GWCT Members Area
GWCT Members beat the crowds with our member’s carpark and priority entry
Members of the Trust visiting the Fair enjoy a designated forward car park, and a priority pedestrian entry gate for them and their guests for those who have bought tickets in advance.
All Scottish members should receive their Scottish Game Fair pack, containing a uniquely numbered lapel sticker and forward car park pass in June. Members living out with Scotland who wish to visit the Fair and have not previously registered for this mailing should email firstname.lastname@example.org to request their badge and car park pass.
Enjoy the hospitality at the GWCT Members Marquee
Please wear your lapel sticker on arrival, where you will be greeted in our Welcome Marquee just before the turnstiles and your lapel badge will be exchanged for a smart swingtag. You are very welcome to take guests into the GWCT Members’ Garden area by the main ring but we hope you can persuade them to join the Trust before they leave!
We are delighted that family run Saltire Hospitality is again providing a great range of food and drinks in the GWCT Members’ Marquee again this year. Careful attention to quality and detail combined with the finest produce and ingredients will ensure Saltire’s offering is a popular choice for members and guests. Breakfasts, hot lunches and freshly baked goods are served within the main marquee and the bistro area will serve more relaxed dining in the garden. The Saltire Hospitality team’s ethos is simple: a firm belief in using only the finest, local, seasonal Scottish produce.
Visitors can drop in either for the best Pimms at the Fair, a tasty snack, or a delicious hot lunch and feel comfortable and welcomed by attentive waiting staff. Two cash bars will be available to minimise any queuing, and smart designated loos are also available for GWCT members.
If you wish to become a member you can apply online here.
GWCT Central Exhibit & Advisory at the Scottish Game Fair
The theme for 2019 Trust’s ringside stand was ‘Three steps to heather heaven’. Through an innovative central exhibit, we aimed to showcase the pathway that can help moorland managers create and maintain thriving moorland, rich in game and other wildlife. The three steps included: Understanding through research and monitoring; Action based on the evidence and Achievement by following the first two steps. This very visual and practical exhibit will include live red grouse, black grouse, ptarmigan, hill fringe grey partridges and working hill ponies, alongside colourful displays and the kit required for successful moorland management.
