before the Show’s bicentenary event this coming weekend.

Tickets are now only available for Thursday June 23 and Sunday June 26.

Tickets, including for car parking, must be pre-purchased online this year and no tickets will be available to buy on the gate.

The Show will be broadcast online this year via RHS TV, funded by the Scottish Government. For further information and to purchase tickets please visit

Mark Currie, Director of Operations at the Royal Highland Show, said:  “While some music events still have capacity, the Royal Highland Show is nearing sell-out with tickets only now available for Thursday and Sunday… and these dates are also selling fast.

“It seems the combination of farmyard animals, award-winning food and giant tractors is more compelling than the thrill of some chart-topping artists! As the schools begin to break up, families are looking for a great value day out and our offer of children attending for free makes a big difference.

“If for any reason you can’t attend this year, luckily you can still catch the action through RHS TV - it will be broadcast live from the Showground over the four days and available to watch for free on the Royal Highland Show website.”
