This Saturday Hopetoun House is the venue for a third-party event – the Fly Open Air Festival
To minimise traffic for our neighbours, many of the attendees will arrive between noon and five pm by bus via the Abercorn Road beyond Newton. Taxis and drop-offs will be signed to enter via the Banks Road on the A904 to the East of Newton. All traffic exits via the western end of the Abercorn Road back on to the A904. The event closes at 10pm and there are no fireworks. The Shore road should not be used by attendees on Saturday, though will be used for set-up and staff vehicles. For this reason, and due to ongoing forestry work in the surrounding estate we advise that this road isn’t used as pedestrian access by South Queensferry residents attending the festival. We advise that you arrive by vehicle, following the event signage.
Please be aware that the House, Grounds and Tearoom will all be closed on Saturday, though we look forward to welcoming you back as normal on Sunday.
