You can apply to become a RHASS member by following this link - https://rhass.org.uk/members
Sadly the deadline to become a member for this years show has passed and will re open in july
Membership of RHASS, the Scottish charity behind the Show, conveys a number of benefits. As well as supporting RHASS’s charitable remit to support Scottish agriculture, members also get free entry to the Show, three copies of Society magazine every year and a number of other benefits including reduced costs on hotel stays and airport parking near the Showground. Members also get an exclusive discount off of Hoggs and Fife Clothing too!
Provided we have your up-to-date email address, you should have received an email with a link to reserve your day tickets to RHS
Once you have booked your days at the Show, your Members badge will arrive by post.
Friends and Family tickets and parking will be via email from our ticket vendor.
We are asking all our members to let us know on which days they would like to attend the Show. All members are able to come on all four days and if you need to retain flexibility as to which days you will attend, please do book for all four days.
We would appreciate that, if you decide later you are not coming on all four days, you let us know by sending an email in advance to email@example.com.
For public safety reasons, we have set a daily capacity this year. Members will have priority to attend the Show, however if members are unable to come on a given day or days, then it would be of benefit to the Society to sell an additional ticket to a member of the public and thereby raise further charitable funds to support others.
This process will be through our ticket vendor - instructions will be sent by membership teams
In order to manage capacity, we require all members as well as all members of the public to purchase parking in advance via Universe. In the current landscape this enables us to plan resources appropriately.
Limited overnight parking will be available for purchasers of 2 and 4-day tickets. Please ensure your pass is properly displayed at all times as checks will be undertaken. Please see terms and conditions on the back of the tickets and displayed in car parks.
We used this approach in 2022 which worked very well and plan to take this forward. We will also be communicating through press, media, social channels, website and emails.
All parking must be booked in advance.
As always with the Royal Highland Show and any other large events at the Royal Highland Showground, RHASS works closely with partners including Police
Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council on traffic plans and contingencies.
