Events

Discover what’s on at the Castle throughout the year.

You can enjoy a whole range of events all year round at Drumlanrig Castle. What’s on depends on what time you visit, with activities changing almost as fast as the seasons. Things get off to a flying start with Spring Fling, and pick up pace throughout the year.

We have a programme of Ranger-led activities for all ages, you can stroll around country fairs or go on a Landrover tour of the Queensberry Estate – whatever your idea of fun, you’ll discover something new to try. And because the events change constantly there will be something different happening every time you visit.
