One of the benefits of RHASS membership is free entry to the Show. We will be putting in an earlier deadline this year to take out or renew membership ahead of the Show and we will publicise that date on our website. Any memberships bought ahead of that deadline will include access to the Show. Because of the particular requirements for the 2021 Show, including having a robust track and trace protocol, members will need to register for their tickets this year and let us know on what days they plan to attend. We will be in touch with members about this nearer the time.

Members will be given the opportunity to confirm what days they want to attend closer to the event via a new online portal. Members will need to confirm their days prior to the deadline (yet to be set), otherwise they will not be able to attend. We do recognise that this will be difficult for some but we ask that Members only book the days that they believe they will attend, as every member ticket booked but not used is a ticket that we cannot sell to the showgoing public.
Because of the track and trace requirements we will need to ask Members to register for tickets for their children and we will let you know more about this as soon as possible.

Members will still be able to purchase friends and family tickets for access to the Show but we may need to limit the number purchased. We will let you know about this as soon as possible. Members, can of course still purchase early bird tickets.
On guest badges - Members’ safety and comfort is our priority and we are working hard on our access and capacity protocols for the members’ area. We hope to be able to offer guest badges and will let members know about this as soon as possible.

Wristbands and Tickets will be via the normal exhibitor application process. However, additional wristbands may be limited this year, more information to follow closer to the event.

Livestock entries will go live in late March as usual.
Whether animal entries are going to be limited has not been confirmed yet. Any changes will be communicated over the coming months dependent on Scottish Government guidelines.

The timetable of livestock and equestrian events at the Show is reviewed each year and is dependent on a number of differing factors. At this stage, we are looking to deliver as similar a programme as possible to previous years and any significant changes will be communicated in good time.

Results of showing classes are displayed outside the Livestock Office on the first floor of the Highland Hall, on the Show website and this year on the RHS App as available.

Cattle will be on show within our Show Rings throughout the 4 days of the event but due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to publish Highland Hall access restriction times at this current moment.
Please refer to the Royal Highland Show App for exact timings closer to the event.

The trophy room is situated upstairs in the Highland Hall where trophies can be viewed and engraving takes place.

The application system for exhibitors will go live in January; keep an eye out for further information.
Exhibitors will be able to purchase tickets via the application process as normal once the exhibitor application system goes live in January.

The RHET Discovery Centre offers interactive sessions for children to participate in.
There are demonstrations at the Countryside Area and Forestry Arena, Livestock Parades and machinery trade stands we think children will love.

There are baby-changing facilities in most of the toilet facilities.
A baby care and feeding area is located at the Main Entrance to the Highland Hall, in the Scotland’s Larder Live cloakroom, in a portakabin situated next to the RHET Discovery Area and in the Members Area.

Cash machines will be located inside the Showground.
However, due to Covid-19 regulations, we encourage everyone to be as cashless as possible.
Please refer to the Royal Highland Show App for exact locations closer to the event.
