    Falmouth Week - Falmouth

    Falmouth Week

    What’s it all about?

    Falmouth Week has grown into the largest sailing regatta in the south west with more than 450 yachts racing over eight days along with a lively programme of shore side events. Overlooking the third deepest natural harbour in the world and surrounded by the picturesque beauty of the Carrick Roads waterways, Roseland Peninsula and South Cornish coastline, Falmouth’s amphitheatre-like setting is the ideal locale for visitors to enjoy the spectacle.

    What happens?

    Six days of match racing for keelboats, traditional craft and dinghies in the waters off Falmouth Bay, the Carrick Roads and the harbour. Wednesday is Champagne Day, a race for the big yachts with a 25 mile coastal course finishing in the inner harbour, whilst smaller boats race in the Carrick Roads.

    Full programme HERE.

    How can you take part?

    Apart from watching the exciting sailing on the water, on the shore there are activities to keep everyone entertained from a marching carnival and a firework display to themed party nights and samba bands. In Events Square there’s a daytime artists and Cornish crafts market as well as free fun for all the family at  the “Science in the Square” on Friday, while in the evening you’ll find a great line up of music acts. There are daily live performances on the Prince of Wales pier featuring music, street theatre and dance, you’ll find a local market in the marquee on The Moor and you can take a fascinating guided history walk around Falmouth. Take a trip on the water to watch the evening gig boat racing close at hand or for the more gung-ho show off your athletic side in The Trident Swim Challenge from Gyllynvase Beach. Activities for the kids include free rock pooling sessions and special events at the National maritime Museum, Gyllyngdune Gardens, and Pendennis Castle.

    Fowey Regatta & Carnival Week

    What’s it all about?
     
    For one week each August the usually tranquil town of Fowey attracts thousands of visitors who flock there for the Fowey Royal Regatta, one of Britain’s premier sailing events. It is also a fun-filled week for all the family – sailors and landlubbers alike.

    What happens?

    Sailing boats of all shapes and sizes race in the river and out in the bay. Other main events include the Carnival on Wednesday evening, with a colourful parade of floats, walkers in fancy dress and marching bands,  fantastic firework displays over the river, live music on the Town Quay, and away from the sailing, raft and gig racing as well.

    Please Note: The Red Arrows will not be appearing in 2018

    How can you take part?

    Over the many years the Regatta has been running, the regatta has attracted many visitors, including Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Queen Elizabeth II and is recommended as a must see event by Debrett’s, the authority on all matters of taste. Fowey’s location, perched above a magnificent harbour, provides a natural arena to watch the sailing from and in the town’s winding old streets you’ll find plenty of activities to entertain. There’s the traditional crowning of the carnival queen followed by the floral dance, you can compete in the crab catching and swimming competitions, experience the giant pasty ceremony, get caught up in the exuberance of the carnival, watch the magical torch light dinghy procession on the water and spend the evenings on the harbour listening to performances ranging from The Last Night of the Proms to rock.

  • Wadebridge

    Folk Festival - Wadebridge

    46th Cornwall Folk Festival

    The 46th Cornwall Folk Festival takes place 23rd-27th August 2018 in Wadebridge, north Cornwall. This year the line up was already booked and tickets were on sale when an amazing opportunity to add, as additional gig to the 2018 Cornwall Folk Festival, Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame member Gretchen Peters.  Named by the Telegraph as one of the best female singer-songwriters of all time, her 2016 album Blackbirds went in straight at Number One in the UK Country Charts.

    What happens?

    The festival takes place at various venues in Wadebridge and the whole town is alive to the sound of music. Not only is there an international line up of folk from Cornwall and  Brittany and the USA but you’ll also find singers and instrument workshops, street entertainment, tune sharing sessions and children’s games and face painting.

    How can you take part?

    Get in the groove and join in the fun at concerts, ceilidhs, sessions and workshops. Cornwall benefits from some of the best weather in the UK but the Folk Festival differs from all others in that there’s the added advantage of all venues being undercover and in the warm. So if it's raining outside there's no problem as you can kick back and listen to some great folk music whilst sampling local Cornish food and enjoying a wide choice of Cornish real ales and ciders.

    The organisers of Newlyn Fish Festival have announced the introduction of a fallow year in 2018 to enable them to develop the popular annual fundraiser for the Fishermen’s Mission into an even more dynamic celebration of the sea, Cornish seafood and Cornwall’s proud fishing heritage in 2019.

    Two quintessential Newlyn Fish Festival traditions will be observed in 2018, however, during the evening of Sunday 26 August.

    The Board of Newlyn Fish Festival Ltd and staff from the Fishermen’s Mission will gather at Newlyn Green to lay a wreath of remembrance at the Fishermen’s Memorial and read out the names of the many Cornish fishermen who have been lost at sea since 1945.

