Dalkeith Show has been run annually in Midothian, since 1805, by the Dalkeith Agricultural Society.

We aim to bring together the farming and non-farming communities in Midlothian and the surrounding area, to show what we have to offer. It is welcoming, friendly, and makes a fun-packed family day out.

In 2017, the show takes place at Dalkeith Country Park. Please browse the website to learn about what will be happening on Saturday 8th July 2017 – we hope to see you there.

Vintage Tractors

Do you have a vintage tractor? Then give consideration to coming to our show next year. You can enter it into being judged against other tractors - though you don't need to if don't want to.  We hold 2 vintage tractor parades in our main ring, so you could participate in this too.  All that we ask is that you get in touch to let us now that you want to come along, so that we can ensure we have enough space to accommodate you!

NC500 for RSABI

Tomorrow, one of our local East Lothian farmers is setting out to drive the North Coast 500 in this  brand new Massey Fergusson 6616.  We caught up with him before he left – “I’m looking forward to all of the trip as it’s a bit of an adventure”.  Who can blame him when he’ll get to take in places such as Applecross, Gairloch, Ullapool, Durness, John o’ Groats, Dornoch, and all the beautiful places in between.

Aiming to drive all the hours of daylight that the Northern Highlands will provide at this time of year, John has set himself the ambitious target of completing the journey within three days.

“I chose the NC 500 after watching you-tube films and seeing the spectacular scenery and sights of the north coast of Scotland” 

The trip took a fair bit of preparation particularly to find accommodation on this popular tourist route; however he said “Getting sponsorship was not difficult; Ancroft tractors were keen to organise a tractor from Massey Ferguson and A F Noble supplied a demonstrator Isuzu pick-up for back up, carrying fuel supplied by Chrystal petroleum (Macmerry)”.  He has also been lucky to also have the support from his friend Brian Blackie who will be driving the pick-up. 

However, John isn’t doing all this just for fun, he aims to raise awareness and money for RSABI, Scotland's charity that supports people who have worked in agriculture, crofting and other land based industries and who are now experiencing hardship. “I'm supporting rsabi as any help they can get will help many people get through these difficult times in agriculture, caused by no fault of their own.” 

“The new route in the North Highlands is an inspiring one and I hope my wee challenge in this big red tractor will encourage many people to come forward and donate funds to such a worthwhile cause!”
