We can’t wait for our favourite festival of the year! Falmouth Week is back this August and this time we’re celebrating on our private quay.
We are once again proud sponsors of Falmouth Week, and with enviable views over the harbour to watch the yachts racing, our marquee will host various events throughout the week whilst providing a hub for sailing activities. From Friday 9th through to Sunday 18th August, we will be open from midday – 11pm every day.
The Working Boat chefs will be cooking up a storm with our new events menu, which includes scrumptious homemade pizzas fresh from our outdoor pizza oven. Expect performances from the likes of Ten Bob Notes, Me and The Devil, The Oggymen, Falmouth Soul Sensation, plus so much more.
All events are free, and all are welcome. See our breakdown of each day below.
