Field and Lawn: Two Decades of Excellence at the Royal Highland Show

Field & Lawn at the Royal Highland Show

Trusted event Marquee Partner for the Royal Highland Show

As a leading supplier of event marquees across Scotland, Field and Lawn has played an integral role in supplying event infrastructure to the Royal Highland Show for more than two decades. The event attracts a staggering 217,000 visitors, solidifying its status as the largest agricultural show in the region.

What was provided?

Field and Lawn supplied a total of 45,000 square meters of marquee space across the site which was made up of over 40 large clearspan event marquees for the show and its exhibitors. As well as providing the structures our onsite teams also took responsibility for marquee delivery, installation, and dismantling across the extensive show site. Our in-house teams were on hand to carry out maintenance and responsive repairs throughout the month-long build program.

Meticulous Planning and Coordination

Working closely with show organisers, the Field & Lawn team developed and refined marquee placements, configurations, and specifications. This comprehensive approach included the provision and refinement of build programs, site plans, risk assessments, method statements, weather contingency plans, and emergency procedures. Regular weekly updates and client meetings ensured a seamless delivery of the contract.

On The Ground Execution

Appointing a dedicated Senior Project Manager and Project Manager was essential to oversee the installation process on the ground. Prior to installation, all marquees underwent rigorous testing and checks, were thoroughly cleaned, and efficiently loaded using Field and Lawn’s own HGV fleet. A team of over 20 in-house marquee riggers worked tirelessly for four weeks, resulting in zero health and safety incidents.
