Hillsborough International Oyster Festival cancelled for 2017

It is with regret that we announce that the Hillsborough International Oyster Festival will not be taking place this year. 2017 would have marked the 25th Anniversary of the festival, however due to rising costs and changes in funding agreements the committee has had to take the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.

Over the years the Festival has raised in excess of £600,000 for local charities and we fully appreciate all of the support that the festival has received during this time.

We aim to be back in September 2018, subject to sufficient funding and support which is crucial to help deliver this large scale event, and to enable us to celebrate our 25th Anniversary in true Hillsborough International Oyster Festival style.
