This year’s Dalkeith Show, organised by the Dalkeith Agricultural Society, takes place at Dalkeith Country Park on Saturday.

The all-day show, now in its 211th year, will feature the best of Midlothian farming, with cattle and sheep categories and a number of equestrian events, as well as a number of local food and craft exhibitors.

Linda Stewart, chairperson of Dalkeith Agricultural Society, said: “I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully the sun is going to shine. We will have horses, sheep, cattle, a dog show,live music and a craft and produce marquee.

“There will be lots of agricultural trade stands with tractors etc, and general trade stands featuring anything from bioscience to dog biscuits. We will have children’s attractions, sheep shearing, a butcher’s demonstration from our sponsor Morrisons and pipe bands too. So there is a lot going on.

“This is where farmers can showcase their produce and let people see where their food comes from.”

Tickets: £10 adults, £5 children (5-16), family ticket (two adults and two children) £25. Under fives go free. Receive 20 per cent off when purchased from Morrisons Dalkeith, Hunter’s Tryst and Moredun.
