Mourne Observer press release
Newcastle’s Festival of Flight will take to the air again in June this year.
The annual spectacular was brought forward by two months from its regular August slot last year as a result of festival mainstays, the Red Arrows embarking on a 9 week North American summer tour. and whilst the RAF have not yet published the aerobatic teams dates for 2020 the council has pencilled in June 20th as the date for its marquee Newcastle event.
Last week the local authority began a £25,000 search for suppliers to support the delivery of its annual events programme for 2020/21. Other festival dates were also listed through the provision of ancillary services and personal.
As well as the Festival of Flight, the tender includes Footsteps in the Forest in Slieve Gullion (date to be confirmed) Warrenpoint’s Wake the Giant (29th & 30th August) Halloween in Newy (30th October) Hallowtides in Newcastle (31st October)
Narnia in Kilbroney Park (A date to be confirmed in November) Newry Christmas tree lights switch on (19th November) Downpatrick Christmas lights switch on (20th November) and the St Patricks day events in Newry and Downpatrick (17th March 2021)
The successful tenderer will have to supply each event with a range of items and services, including generators, porta-loos, pedestrian barriers, electricians, and general labourers.
