Call for events in Truro and the Roseland to join with this year's Fal River Festival


The organisers of this year's Fal River Festival are looking to add more events to the bill as they aim to make this year's festival the biggest yet.

And with a number of high profile activities taking place in Falmouth, the team behind the festival are keen to get more people from Truro and the Roseland involved.

Running from Saturday, May 23 until Sunday, May 31, the nine-day festival aims to celebrate life in and around the river Fal.

Festival director, Toby Budd, said: "Since the festival launched in 2006 its gradually increased in size, but this year we're thinking big and we want to add more events to our list.

"We're particularly keen to hear from organisations in the Truro or Roseland areas who have got an event planned during those nine-days and want to bring it into the festival.

"The event will start with a procession of sail down the river carrying the beer from Skinners brewery to the opening ceremony on Events Square.

"In the following nine days we then have a series fantastic events celebrating life on the river closing in St Mawes on May 31 with a number of high profile events, but we want to add even more activities in and around Truro and the Roseland to the bill."

With the festival guide due to launch on April 23, Toby, who can be contacted on 01872 861913, needs to hear from anyone interested by March 31.

He said: "The quicker we hear from people the better, as it will mean we can include their event in the 30,000 guides that are being produced. Any event can register and there is a nominal entry free.

"But even if they come on board afterwards, we can add details to our website - www.falriverfestival.co.uk.

"We're really excited about this year's festival and the events lined up so far.

"It will be half term and there will be a lot of families around and we expect at least 30,000 people will play some part in the festivities, which will give a real boost to the whole area."
