Summer is upon us and with it comes some fantastic agricultural shows that we can’t wait to attend! We’ll be showing off our fantastic products up and down the UK and here are some of the events we will be at...
Royal Highland Show - 20-23 June
The Royal Highland Show near Edinburgh is a fantastic four-day event for all the family. The event boasts the largest display of agricultural machinery in the UK and we will be showing off many of our favourite items and answering your questions.
The days are filled with an array of competitions, demonstrations, entertainment and activities. There truly is something for all ages with talks and tastings at Scotland’s Larder Live! host to hundreds of food and drink exhibitors, and cooking classes for little ones at the RHET Discovery Centre.
At 13th Avenue Arcade you will find luxury fashions, jewellery, arts and crafts, and homeware and gardening accessories in abundance. There is also a packed programme of music and a Forestry Arena where record-breaking attempts will be made at the Scottish Pole Climbing and Utility Pole Climbing Championships.
The Royal Highland Show is held at the Royal Highland Centre, just outside of Edinburgh city centre and close to the city’s airport.
Vine Expo - 11 July
The increasing interest in UK wine has brought about the inaugural Vine Expo, an event focusing on UK viticulture and the supplies and services available to growers operating in the wine sector. We can’t wait to be part of this new event and showcase the very latest machinery and equipment needed in the vineyard.
Many of the biggest names in UK winemaking will be in attendance, with expert speakers giving seminars throughout the day sharing their knowledge and experience. There will, of course, be wine tasting, and not just any wine, acclaimed wine-critic Matthew Jukes has chosen the 50 most influential English and Welsh wines for attendees to try.
UK wine production grew by an incredible 130% between 2017 and 2018. This increase in volume has brought with it an increase in awards and accolades for British wines around the world. If you are looking to invest in the industry, planning on embarking on a new career, or are just passionate about wine, then it will definitely be worthwhile attending this maiden event.
Vine Expo takes place on 11 July at Plumpton College in East Sussex, a major area for UK winemaking.
Royal Welsh Show - 22-25 July
Towards the end of July, we will be attending the Royal Welsh Show, the largest agricultural show in Wales and one of the largest in Europe. The event has been organised by the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society since 1904 - the year it was formed - and has grown to become a major highlight in the agricultural calendar.
We will be showing off many of our fantastic products and answering your questions at the Llanelwedd Showground in the scenic Welsh countryside. Each day offers a 12-hour programme packed full of exciting entertainment, attractions and displays including livestock competitions and forestry, horticulture and craft activities, as well as countryside sports and great shopping and food and drink options.
The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society has played a pivotal role in the development and promotion of Welsh agriculture and its rural economy, and we look forward to playing our part in promoting some amazing products that help improve life in rural areas!
