11am - 6pm
Traquair Fair set in the magical grounds of Scotland’s Oldest Inhabited House is one of the best family events in Scotland with a superb range of entertainment for all ages.
Traquair Fair is back in 2013 with a sensational “Sixties” theme that will feature the music, film, fashion and culture of that extraordinary decade.
For the first time the Fair will feature a pop up cinema in Traquair House where there will be a screening of “Tamlin”, a feature film located at Traquair in 1968 with Ava Gardner, Joanna Lumley, Ian McShane and others as well as other 60’s films from the archives.
Music will include iconic sixties legends, The Troggs and The Animals, both with original band members as well as a great line up of new music with a Sixties influence, an international flavour with music from the African continent.
A new enlarged Children’s Area situated by the Maze will have a space theme with rocket launches, a man from the moon and storytellers reading from some of the children’s classics from the 1960’s.
There will be spectacular outdoor street theatre, weird and wonderful walkabout acts as well as Craft Stalls, Workshops, Complementary Therapies and demonstrations.
Delicious world foods and local food producers will be selling and exhibiting in the Old Walled Garden as well as Traquair’s own Traquair Fair Ale brewed exclusively for the weekend.
A fashion show and photography exhibition are also planned in the house exhibiting some of the great fashion coming out of Scottish Borders’ at this time.
Keep an eye on this site as programme information will be constantly updated! Tickets will be on sale from Tuesday, 2nd April 2013.
