Black Isle Show 2024

Main show Thursday 1 August
Preview Evening Wednesday 31 July

The 2024 programme will be published in due course. Keep an eye out on social media and this page for updates.

One of our main ring attractions for 2024 is Steve “showtime” Colley.

Steve ‘Showtime’ Colley formed his stunt display in 2006 whilst still competing, following enormous interest and requests from sponsors and show organisers to perform at various events across the UK and beyond.

The Steve (Showtime) Colley show incorporates a purpose built mobile stunt display unit that is quick to assemble and dismantle. The show also incorporates full commentary via a helmet microphone.

The show consists of one of the worlds’ best trials riders performing amazing freestyle tricks and spectacular stunts, 7ft vertical step and of course the world famous mono bike (Steve is the only trials rider in the world to perform this stunt) which has no front wheel or front brake.

Some of Steve’s achievements:

  • 3 times Word Champion (TDN)
  • 3 times British Solo Trials Champion
  • 4 times winner of Scottish Six


Returning to the main ring in 2024 on Thursday 1st August will be a Heavy Horse Turnout Championship class. It has been a number of years since the turnouts were last at the Black Isle Show and this should provide a fantastic spectacle to the main ring on Thursday. More information on this to follow as we get closer to the show.
