Dalkeith Show is held on the second Saturday of July each year in Dalkeith Country Park, with Dalkeith Palace as an impressive backdrop, giving access to woodland and riverside walks and opportunities to see local wildlife.

A feature of the Show is the huge range of competitions, in categories for cattle, sheep, horses, ponies, dogs, crafts, baking among others.

Around 100 trade and craft stands showcase farm machinery, motor vehicles, furniture, shepherds' crooks, gifts and foodstuffs.

Attractions include a large display of vintage tractors, a children's area (with bouncy castles and slides) and a licensed catering and bar marquee.

Throughout the day, the main ring will be hosting entertainment events.

Something for everyone!

They will be raising funds for their charity partner Clic Sargent.

“CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. We do this individually, locally and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things, like getting well. And if the worst happens, we will work with bereaved families to get them support, to help them cope with their emotional pain”

 

This is one tent definitely not to be missed!!

Tyne Esk LEADER Funding [...]

FUTURE PROOFING DALKEITH SHOW

Towards the end of 2017 Dalkeith Agricultural Society’s Treasurer undertook on behalf of the Society the exercise of pulling together an application to the Tyne Esk LEADER Funding Project

 

The aim was to FUTURE PROOF DALKEITH SHOW.

The Show brings livestock exhibitors, farmers, equestrian enthusiasts, a good mix of trade stand exhibitors and the local community together in one day in a wonderful outdoor countryside setting. With visitor numbers rising significantly in 2017 there is an increasing interest and awareness from the public in how their food is produced.

The Show provides them with the opportunity to see how and speak to some of these producers.

 

However, to comply with health and safety requirements and ensure the safety of competitors and the visiting public the Society must hire in crowd barriers, livestock gates, horse jumps, marquees, public address systems etc. It was the wish of the current committee to commit to the purchase of some of these items with a view to making the show more self-sufficient and enabling the Society to manage future costs associated with the running of the Show.

We heard earlier this year that our application had been successful and with the aid of Tyne Esk LEADER Funding the Society have been able to purchase:

Crowd Barriers

Additional Sheep pens

Working Hunter Jumps

General Purpose Trailer

Updated Horse schedule

Unfortunately we have not been able to secure a BSPS panel judge for the Working Hunter Blair Qualifiers Classes so we have reluctantly had to cancel these classes, however, we will  run a Non Affiliated Open Working Hunter Pony Section, open to Plaited and M&M's (no age restriction of rider). Please see the updated Schedule on our website.

 

Late entries will be taken up to Thursday 12th July 2018 thereafter entries on the day will double in price.

Horse Schedule

The Horse Schedule has now been completed and is now available to download
