Membership

Members should have received an email detailing how to secure their tickets. If you have not heard from us please email membership@rhass.org.uk

You can apply to become a RHASS member by following this link - https://rhass.org.uk/members 

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.

 

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 Ticketmaster.

This year 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 membership@rhass.org.uk.

 

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.

Send an email to membership@rhass.org.uk with your name, membership number (if known),
address, postcode, telephone number and the name, membership numbers (if known), address and
postcode of the children.

We will then connect your details to the children’s details and you will then
be able to book their member access for the 2022 Show.

In order to manage capacity, we require all members as well as all members of the public to
purchase parking in advance via Ticketmaster. 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 have written to all RHASS members to let them know that
they need to book car parking in advance and also about how to book their days at the Show.

The general public will be made aware through advertising and when purchasing tickets.

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.

Big Top

The concerts will take place outside of the footprint of the Showground, in an area to the West, and will not impact on the traditional Show area. 

Animal welfare is our top priority, our staff team and directors all understand how to manage show livestock and have been fully engaged in the process. 

Our noise assessments will be carried out as normal and will comply with council regulations around noise pollution.  

The stage will face away from the livestock areas, and the use of both directional PA systems pushing sound into the crowd within the ‘Big Top’ as well as noise limitation through the structure itself – we do not anticipate much additional sound bleed. 

The concerts will take place outwith the main showground on the west side well away from all areas where livestock and horses are stabled penned or stalled.

The position of the stage will be facing west so all noise is travelling in the opposite direction to areas with animals. We can assure exhibitors that they will not be impacted by the addition of the concert, so they can continue to prepare for the Show as normal. 

The Big Top venue is external to the Royal Highland Show site and will be fully secured with fencing and have dedicated security in place. 

We have planned so that audiences from the two events will not cross over, so as to reduce congestion. Over the last number of years, we have made a concerted effort to encourage the use of public transport with the introduction of a robust traffic management plan. This will continue for 2022 and will extend to the traffic relating to the Big Top events

The Big Top events will take place throughout the month of June including the Royal Highland Show weekend.  We see this as enhancing the experience for our Show-goers, as those who wish to experience a big-name concert alongside the Show can now do so. People travel from far and wide to the Show, and it is for many their summer holiday. These concerts will give them an additional ‘into the night’ experience that has not been available in previous years. 

We will run the event to comply with Covid-19 guidance at the time. The footfall from the concerts will not impact on footfall within the Show areas as they are two separate events in different areas. Both are separate events and will be treated as such. 

RHASS is extremely grateful to members who donated to the Save Your Show campaign. We committed at the time that we would do everything possible to look at every potential income stream to secure the ongoing financial security of the charity in order to protect the Show – this is one way of achieving this aim. We are confident that the Big Top events will enhance, not detract from, the Show experience which will remain unaffected by this additional event.

The Royal Highland Show’s capacity is completely separate to the capacity of the Big Top, they are separate events and take place in different parts of the Royal Highland Centre.  

Members this year are being asked to register the days they are attending because of Covid restrictions and also, like any other large-scale event, for public safety.  

RHASS needs to understand how many people will be attending the site every day of the Show in order to be Covid compliant, ensuring there is enough space for people to enjoy the event and to make sure that security have an accurate idea of numbers of attendees and staff it accordingly.
