Due to the ongoing (Covid 19) pandemic, the committee made the difficult decision last night to cancel The 2020 North Ronaldsay Sheep Festival. By doing so, we will be protecting the islands community and the sheep festival volunteers.
On behalf of the sheep festival committee, I would like to thank you all for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times.

THE NORTH RONALDSAY SHEEP FESTIVAL
The programme lists all the activities and evening entertainment from the 2019 event.
The 2020 programme will include:
The wall-building day consisting of two 3 hours building and repairing the Grade A listed sheep dyke with a 2-hour lunch break
Tours of the Island Wool Mill
Weaving, Knitting and Felting Workshops
Island Dances with live music
Visitors vs Islanders annual football match
Plus so much more
The Festival is supported by various volunteers together with The North Ronaldsay Trust, The North Ronaldsay Community Association and all those who made everything happen behind the scenes. Without you all, this important festival could not go ahead.
