We may not have the large-scale concerts or the week-long festivals here in Cornwall, however what we do have is incredible smaller scale events featuring the best food, drink and music around. Easter is just around the corner and each month more and more local events are scheduled, here is our line up of the top 5 happening in the month of April…
- Porthleven Food Festival, April the 20th – 22nd
Celebrating its 10th year, this 3-day food, music and drink festival based in the pretty harbour town of Porthleven, is a must for the foodie fans among us. Chef demos, street stalls and music all day and evening, this festival is fun for the whole family. For more information head to porthlevenfoodfestival.com
- Thundercat Championships, 21st & 22nd April
If you have never been to see a Thundercat race you are in for a real treat. Face paced and exhilarating up to 14 boats will race the waves of Fistral Beach in Newquay, reaching heights of up to 20ft. Head over to the North coast to watch rounds 3 and 4 in the 2018 championships. For more information, click here.
- Wine Tasting at The Rosevine, 14th April
Back by popular demand, Saturday the 14th April join us and our wine merchant Charles for an evening of great food, plenty of wine and a lot of laughter. The evening begins either fireside or out in the garden (fingers crossed for sunshine), with a few light-hearted tasting games. Once everyone has had a few samples, we all sit down to enjoy a 3-course dinner cooked by Head Chef Tim and paired by Charles. Always relaxed and informal and always plenty of wine, these enjoyable evenings are not to be missed. Click here for more info.
- Tregothnan Charity Open Weekend, 21st & 22nd April
Cornwall’s largest garden opens to the public for just one weekend a year, raising money for charity. “Visitors can experience Tregothnan’s unequalled diversity of trees, historic, botanical and rare collections, sweeping vistas and peaceful secluded groves on the banks of the beautiful River Fal.” For more information and tickets, click here.
- Band Night at The Brewery, 13th April
“On 13th April, Josh Curnow, Cornwall’s very own Britain’s Got Talent’s Semi Finalist will be playing “At The Brewery.
