On behalf of the Royal Tay Yacht Club, we are disappointed to announce that the 9th Alba Real Ale Festival 2020 will not take place this year. Although it was hoped that the overall situation, with regard Covid 19, would improve, it has become obvious that with any further improvement, it would still be very difficult to guarantee the safety of our festival guests. The amount of work required to satisfy any current rules regarding hygiene and social distancing and how that might be applied to a larger gathering makes it clear we would have found it very difficult. Even with more easing it is likely that fewer people would be comfortable to venture out into a risky situation.
And so it is with heavy heart that we have to inform everybody who was planning to attend, that this years festival will be cancelled. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support over the past 8 years. We will be in touch once we can fully expect to be back in business next year with the 9th Alba Real Festival scheduled to take place in August 2021 when we can look forward to seeing you all again. In the meantime, please stay safe and well.
