The date for this years’ Abbotsbury Festival is confirmed as 4th July 2015 – put it in your diary now!
If you haven’t been to Abbotsbury before, this is a great chance to get all the atmosphere of a festival without the crowds! Limited to just 1000 people, and with a line up specially selected by Show of Hands, this is a great one day family friendly event based between Weymouth and Bridport in Dorset.
This year is the 250th anniversary of the establishment of Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens so we have teamed up with them to offer ticket holders some fabulous extras:
- The 250th ticket purchased will receive a meal voucher worth £50 (food and soft/hot drinks only) to spend in the restaurant on Saturday 4 July 2015
- ALL wristband holders can gain FREE entry to the Swannery and Abbotsbury Childrens Farm on both 4th and 5th July 2015 (valued at over £20 per person!)
- There will also be wristband spot prizes announced on the day, including
1 x annual family pass (2 adults + 3 children) to Abbotsbury worth £75, 1 x four pack of Abbotsbury new 250th anniversary beer and 1 x £10 gift voucher to spend in the garden shop
Tickets are available from the Abbotsbury Tourism here
The Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens are a fabulous place to visit in their own right. They were established in 1765 by the first Countess of Ilchester as a kitchen garden for her nearby castle and have been developed since then into a magnificent 30 acres filled with rare and exotic plants from all over the world. Many of these plants were first introductions to this country, discovered by the plant hunting descendants of the Countess.
