This year our family season ticket for Scone Palace has been well used (thankfully it's plastic or it'd be looking a bit dog-eared by now!). We've enjoyed picnics, playdates and long walks in the grounds come rain or shine. As the summer season draws to a close they're hosting not one but three great events in the coming weeks, all of which are very family friendly!
16th Sept 1-4pm
Don't be late for a very important date at Scone Palace with this adaptation of the classic Alice in Wonderland, brought to you by Ad-Lib Theatre Arts.
You can join all your favourite characters like the Queen of Hearts, Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee, The Mat Hatter, the White Rabbit (if you can catch him!) and of course Alice herself; watch the characters have fun at their Tea Party and play games with them.
Families are welcome to come dressed as their favourite character for an afternoon of fun including classic games like 'Simon Says' (which is the Queen of Hearts favourite!). There will be 3 Mad Hatter Tea Party shows which you can catch at 1.00pm, 2.00pm and 3.00pm.
22nd Sept 12-4pm
The last one of the season! For all keen bird watchers - Scone Palace have a treat for you! The Palace will have a wonderful falconry display by the renowned Raptor World.
These magnificent birds of prey will be on display from 12noon until 4.00pm on the lawns in front of the Palace, with a fantastic flying display at 2.00pm you don’t want to miss!
