Our commentator is Johnny Morison, who has been commentating at the fair for over 20 years, taking over from the late Jimmy McGregor. Originally Jimmy and Johnny took a top seat in the grandstand, something Johnny describes as being like two owls on a rafter. The current commentator’s booth continues the avian theme – it’s a converted henhouse!
Alongside our firm favourites, 2019 saw some new additions to our Oliami Main Ring timetable, including headline act the Jez Avery Stunt Show, an amazing performance on four wheels, two wheels, one wheel and no wheels and the ROLLOVER QUAD! This jaw-dropping show includes wheelies, stoppies, two-wheel driving, drifting, doughnuts and precision driving.
Another highlight was French hunting band, Les Trompes de la Cottenciniere who return to the fair for the first time since 2015. Their infectious sounds and personalities were not to be missed.
They were joined by pipe bands, foxhounds, gun dogs sponsored by Murray Beith Murray, birds of prey, a tug of war and terrier racing to name a few!
Nadia & Murray Alexander are proud to be sponsoring the OLIAMI Main Ring at this year’s GWCT Scottish Game Fair. Being embedded in the countryside through their various businesses of farming, construction and leisure, supporting the GWCT Scottish Game Fair was a natural choice. Nadia and Murray are excited to welcome friends old & new to this year’s game fair to enjoy a glass of fizz at OLIAMI (stand D1), and where they shall also be launching their recent luxury collection – Alexander Aodach.
