Fal River Festival 2014

We’re sponsoring the Saturday (for the 4th year in succession) of – the Fal River festival, a fantastic not-for-profit 10 day community festival encompassing over 150 events varying from music & drama, the arts & heritage to gig racing, swimming, walking & lots more.

Each year more than 100,000 people attend a range of different events helping raise a whopping £75,000 for charity while enjoying 3,000 pints of ale, lager and cider!

Katie Treseder, our local Property Manager, and marketing manager Adrian Innocent will be flying the HH flag on Events Square (right by the Maritime Museum) all day Saturday. Pop along for a chance to win a signed print of St Mawes by West Country artist Sara Nunan – see flyer above – by subscribing to our newsletter.

Day 2 of the Festival includes the Fal Fish Festival, also on Events Square, where you can see all the delights of Cornwall's very best seafood.

There’s also the Flushing & Mylor Pilot Gig Club Regatta, where you can see traditional pilot gig racing. Racing starts from 10.30am.

Or how about Art in a BOX – for those artistically inclined, you can collect a box from Flushing Village Stores to create your own piece of art in. These will then be stacked as a ʻWall of Artʼ in the window of ʻThe Old Bakeryʼ opposite Flushing Stores, on Trefusis Road.

The festival was established in 2006 and will be running for its 9th year in 2014. It's a chance to embrace the places, people, history, culture, sport & industry that are connected by this very Cornish river. The festival offers something for everyone and is the perfect opportunity to engage with life on the river and discover some of its fascinating history.

We hope to see you there!
