RHASS announce a series of 'Big Top' concerts to take place at Royal Highland Centre in JUNE 2022

The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) and DF Concerts have announced  a series of ‘Big Top’ concerts to take place at the Royal Highland Centre (RHC) during June 2022.

In partnership with music and event promotor DF Concerts, big names such as Madness and Biffy Clyro are scheduled to appear over the month of  June, including the week of the 200th anniversary Royal Highland Show (23rd – 26th June).  

From Wednesday 8th December, RHASS Members* will be able to purchase advance tickets before they go on general release at 9am on Thursday 9th December. Tickets are available from Gigs In Scotland. 

Commenting on the announcement, RHASS Chairman, Bill Gray said: “In our Royal Highland Show 200th anniversary year, it will be an exciting proposition for visitors to be able to attend the Show during the day and then go on to see amazing acts in the evening. No doubt it will be a welcome addition to the SAYFC dance which will go ahead as usual.  

“The Royal Highland Centre has seen significant upgrading of its infrastructure over recent years and this investment gives it the flexibility to run world class events such as big-name concerts, alongside Scotland’s largest outdoor event, the Royal Highland Show. Clearly running these events back-to-back will require a detailed event plan which we will have in place to ensure both sets of visitors – show goers and concert goers -  have the best possible experience.” 

A spokesperson from DF Concerts said:  “We are delighted to be working alongside the RHASS to increase the offering to those attending the Royal Highland Show in June 2022 with the addition of live music to the programme. We will be working closely with RHASS and the Royal Highland Centre to ensure both the Royal Highland Show and The Big Top events work in harmony and enhance the experience for all attendees. An exclusive presale will be available to RHASS members in the hopes that they make a weekend of it during the Royal Highland Show." 

The Royal Highland Centre generates funds which supports the charitable work of RHASS which promotes and protects the interest of the agricultural sector.   

Bill concluded: “This is another example of how the Society is developing it’s income potential so that it can continue its charitable work. This pandemic has taught us a valuable lesson in this regard, and we will continue to explore ways in which we can secure our financial future for another 200 years of Royal Highland Shows.”  

Tickets for the 200th anniversary Royal Highland Show are currently on sale.
