North Hop

Introducing our Summer Events Programme 2019

Sunday 26th May 2019

So as some of you may have spotted on our social channels on Friday we made a rather special announcement re our plans for this summer...

Following the success of our first North Hop x National Trust for Scotland collaboration event at Haddo House back in May we are delighted to announce a full Summer Events Programme with NTS with some of their stunning venues across Aberdeenshire and Angus!

Each event will have a different theme to suit the surroundings but each one will showcase awesome street food, market traders and makers from across Scotland, along with some entertainment/activities to tie it all together.

Over the coming few weeks and months we'll be making lots of exciting announcements re these events but in the meantime here's a bit of a summary of each one and details on how to get your hands on tickets...

North Hop x Pitmedden Garden : Secret Garden Experience
Saturday 20 & Sunday 21 July 2019
Plant Based/Wellness Fest
Making the most of the serene surroundings of Pitmedden Garden this event is all about discovering plant based makers and producers, taking the opportunity to relax at every opportunity. For those wanting to fully embrace the theme we'll have outdoor yoga and wellness classes to participate in, and for those looking for some botanical fun we'll have a Mad Hatters Boozy Tea Tent!

North Hop x House of Dun : Exploring Angus
Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 July 2019
Angus Food, Drink, Craft Market
Angus is home to so many amazing food/drink businesses, makers and activity providers and that's exactly what this event is all about! We'll be making the most of all the great wee nooks and crannies and tucked away spaces of House of Dun to host street food vendors, bars, market traders, music buskers and more. And with an epic view out to the Montrose Basin you'll most definitely enjoy lunch with a view!

North Hop x Castle Fraser : USA Roots
Saturday 31 August & Sunday 1 September 2019
American Themed Festival
As big fans of everything USA the minute we set sights on the fairytale-esque Castle Fraser and its impressive Events Field we knew this theme would fit! This event will combine American elements with our Scottish Roots, marrying both cultures/traditions. Think down & dirty cooking, epic burgers, full-on themed bars, live music, beer pong, cheerleaders, mini Highland games, touches of tartan and maybe even a watchtower piper!

North Hop x Haddo House : Doggy Day Out
Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 September 2019
Dog Festival
Our first event at Haddo House back in May was jam packed with lots of lovely dogs so we're taking this event to the next level and making it all about the dogs! Expect a doggy bar (there will be bars for the humans too!), snack stations (and food trucks), market traders to suit both four legged and two legged peeps, and lots of activities for dogs, and all the family to enjoy. This super dog friendly and family friendly event is definitely one for the diary!
