Extra treats on menu for Dalkeith Agricultural Show

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.
