Spire Edinburgh Hospitals are delighted to announce their continued partnership with the Royal Highland Show, signing a three year deal earlier this month, following on from the success of their inaugural sponsorship at the 2018 show.
Celebrating its 179th year, The Royal Highland Show is one of Scotland's most iconic events, showcasing the very best of farming, food and rural life.
As part of the four day event, the Royal Highland Show hosts the largest Scottish Show Jumping event in Scotland and the North of England.
Our partnership with the Royal Highland Show will see the Grand Prix change its name to ‘Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Grand Prix’ for the next three years (2019-2021). Taking place this year on Saturday 22 June 2019, the event is one of the highlights of the Royal Highland Show and is the ultimate test for a horse and rider’s technical skills, and incredible entertainment for all.
"The Royal Highland Show is one of the country’s top events in the equestrian world and it is fantastic to witness the skill and expertise that the competitors bring to the competition," says Jo Andrews, Fundraising and Partnerships Manager at the Royal Highland Show. “We are delighted to have extended our partnership with Spire Edinburgh Hospitals and are grateful for their support of the prestigious Grand Prix.”
Kenneth Hay, Hospital Director added “The Royal Highland Show is one of the most significant events in the Scottish cultural calendar, highlighting the best of farming and rural life. It’s also a key event for the equestrian world and we’re delighted to be extending our partnership with such a prestigious event. We got off to a great start in 2018 and are really looking forward to supporting the show over the next three years.”
The Royal Highland Show will take place at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh on 20 - 23 June 2019.
