Everything about the convention is a celebration of red hair from the famed carrot tossing championships, to weird and wonderful competitions such as the best red eyebrows and the most freckles per square inch! The highlight of the weekend activities is the crowning of our new ginger King and Queen. But we have lots of other great activities planned such as exhibitions, informative seminars and lots more, all themed around red hair!
Throughout the weekend, will also be raising money and awareness for the work of the Irish Cancer Society. This national charity provides cancer care, support and research and relies entirely on voluntary donations.
We will be updating the page with lots more info on this years event as it materialises, so keep your eyes peeled and your love of gingers alive! This is what we have confirmed so far:
