Messing about on the river…

The Greenbank Fal River Festival, which will run from May 27th to June 5th, is all about celebrating life on the river Fal in Cornwall.

This fantastic 10 day festival is a not-for-profit community festival, attracting more than 100,000 people to over 150 events ranging from music & drama, the arts & heritage to gig racing, swimming, walking and lots more.

For the third year running, Helpful Holidays will be sponsoring the first Saturday of the festival which is the first full day of the event following on from the launch night on Friday 27th May. Our day will see the popular “Cornwall’s Clubs & Charities” event, or “C3” as it has become known, which enables charities to showcase their services to raise funds and awareness in Events Square.

The festival was established in 2006 and will be running for its 6th year in 2011. It is a real chance to embrace the places, people, history, culture and industry that are connected by this very Cornish river. With its diverse mix of events taking place at dozens of locations around the river Fal, the festival offers something for everyone.

We’re proud to put our name to this excellent event, which is enjoyed by so many and in an area where we have a large number of holiday homes.

You can follow the festival on Facebook and on Twitter. We hope to see you there!.
