Just because it’s September doesn’t mean life stops here in Cornwall!
Yes there’s been loads to do over the past few summer months, but Autumn also brings with it it’s own host of events, festivals and fun things to do so don’t panic! I’ve popped a few in a list below so keep an eye out for these over the coming weeks:
Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival
8th – 10th September | Healey’s Cyder Farm, Penhallow
Named the BBC ‘Summer of Music’ Festival for 2017, the Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival will see headline acts such as Scouting for Girls, The Wurzels and Imperial Leisure as well as many more. Last year’s festival was loads of fun, and was a huge success as this year they’ve increased capacity to 5,000 people!
Gyllyngdune Tea Festival
17th September | Princess Pavilion, Falmouth
For lovers of all things tea (not me, but it might be you!), head down to Falmouth for tea tasting, live music, crafts, pop-up entertainment (from theatre performances to dancers) and of course some classic Cornish cream teas. The theme is Mad Hatter’s Tea Party obviously!
Great Cornish Food Festival
22nd – 24th September | Lemon Quay, Truro
An event dedicated to all the amazing food & drink Cornwall has to offer, the Great Cornish Food Festival will be setting up shop on Truro’s Lemon Quay with around 60 exhibitors as well as tasting & sampling sessions, demonstrations and masterclasses. It’s free to attend so pop on over!
Looe Music Festival
29th September – 1st October | Looe Beach
This award-winning festival is set right on the beach has acts including Lulu, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Happy Mondays, Backbeat Soundsystem and The Undertones. It’s set to be a good ‘un!
6th – 7th October | Piazza, Truro
If you love everything German (think beer, lederhosen, bratwurst etc.) then get yourself down to Truro for Oktoberfest. There will be plenty of music and drinking, with the event running late into the night, so find your best outfit and celebrate!
Falmouth Oyster Festival
12th – 15th October | Event Square Falmouth
This specialist seafood event in Falmouth is one of the town’s most loved festivals. There will be food stands & exhibitors (not just oysters, I know they’re not for everyone!), cookery demonstrations and live music and market stalls – again it’s free to wander around.
What will you be getting up to this Autumn?
