Falmouth Week is a major attraction for locals and visitors alike. With its origins as a local sailing regatta dating back at least as far as 1837, the week has evolved into not only a major sailing competition in the Southwest but also an opportunity for sailors and landlubbers to enjoy the many daytime and evening events in the picturesque seaside town of Falmouth in Cornwall. All information on the activities taking place can be seen via www.falmouthweek.co.uk
There is so much to see and do throughout the week…
You can expect family friendly activities in the heart of Falmouth town on The Moor, with everything from a large interactive gaming screen to a 40-foot Victorian carousel, alongside an eclectic market and buzzing atmosphere! Head to the harbour to view the various sailing races on the water from Sunday to Saturday. Alternatively, you can view the sailing from the banks of the River Fal or Pendennis headland, both equally showcase the spectacular scenery Falmouth has to offer.
Falmouth Week definitely pulls it out the bag when it comes to the evening entertainment. With themed evening events ranging from the famous 80s and 90s night to the RNLI Fun Day, there is a jam-packed night-time schedule put together by Southwest Bars and Events. Not to mention the marching carnival, firework display, red arrows, craft markets and daytime music and entertainment across the town, there really is something for everyone!
