Dennis the Menace

By ALEXANDER LAWRIE

TICKETS for this year’s Royal Highland Show went on sale yesterday – with a little help from children’s favourite Dennis the Menace.

The popular tourist attraction regularly draws crowds of up to 160,000 people and organisers have promised this year’s event will be the biggest show ever.

The four day event showcases the very best of Scottish entertainment, outdoor living countryside and, of course, farmyard livestock.

And this year will see a special Homecoming appearance from the Brit Award-winning Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.

Nearly 5,000 animals, including horses, sheep and cattle, will be on show, and Border Common Ridings will be present to demonstrate the traditional skills of farriery, stick-making and basket weaving.

Dennis and his creators will be in town to hold a special comic workshop for the kids.

RHS always entertaining

Show Manager David Dunsmuir said: “The links between rural and urban Scotland have never been stronger.

“The drive to eat healthier, enjoy our great countryside and support local Scottish businesses has meant the show has developed into much more than simply the UK’s best agricultural show – it’s a place where the visitor gets to experience rural Scotland at its best – thriving, vibrant and always entertaining.

“It gives people of all ages the chance to learn more about their countryside, to get up close to animals such as cattle and horses and taste food grown on their doorstep.

“It is an experience not to be missed.”

The Royal Highland Show takes place from Thursday 25th June to Sunday 28th June at Ingliston, near Edinburgh Airport.
