Quadrant One – New Members’ Pavilion & Event Space

Work is nearing its final stages on the exciting new Members' Pavilion and event space at the Royal Highland Showground at Ingliston. Coming to life on the site where the much-loved MacRobert stood for over 50 years, the pavilion will provide a new meeting place at the heart of the Showground for those working in Scotland’s agricultural industries and rural communities. It will be a place where our members come together to socialise, share ideas and connect with each other.

We invite you to get involved with the Quadrant One Capital Campaign and lend your support to the future generation of industry leaders.

Members' Pavilion

During the Royal Highland Show, members and their guests will be assured of ‘the best seat in the house’ on the landscaped terrace outdoors or through the pavilion’s floor-to-ceiling glass façade overlooking the main ring. They will be able to catch up with friends over a coffee or lunch in the Members’ Restaurant or enjoy a drink in the bar.

Multi-use event space

With over 600 square metres of flexible event and meeting space, this iconic new building will become the largest hospitality function space out-with Edinburgh’s city centre. The pavilion will be able to accommodate up to 350 for sit down functions and will provide the perfect venue to host conferences, weddings, parties and small exhibitions. Income raised from the hire of Quadrant One will help RHASS continue to develop, grow and promote the rural economy of Scotland.

Frequently asked Questions and their Answers

Will the building be ready for next year’s show? Yes. Construction is ahead of schedule and on budget.

Will there be outdoor catering and seating areas within the Members’ Area at next year’s show? Yes, there will be.

Will there be an east and west entrance into the Members’ Area during the show? There are two entrances; East and West, into the new pavilion. Entrance to the Members’ Area itself will be only through the East during the Show.

Will there be an outdoor children’s play area? Will the small wooden train still be there? Yes. Due to space restrictions this year these were moved to the Countryside Area but will return to the Members’ Area in 2020.

Is the wooden floor sprung for dancing? Yes

Will the windows overlooking the main ring open? No – but the building will be fully air conditioned. The windows will be anti-glare tinted.

Will the MacRobert name be remembered in the new building? The previous members’ pavilion was partly funded by a generous donation from the MacRobert Trust, in return for which the building bore their name. We are looking at how we pay tribute to this support in the new pavilion.

What is the length of the front of the building? The building is 42m (138ft) plus a 3-metre overhang all the way round the building.

Will there be a balcony? The new pavilion will be on one floor, making it fully accessible. The building itself has been raised to offer elevated views down the length of the Main Ring from its floor to ceiling windows. A 3-metre deep covered patio area and wide grass-covered terraces offer further excellent vantage points.
