Local Show Engagement Fund

The Local Show Engagement Fund was set up in 2023 to provide much-needed support for agricultural Shows across Scotland. 

The Fund aims to help local agri Shows recover and thrive following significant financial challenges over the past years. 

Approved applications for the 2023 fund include the installation of a permanent WiFi connection within the Turriff Show showground, the fitting of pedestrian barriers around the main ring area of the Stirling Agricultural Show, and improvements to the Kirriemuir Show’s education marquee.
