Butchery Demonstrations at the Royal Highland Show

Butchery Demonstrations at the Royal Highland Show

Turnbull’s are incredibly proud to reveal we will be attending the Royal Highland Show to deliver Butchery Demonstrations on Saturday June 25.

The event, which takes place from June 23 to June 26 at Ingliston and showcases the best of agriculture, food, and rural life, provides a priceless chance to educate the public about the effort, expertise, and commitment that go into the production of British Beef, Lamb, and Specially Selected Pork while also re-engaging the red meat levy board's members.


Daniel Turnbull, sixth generation Butcher, will be delivering two live Beef Butchery Demonstrations, and the resulting produce will then be prepared and cooked live by Elle Louwrens from Nor Loft in Edinburgh at the Quality Meat Scotland stand located at 555 on Avenue O at 10:30am and 15:15pm.

“To be able to showcase the craft of Butchery at the Royal Highland Show is a real honour. I have only ever done a handful of small demonstration’s before, but this is next level”

“I am looking forward to working alongside Chef Elle up on stage in front of a large audience. It is a real privileged to have been invited to take part”

Amongst the range of activities taking there will also be exciting competitions and giveaways, as well as insightful industry talks.  Some of the younger visitors will also be able to enjoy the interactive area from the health and education team, where they can learn about the animal welfare standards and sustainability credentials of Scottish red meat, and how it can be enjoyed as part of a healthy, balanced diet.


Other familiar faces on the stand include: Instagram star Just Jess, Edinburgh chef Paul Wedgewood, Aberdeen-based chef Kevin Dalgleish, Colin Nicolson of Mingary Castle and Scottish Junior Chef of the Year, Fraser Cameron. Top butchers from around the country will also be on hand to exhibit their craftsmanship and share valuable advice. 

Away from the kitchen, animal health and welfare specialist, Eilidh Corr will give an unmissable Ted talk style presentation on cattle temperament and its impacts on productivity, followed by audience driven question and answer session.

 Sharing her thoughts on the upcoming event, QMS marketing and communications director, Lesley Cameron said: “The Royal Highland Show has remained a highlight in many people’s calendars, agricultural and beyond, for years, and we cannot wait to return to Ingliston next week, for the first time since 2019”

“The show provides the perfect stage for showcasing the extraordinary work, skill and dedication behind the world-renowned Scotch brands, and we hope that the engaging sessions get members of the public excited to select delicious, nutritious, sustainable and traceable Scotch red meat on supermarket shelves and in restaurants.”

The Royal Highland Show is Scotland's biggest annual Agricultural show. The show is organised by the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland. Held annually in June at the Royal Highland Centre in Ingliston, the event attracts over 1,000 exhibitors, 4,500 head of livestock, and up to 190,000 visitors. This year marks the 200th anniversary of the show, and is the first time it has taken place since 2019, due to COVID.
