RHASS Event Delivery - Operations Team

Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland:  The Royal Highland & Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) is a long established Scottish Charity that exists to support and encourage the very best of agriculture, communicate and bring to life its value and develop a greater appreciation of the impact of agriculture on everyday life – it achieves this by delivering the aspirations of our stakeholders.

The RHASS is perhaps best known for the Royal Highland Show in June – a showcase of all the best in food, farming and rural life. However, this only represents around 50% of its revenue. The Royal Highland Centre (RHC) is Edinburgh’s largest events venue and welcomes over 1 million people every year to over 220 events, including outdoor/indoor music events, car/track events and consumer lifestyle events.
