So What is Abbotsbury Festival ??
Held this year on the 6th July, it’s a lovely relaxed afternoon within a natural amphitheatre created within the Sub Tropical Gardens of Abbotsbury, near Weymouth. The gates will open to the gardens at 10am, and your wristband allows you full access to wander round the fabulous surroundings. At 1.30 there is open access to the festival area, so you can set up your chairs or blankets. You can take your own picnic, or else there is a beautiful cafe on site and BBQ available within the festival area.
There will be the annual raffle to win an Oddy instrument – this year it is a cuatro used by Steve Knightley, so make sure you take some pennies with you. All money raised goes to a nominated charity.
Music starts at 3pm and runs through to dusk at 9.45pm with a final concert from Show of Hands.
Parking on the site is free. Wristbands also allow access to the Swannery and children’s farm throughout the weekend.
This year Tom Robinson, Track Dogs, Banter and Kelly Oliver will be performing throughout the day. This promises to be a wonderfully relaxed day with family tickets available for those that want to take their children along – definitely worth a day out or weekend away!
