Stein's & the Greenbank back with a two-day fish festival, part of Fal River Festival.

After confirming plans to open a fish and chip shop in Falmouth celebrity chef Rick Stein has added further support to the town.
Rick Stein's Fish and Chips, along with the Greenbank Hotel, has agreed to sponsor Falmouth's first fish festival which will form part of this year's 10-day Fal River Festival.

Taking place on Sunday 30th and Monday 31st May, organisers are expecting over 5,000 people to attend the two-day fish festival, which will feature a wide range of stalls and cooking demonstrations.

Festival Director, Toby Budd, said: "This is great news for the Fal River Festival."

"We're looking to top 150 events this year and the Falmouth fish festival is another great headline event which is only possible thanks to the help fromour sponsors, the Greenbank Hotel and Rick Stein's Fish and Chips, as well as Falmouth Festivals Ltd who run Events Square."

"The fish festival will be a great opportunity to showcase some of the fantastic seafood that is caught around our coast. The theme of the festival is all about getting people to try fish dishes which they would not normally eat and we will have a range of hot and cold food stalls where visitors can sample a variety of fish and shellfish.''

Visitors will be able to enjoy a range of cooking demonstrations by local chefs.

Kearan McVey, Greenbank Hotel's general manager, said: "We're working in association with Stein's to put a varied cooking  programme together over the two days. All the recipes cooked on the day will be available for people to try at home. We really want people to go away from the event inspired by what they have seen and tasted."

As well as live cooking demonstrations there will be market stalls, live music and a range of other attractions and exhibits for visitors to enjoy.

Rupert Wilson, General Manager at Stein's added: "We are very excited about getting involved and the timing is perfect with the opening of our new Falmouth restaurant this Spring."
