Royal Highland Show 2014

Why not enjoy a day with your children at The Royal Highland Show 2014?

The drop in activities notes places of interest around the showground to take children amongst the trade-stands and the RHET Activity List shows the activities that schools book into over the Thurs/Fri. These activities are available all 4 days to the public when no schools are there and the cooking, baking and dairy can be signed up to on the Saturday and Sunday in the RHET Children’s discovery Centre.

Tour Stewards

Schools can also request a FREE tour steward to show their group around the Show. Stewards can give informative tours and make sure groups arrive at their booked activity stations on time.

Eating Areas

There are many 'food courts' around the showground, all marked on the map.
When the sun shines it can be nice to sit on the grass by the clock tower which overlooks the Main Ring. Alternatively, cover can be taken within the grandstand, which also has a view over the Main Ring. This has nearly 1800 seats and is free to all to access however, this can be particularly busy if a popular event is on in the Main Ring.

General Public

The RHET Children's Discovery Centre is open to the general public on all 4 days of the show from 9.30am - 5pm each day.

School groups can book in for sessions on the Thursday & Friday of the Show when the centre can be extremely busy. However where there is a gap in groups the public can particpate in activities. Many will have a sign-up list available to other showgoers
with a time to come back and take part!

The sign-up lists are also available over the weekend where we have no school groups booked in.

As usual we will have the toy farm which is a firm favourite with youngsters year after year, and some parents too!

Buggy Parks are available to parents whose children are participating, to leave the gang-way free to pass through between each of the activities.
