Heart of the Glens Festival

Heart of the Glens Festival, Cushendall, Antrim, Northern Ireland

Heart of the Glens Festival is held in and around the village of Cushendall in the the beautiful Glens of Antrim. Cushendall lies at the heart of the Glens, hence the name.

The committee members are sad to announce that they have decided to cancel The Heart of the Glens Festival 2020. This has not been an easy decision but due to Government Guidelines we believe there will be some social distancing in place in August and we would not want to compromise the health and safety of our community and visitors. We are truly devastated, but feel this is the sensible course of action.

It is very much our intention to come back bigger and better next year for The Heart of the Glens Festival 2021 and celebrate our 30th year! Thank you for all your support you have given us throughout the years and your understanding now. We know you will be every bit as supportive next year.

The festival enhances the tourism potential of our village. We welcome all visitors to the Causeway Coast and Glens.

We receive sponsorship from local businesses every year and funding from Causeway Coast and Glens Council.
