Extra treats on menu for Dalkeith Agricultural Show

Have your say

The highlight of Midlothian’s farming calendar, the eagerly awaited Dalkeith Agricultural Show, takes place on Saturday, July 9.

Organiser John Biggar said: “The committee has put considerable effort in to attractions to encourage all ages to attend and enjoy the show.”

In a new initiative, local food producers will have the chance to show off their wares at a new food hall, supported by Midlothian Council and the European Community Tyne Esk Leader 2007-2013 Programme.

A marquee will showcase this year’s baking, handiwork, floral art, crafts and children’s entries.

In another first for the event, some schools have been taking part in a poster design competition with the results to be announced at the show.
