The Royal Highland Show is urging visitors to snap up the few remaining tickets as demand soars for the event, which takes place next week from Thursday 23 til Sunday 26 June.

There are only a few hundred tickets remaining for the Friday and Saturday of the Show, which this year is celebrating 200 years since the very first Highland Show took place back in 1822 – and it'll be the first time in that 200 years that two days will sell out ahead of the event.

With huge demand for Friday and Saturday tickets, organisers said that the only way to guarantee entry now is to buy in advance. There are still car parking tickets available to purchase for every day of the Show.

Director of Operations at the RHS, Mark Currie, said: “We are delighted that Show goers are clearly as excited as we are about the return of Scotland’s biggest outdoor event. With Friday and Saturday looking like sell-out days, we’re encouraging people who might be holding off to book Friday or Saturday now, or to consider a Thursday or Sunday visit.

“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.”

Tickets, including for car parking, must be pre-purchased online this year and no tickets will be available to buy on the gate. The broadcast online is being funded by the Scottish Government.
