Guest Blog: Why is Cornwall the destination for celebrations and events?
6 October 2016
Nicola from the Rosevine in Portscatho on the Roseland explains...
Over the past few years the events industry has absolutely exploded in Cornwall, now don’t get me wrong there has always been a calendar full of local, musical and charity events.
However now more than ever some of the most sought after celebration spots and diary worthy entries are happening right here on our doorstep.
Rich in talent and unrivalled locations visitors to the area can enjoy events spanning many genres such as music, art, sport and of course food! For example, in the last couple of weeks alone I have watched live music on a beach, danced the night away at a cliff top party, feasted on seafood curry overlooking the sea and attended a private gallery viewing.
So what are the reasons behind the counties event success?
- Talent – Now a much sought after foodie destination Cornwall certainly has talented chefs creating some exciting and unique cooking experiences, but let’s not overlook that we also have some of the best producers and teams working alongside. Venues and pop ups across Cornwall have some incredible staff creating exciting memories and world class experiences for visitors and locals alike. It’s the combination of all three that make Cornish events stand out amongst their slick city counterparts.
- Unbeatable locations – Come rain or shine the Cornish coast will take some beating. There is nowhere quite like it in terms of landscape, views, atmosphere and a content culture.
- Happy memories – So many times do I hear and witness family and friend’s creating happy Cornish memories. Attending events big and small or indeed throwing an event only enhances these memories further. Cornwall has a special place in a lot of people’s hearts which is why so many couples come to Cornwall to hold their big day. See The Knot for more reasons why in and around the Fal River is the perfect spot.
- Community feel – The relaxing and happy atmosphere is down to neighbours, suppliers and friends working together to produce and enjoy celebrations of every type. It’s this buzz and feel around the Cornish lifestyle that has people of all ages returning again and again for a slice of the laid back life.
- Plus, plenty of these…
