Halloween in Cornwall

There are some spooky events happening this half term for all the family across Cornwall. If you are trying to keep young ones amused, or trying to convince older ones it's not that embarrasing to be seen with you, there is something for everyone this October half term in Cornwall. We've put together the list of events below - but all events in October can be seen on our What's On page.

 

The Draw of the Sea

Wyl Menmuir is a Cornish based author whose 2016 debut novel, The Many, was longlisted for the Man-Booker Award. This July he releases his first full-length non-fiction book, The Draw of the Sea, and has written our guest blog about what the sea means to him and those he met while researching the book.

 

A Floating Restaurant and so much more...

Here at Blue River Table we are getting ready to start our summer season and with Tethra (our boat) back in the water, all newly varnished, we are very much looking forward to it. Over the past couple of months we have been doing all the winter jobs aboard Tethra, painting, varnishing, servicing and this year even included fitting her with a shiny new engine!

South West Tourism Awards

Cornwall's best tourism businesses were honoured at the 2021/22 South West Tourism Excellence Awards at Exeter in early April. The awards saw 476 entries from the region including Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Cornwall Tourism Awards review

2022's Cornwall Tourism Awards saw many of our Visit Cornwall members take home prizes and so we feel it is only right that we give them a bit of a push here… 

Malcolm Bell, Head of Visit Cornwall, said at the awards (which were held virtually) “After two very challenging years, it is very exciting and also gratifying to see the dedication of the finalists to drive up quality, despite there being a pandemic with all its twists and turns to cope with, a very big well done to all of you.”

Raise a Glass to the summer!

It's getting to that time of the year when we like nothing more than relaxing in the sun with a nice cold drink...

We have been virtually touring some of Cornwall's best producers of wine, beer, cider and spirits to see what's happening..

What's On 2022

Planning your holiday for 2022? Here's our beginners guide to some of the wonderful events taking place in Cornwall that you might enjoy going along to... and we would hate you to miss them!

The Kernow Way

Wherever we go, and whatever we do, we have an impact. Let's make sure it’s a positive one. Do it #thekernowway. Clean Cornwall is asking Cornish residents, visitors and business owners to consider how we can all minimise our impact as we step into one of the busiest summers we've ever had.

So whether you are a local, or here on holiday.. we all have a shared responsibility to look after this special place.

We call it the Kernow Way

In Cornwall we say 'Doing it dreckly'.
