Newcastle 2020 cancelled

Unfortunately the Newcastle Festival of Flight on 20th June has been cancelled. This was no doubt a hard decision but the correct decision in these trying times.

Roll on 2021!


Statement from Visit Mourne Mountains

Following careful consideration of the government’s ongoing response to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is with great regret that Newry, Mourne and Down District Council have had to take the decision to cancel this year’s Festival of Flight, due to take place on Saturday 20 June 2020.

In response to the announcement, Council Chairperson Councillor Charlie Casey said, “The Council acknowledges the economic impact that this event brings to Newcastle and the wider-region and the huge-amount of planning and preparation that is undertaken by our partners including the blue-light services.”

“We will continue to review plans for this year’s tourism events’ programme on an ongoing basis and in-line with guidance from the Public Health Agency.”
