Making travel to The Royal Deeside Motor Show carbon neutral (posted 17/6/2022)

Keeping emissions down is front of mind as the UK’s car industry embarks on the road to 2030 targets, so to recognising this The Royal Deeside Motor Show is working in partnership with Ecologi to offset all visitors’ carbon emissions accumulated by visiting the show.

Showgoers who want to reduce their carbon emissions will be able to contribute towards neutralising their carbon emissions on arrival to the show by simply opting into the donation platform when purchasing tickets, via the link below or by scanning the QR code on arrival.

In return, Ecologi will donate to environmental projects all over the world, ranging from afforestation to renewable energy and emerging technology, all the schemes are UN-approved projects, across the globe.

“Reducing emissions is very much at the heart of the motor industry at the moment and the rapid advancement of technology is making our cars cleaner, more efficient and far better for the environment”

“As a responsible company, the show’s promoter, Etiom, recognises that any large event will have a carbon emissions impact, so the opportunity to work with Ecologi to neutralise that is a strong indication of how we are working with the car industry that we know and love to help it achieve its own goals, while helping the environment ourselves.”

Campers Set to Pitch Up for Unique Royal Deeside Event (posted 18/4/2022)

A unique event which is set to draw thousands of visitors to Royal Deeside this summer has announced a significant new addition for people looking to “pitch up” for the weekend-long festivities.

The Royal Deeside Motor Show is revving up for its return to Kincardine Castle on July 2nd and 3rd and, for the first time, visitors will be able to make a weekend of it thanks to the addition of a new, off-grid camping experience and music festival.

Sponsored by Hillhead Caravan Park, the camping venture is being held in association with Mental Health Aberdeen and will feature a limited number of pitches for caravans, motorhomes, campervans and tents.

In keeping with the motoring theme of the weekend, drinks partners Devenick Drinks Co. will be on hand to serve up a range of locally produced refreshments, including craft beers, ciders, vodkas, gins and liqueurs from their Citroen HY van which has been converted into a spirit bar.  There will even be the chance for thirsty campers to plan ahead and order their tipple to be waiting for them when they pitch up.

Meanwhile, Country Park Catering will be on hand with vintage van street food village featuring a range of mouthwatering options including freshly cooked artisan pizza, The Rind House pork kitchen and Le Petit Café hot drinks, croissants and crepes.

As well as soaking in the breathtaking Royal Deeside scenery, campers will be treated to two evenings of some top live music from the North East and beyond thanks to a partnership with North East Arts Touring (NEAT).  Across the sessions – which will be hosted by River Dee Radio – will be sets from the likes of The Ruckus, Double Jack, the brand-new Arthur Coats Trio, Monza Express, and folk duo The Sorries.

Adam Simpson of Etiom Events explained: “After conducting a survey among visitors at last year’s Royal Deeside Motor Show, it was clear that camping facilities were high on lots of people’s wish lists, so we’re delighted to introduce this for 2022.

“It is really important to us that the camping is about much more than simply providing the space, so we are delighted that the music festival has also been created to entertain visitors.  Many of us have missed listening to or performing live music and we are sure that this will be a popular addition to what is shaping up to be a busy, exciting and packed weekend.”
