ScottFest is an exciting new family festival held at Abbotsford in August to celebrate Sir Walter Scott's birthday.

ScottFest 2021 was a hugely successful first year for the festival, themed around Scott's novel Ivanhoe. Thousands of visitors enjoyed jousting, living history, falconry, music and dance and much more across Abbotsford's estate.

We're now looking forward to an even bigger event in 2022, watch this space to find out more.
