Council events

All Council managed events have been cancelled with immediate effect until the end of June.

The decision was taken in line with the wider actions being taken in response to the global outbreak of Covid-19.  Public health and safety is of paramount importance and this action, although disappointing to many, will assist in the efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus and protect the audiences and local communities, the participants and events staff.

Council will continue to review the situation and is preparing and planning for the delivery of events when it is safe to do so.

The cancelled events are Ballymoney Spring Fair, Easter Street Theatre, NW 200 Fireworks and Concert, Rhythm of the Bann, Rathlin Sound Maritime Festival and the Bushmills Salmon and Whiskey Festival.

In the interim, if you have any queries, please contact

Events and use of Council land

Further to this, in a bid to help slow down the spread of coronavirus and reduce the impact on our local communities all events which were to take place on Council  owned land are currently suspended.

Event organisers who had applied to hold an event on Council land in the coming weeks and months are advised that these are now suspended until further notice.

We will not be accepting any new applications to use Council land at this time. 

We would like to thank the public for your ongoing understanding and support at this time.
