Airth HG[2021] Cancelled

Cancellation of Airth Highland Games 2021
It is with considerable disappointment that the committee of Airth Highland Games are announcing that the Games of 2021, due to take place in July, are now cancelled.
We've been closely monitoring government guidance and the roadmap published outlining the relaxation of
current restrictions. There is very little guidance on what restrictions will be in place for outdoor events this summer, which makes it very difficult to plan how we could hold our event safely for our visitors, athletes & performers. We also have had to consider the impact the last year has had on travel & tourism as a significant number of our visitors travel from all over the world to be at our event.
To everyone who supports us, our visitors, athletes, judges, officials, sponsors & patrons; our sincere regrets and disappointment that we find ourselves again for the 2nd year in this situation.
We would have celebrated our 150th anniversary in July this year, but anniversaries don't need to only focus on one date, instead we'll celebrate our 150th year, culminating at our July 2022 event, which we are determined to be our most spectacular yet.
In the meantime, stay safe & well. Better days are coming for us all.
Best wishes,
Emma Gillanders & AHG Committee
