Glamis Castle will be a blank canvas for RHS anniversary show

Taking place on Friday, March 25 from 7pm-9pm, The Royal Highland Show will project expressive imagery, woven together with never-before-seen treasures and untold stories from the show archives

It is part of a four-week tour which will see the presentation projected on to historic buildings and other venues across Scotland.

the show’s organisers the Royal Highland & Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS), hope the sensory events will raise awareness of the show and highlight its positive impact on Scotland throughout the years.

The installations, free to attend, will feature a five-minute visual history of the show, told through animations, images, films and archive footage. The RHS is key in both Scotland's events and agricultural calendar and the installations will showcase its wide-ranging impact and influence while looking to its future.

Bill Gray, RHASS chairman, said: “The Royal Highland Show Illuminated is the perfect way to give back to regional communities and the RHASS membership across Scotland and herald the return of the show.”

“After two long years without a full Show, we are going all out to make the 200th anniversary Royal Highland Show the best one yet. The events will see a powerful and poignant portrayal of the Show’s value and importance to Scotland’s communities.”

The Royal Highland Show Illuminated will take place at eight locations around Scotland in March. More information can be found at​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​.
