WITH THE absence of the Royal Highland Show leaving a gaping hole in our farming calendars and with it, the legendary kist parties which feature down the livestock lines - the SF decided to host its own version of events to commemorate shows gone by.

On night one of what would have been the RHS’s official opening day to the public (Thursday June 18) we held the first of our three virtual kist parties, hearing from familiar voices and tales of times gone past, listening to the best of farming talent and raising a dram to friends who will be missed this year.

We hope you all enjoy night one of our kist party, cheers from all at the SF!