    Following a traditional Blessing of the Fleet and remembrance service, there will be the usual Last Night of the Proms-style celebration of Cornish songs at The Newlyn Centre complete with pasty supper. For further information and tickets, visit WEBSITE

  • Wadebridge

    Folk Festival - Wadebridge

    46th Cornwall Folk Festival

    The 46th Cornwall Folk Festival takes place 23rd-27th August 2018 in Wadebridge, north Cornwall. This year the line up was already booked and tickets were on sale when an amazing opportunity to add, as additional gig to the 2018 Cornwall Folk Festival, Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame member Gretchen Peters.  Named by the Telegraph as one of the best female singer-songwriters of all time, her 2016 album Blackbirds went in straight at Number One in the UK Country Charts.

    What happens?

    The festival takes place at various venues in Wadebridge and the whole town is alive to the sound of music. Not only is there an international line up of folk from Cornwall and  Brittany and the USA but you’ll also find singers and instrument workshops, street entertainment, tune sharing sessions and children’s games and face painting.

    How can you take part?

    Get in the groove and join in the fun at concerts, ceilidhs, sessions and workshops. Cornwall benefits from some of the best weather in the UK but the Folk Festival differs from all others in that there’s the added advantage of all venues being undercover and in the warm. So if it's raining outside there's no problem as you can kick back and listen to some great folk music whilst sampling local Cornish food and enjoying a wide choice of Cornish real ales and ciders.

  • Bodmin & Wenford Railway

    Cornish Summertime & Steam - Bodmin & Wenford Railway

    Bodmin & Wenford are hosting two evenings of food and entertainment celebrating Cornish summertime with heritage steam travel and home grown produce and talent!

    For the 20th July event we welcome The Kitchen, Atlantic Brewery and The Grenaways.
     
    Food for the evening will be provided by Ben and Rory from The Kitchen, Falmouth. The best way to understand what The Kitchen is all about is to let them describe it in their own words."In Cornwall, the larder stretches from the sea to the shoreline, from the land to woods. So we don’t import anything, and most is on the doorstep. All freshly grown, shot or foraged" Sounds good to us! With a meat and a vegetarian option, the menu is still to be confirmed, but to quote Rory: “The only known is that it'll be Lamb from the Cornish Lamb Co (really amazing, organic farm; the lambs are left to prong in the fields with their families and grow a little older).
     
    The team from Atlantic Brewery will also be on hand with a fully stocked bar and the chance to sample their full array of delicious tipples.
     
    Entertainment will come from The Grenaways, the band will be playing as an acoustic trio with a mellow set and then something to liven things up later in the evening.
     
    For the 31st August event we welcome Jamie Oliver's Fifteen who will be bringing along friends from Sharp’s Brewery, Polgoon Vineyard & Orchard and Tarquin’s Cornish Gin.
    They will be offering a ‘totally Cornish’ four course menu including canapes, starter, main course (with a vegetarian alternative) and dessert.
     
    The evenings start from 6pm.
     
    Tickets are £49.50 per person including food, entertainment, steam train travel and the chance to sample a selection of drinks. There will also be a bar available.
    Please advise whether you require meat or vegetarian (or have any special dietary requirements) when booking.


     

  • Paradise Park & Jungle Barn

    Red Panda Ranger Month - Paradise Park & Jungle Barn

    This August children can become Red Panda Rangers at Paradise Park.

    Complete the answers and claim your exclusive Red Panda Ranger badge on this fun and educational quiz. Learn about these endangered animals in the wild and the individual characters who live at the Park.

    Paradise Park is home to a family of these adorable bamboo loving pandas. Mum Jai-Li, her daughter Scarlet and companion Suri along with Dad Lang Za.

    Just like Giant Pandas, Red Pandas have an extra “thumb”, which is actually an enlarged bone designed to grab and hold bamboo stems, and they can eat up to 200,000 bamboo leaves daily!

    Red Panda Keeper Donna Sinclair comments “Find all the answers and claim your Red Panda Ranger star badge which we have created with the official Red Panda Network logo!

    We will be encouraging the pandas to come down from trees, so people can see them better, plus show off some of their training which helps when the vet comes in to do health checks.

    There will also be souvenir items available to purchase with money raised going to the special project to support a ‘Red Panda Protected Forest’ in Nepal, run by the www.RedPandaNetwork.org.”

    Our Red Panda Experiences are so popular now that the summer is just about booked out and there is a waiting list. We make donations on behalf of every Red Panda fan who takes part and since 2017 have sent the amazing sum of £5,600 to help their conservation in Nepal.
