Now in its 14th year, the Newquay Fish Festival has become a highlight of the Cornish calendar, drawing 20,000 people to this lively surfing capital.
Over three days, top chefs from across the region will run demonstrations showing visitors how to produce top-notch fish dishes, with the opportunity to try the delicious results. Other attractions include Shakespeare in a Shed, to mark the Bard’s 400th anniversary, plus an exhibition by Newquay Old Cornwall Society explaining the history of the pilchard fishery that once dominated the area with its cellars and huer’s huts.
In the main marquee visitors can grab a drink and relax with music from local singers and several choirs including the Fishermen’s Wives. In the evenings the marque will host a tradition Ceilli with live music provided by a family that has been hosting these Cornish dances for 200 years.
