Fair Director, David Noble said: “We are working hard to put together an extra special show to celebrate our silver anniversary and our organising team are buoyed up to deliver a first-rate Fair.

“To mark the occasion we will have a 25th anniversary reception to which everyone is welcome to join us for complimentary refreshments as well as a few other surprises up our sleeve!”

This year’s Fair will be engaging with VisitScotland/Scottish Natural Heritage ‘Year of Natural Scotland’. The initiative aims to inspire the public to get involved and connect with nature and has involved the Scottish Game Fair to encourage participation.

GWCT is working with SNH to develop a series of exciting displays which will highlight Scotland's Big 5 - the fascinating red squirrel, red deer, golden eagle, otter and harbour seal, and is aimed at encouraging people across Scotland to enjoy these wonderful animals in their natural habitat.

“Within GWCT’s own exhibit at the heart of the Fair, we will be celebrating our own Big 5 – red grouse, black grouse, mountain hare, grey partridge and woodcock - with a series of mini landscapes, each one depicting different environments and management practices,” said Katrina Candy, GWCT Head of PR & Education

“The Scottish Game Fair is a wonderful day out for all the family with a wide range of activities for all ages as well as a shoppers’ paradise of over 300 trade stands and fantastic Food Hall. It is our largest educational event and we’re very keen that every visitor goes away having learnt a little bit more about our amazing rural landscape.”

The Scottish Fair has become one of the leading countryside events in Scotland and almost 40,000 people are expected to descend on Scone Palace to join in the celebrations this year.

The GWCT’s Scottish Game Fair is principally sponsored by Artemis, The Scotsman and Mitsubishi.
