We are delighted to welcome the Big Kids Circus back to Archerfield Estate this summer!
This year they are celebrating 250 years of the modern circus with an all new show to delight the crowds. You can expect dazzling new ground and aerial artists from England, Ukraine and Cuba as well as an hilarious new Clown, Papeluxo. A perfect show for all the family to enjoy!
This production is hosted by Big Kid Circus. The ticket office will be open at the big top onsite in the field opposite Archerfield House between 10 am & 8 pm from Monday 16th July. Alternatively, call on 07766552211.
We’ve teamed up with Scotland’s Garden Scheme so that on Saturday 14th July 2018 all of our garden entry proceeds will go to local charities.
The scheme supports over 250 charities Scotland wide, many of which are small and local, and can really reap the benefits from this donation.
The young troupe of talented actors and musicians will take over the Morris Garden, using their musical instruments and quick wits to breathe life into the comic tale of runaway lovers, beguiling potions and an unfortunate individual who gets turned into a donkey.
Why not arrive early and enjoy Abbotsford's gardens for a picnic. Refreshments will be available from our visitor centre on the day, as well as ice creams and a cash bar in the gardens. The garden will open from 6pm with the performance starting at 7pm and ending 9.30pm, with a short interval half-way through the performance.
When Doctor John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals, news of his skills spreads far and wide. Soon animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So, he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew of Jip the dog, Chee-Chee the monkey, Dab-Dab the Duck and permanently hungry Gub-Gub the pig, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, spread compassion and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.Find out more
