The Royal Highland Show is urging visitors to snap up remaining tickets as demand soars for the event, which takes place next week from Thursday to Sunday.

There are only a few hundred tickets remaining for the Friday and Saturday of the event, which this year is celebrating 200 years since the very first Highland Show took place back in 1822 – the first time in it’s 200 years that two days will sell out ahead of the event.

With huge demand for these tickets, the only way to guarantee entry now is to buy in advance. There are still car parking tickets available to purchase for every day of the show.

Mark Currie, director of operations at the Royal Highland Show, said: "We are delighted that show goers are clearly as excited as we are about the return of Scotland’s biggest outdoor event. With Friday and Saturday looking like sell-out days, we’re encouraging people who might be holding off to book Friday or Saturday now, or to consider a Thursday or Sunday visit.

"If for any reason you can’t attend this year, luckily you can still catch the action through RHS TV – it will be broadcast live from the showground over the four days and available to watch for free on the Royal Highland Show website."

The Royal Highland Show, supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, is taking place from June 23-26. Tickets, including for car parking, must be pre-purchased online this year and no tickets will be available to buy on the gate.

The show will be broadcast online this year via RHS TV, funded by the Scottish Government. For further information and to purchase tickets please visit www.royalhighlandshow.org
