Scottish Smallholder Festival changes date and venue for 2019

Due to circumstances beyond its control, Smallholding Scotland, the charity behind the Scottish Smallholder Festival, has announced changes to both the date and venue for this year’s Festival.

The Festival will now be held at the The Forfar Mart on Saturday 26th October 2019.

This decision has been taken following updated information received in the last few days from Lawrie & Symington in Lanark, which confirmed that the reserved date of 28th September is no longer suitable, due to other activities taking place at their venue.

The organisers will be contacting all speakers, trade and craft stand holders, entrants and other associated parties to discuss the change, and full refunds will be given if necessary.

Smallholding Scotland regrets any disappointment or inconvenience caused and hopes that the smallholding community will support the Festival again this year. The organisation would also like to thank the Forfar Mart for assisting us in securing an alternative date, thereby allowing us to continue to stage this important Festival in 2019.

The event remains the only one of its type specifically aimed at smallholders and crofters, and will include topical seminars, livestock and equine showcase, rural skills, poultry & waterfowl show plus local food and retail opportunities.

More information will be released soon.
