By Sian Traynor

Truckfest Scotland will return to Edinburgh this month with a huge range of performances, shows and events.

The national meet-up will set up at the Royal Highland Centre for the first time in two years after the 2020 event was cancelled due to coronavirus.

Now as restrictions ease, the event have confirmed they will be welcoming truckers from around the country on September 18 and 19.

As usual a number of stunt performances have been lined up with ticket holders guaranteed to have their hearts in their mouths at some points.

The main arena will feature a Monster Truck SwampThing and Broke FMX stunt show, as well as aa number of trade stands, fun-fair rides and live music.

According to organisers, monster truck rides will also be available for families to enjoy as they speed around a selected field on-site.

Speaking about the event, Truckfest’s Event Director Bob Limming said: “Our team have worked tirelessly to make sure we bring you the event you have grown to love over the past 30 years or more. We have missed seeing our loyal visitors of Truckfest so much, and we cannot wait to welcome you all back.

"Whenever we ask our visitors why they come to Truckfest the reply is always the same” we’ve come for the Trucks” and we promise you we will still have lots of trucks and lots of family fun for all the family at Truckfest 2021, we ask you this year to pre-book online and you can do so on the Truckfest website where you will of course enjoy the pre-booking discount. Your advanced ticket will also ensure swifter entry into the event.”

Organisers have also confirmed that a full ticket refund is guaranteed should the event not go ahead.
