The event will relaunch food at the Highland, build interactivity and visitor engagement and bring to life the consumer message that ‘farming equals food’.
The Cookery Theatre will have a theatrical element, with chefs being challenged to whip up a dish against the clock. Tastings and talks will feature some of our finest producers and plenty of audience engagement and participation. Follow the clues around the event and enter the Scotland’s Larder Live! competition to win a selection of goodies from some of Scotland’s top producers.
2015 will be the second year of the Show’s industry leading Food Charter, an initiative that sees on-site caterers and the show’s other food partners use, where possible, only ingredients that are locally produced and ethically sourced. Only a small number of companies from 2014 have not make the grade, demonstrating the show already serves to showgoers a huge number of responsibly sourced Scottish produce.
The loveliest of livestock
The Royal Highland’s big attraction is without doubt the livestock, with more than 5,000 of the finest cattle, sheep, goats, horses and poultry, heading for the showground over the four-day event. However, there will be other furry friends entertaining and enticing showgoers over the 4 days of the Show, including Elite Falconry, the Sealpin Gundogs and Fife Foxhounds, who can all be found in the Countryside Area.
The Royal Highland Show, this summer’s moo-hoosive event, takes place at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh from Thursday, June 18 to Sunday, June 21.
