The 2020 Glenbeigh Festival & Races have been cancelled
Another important factor is that while we have been lucky to receive financial support from our wonderful sponsors, many of these sponsors are now in a position where their businessess are closed or their income greatly reduced. We could not expect or even ask for their support in these circumstances.
It is with great regret that the Glenbeigh Race and Festival Committee have decided to cancel this years (2020) Races and Festival. While the government roadmap indicates that Sport Events with Spectators and Festivals can take place after August 10th, this is subject to restrictions on numbers and the maintenance of Social Distancing. The numbers that will be allowed are not defined and it would be impossible for us to control numbers in non-enclosed venues such as the beach and the village. It would also be impossible for us to ensure Social Distancing requirements are adhered to.
We wish to thank everybody for their understanding in this regard and we hope to see you all back for the Glenbeigh Festival and Races on the weekend of August 27th, 28th and 29th 2021.
The 2021 running of the annual Glenbeigh Horse and Pony Races will take place on Rossbeigh Strand on Saturday 28th August and Sunday 29th August 2021. The committee is pleased to anounce that the Glenbeigh Festival & Races President for 2021 will be announced in due course. The races will be the centrepiece of a weekend festival with plenty to entertain the whole family. The local pubs of the area are also playing their part, with fantastic nightly entertainment in Ashes Bar, The Towers Hotel, The Red Fox Inn, The Glenbeigh Hotel and Rosspoint Bar and Restaurant.
The 2021 annual Glenbeigh Festival & Races will take place from Friday 27th August to Sunday 29th August 2021
