We’ve no idea what the final will involve, or even when it is, but we’ll keep you posted on the outcome. In the meantime you can read more about the awards on the link below.

Stranraer Oyster Festival has been a joy to develop and it’s something that everyone in Stranraer Development Trust is incredibly proud of, but our festival is more than that.

The festival simply couldn’t be the amazing success it is without the support of so many volunteers and supporters - including the young people who have enthusiastically supported the event over the years. So being shortlisted for this award is a real pat on the back for everyone in Stranraer – whether you’ve volunteered, traded at, helped promote or simply visited and enjoyed Stranraer Oyster Festival, this recognition is for you and for our wee toon. Thank you.
