Abbotsbury tickets – latest

July 9th 2012

We are really sorry that the event on Saturday 7th July had to be cancelled.

If you have a ticket you have the option of using it for entry into Wickham Festival (near Portsmouth) on Saturday 4th August. The line-up on that day includes Show of Hands, Bellowhead, Home Service, Jackie Oates and Jim Causley amongst others, and a ticket for the day normally costs £50, so this represents a really good deal. The offer applies to Adult, Family (2 adults + up to 3 children) and Child tickets.

If you are unable to go to Wickham for any reason a full refund is available.

To obtain a refund you need to send your tickets back to Abbotsbury Tourism so that they receive them by the last post on Friday 27th July.
Please post to Abbotsbury Tourism Ltd, West Yard Barn, West Street, Abbotsbury, Dorset, DT3 4JT.

The Long Way Home

The landmark new release sees the band returning to their musical folk roots.
The release date is 15th Jan 2016, but pre-release copies will be exclusively available to buy on the Autumn tour.


Show of Hands are undeniably one of the strongest current forces in acoustic music - England's finest and most popular roots duo and something of a "people's band".

"Formidable operators in the roots arena. A class act"

The Independent

"Voted Best Duo and the Best Original Song"
