Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Charlie Casey said, “Each year the Festival of Flight attracts over 80,000 visitors into Newcastle and the wider Mournes region. 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.”

Councillor Charlie Casey continued, “The Council’s priority at this time is to support the ongoing response to the Covid-19 pandemic that is being delivered each day across government and society. It is with great regret that this decision has had to be made, but it has been made in the best interests of our local residents, visitors, festival participants and event partners including the PSNI, Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, RLNI, RAF, air-display teams, the local media, the event sponsors and the many local tourism and hospitality businesses in Newcastle that support the event each year.

Step back in time to the halcyon days of motor racing at Goodwood. Revival is not just a celebration but a recreation of the 'Goodwood Years'. Come in period dress and be part of the festival with period car and motorcycle racing, flying and static air displays of pre-1966 craft. Entry by advance ticket only - no tickets on the gate.

We will continue to review plans for the Goodwood Revival, in the hope that the event will go ahead as planned on September 11-13th. (Message dated 26th March).
