Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival
16 - 18 June
The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival was founded in 2003 by Falmouth Shout, a group of singers whose mission is to keep alive the history of Tall Ships and the days of sail by performing sea shanties, songs of the sea and Cornish songs.
The Festival's aims are to raise money for the RNLI and to preserve and promote the maritime heritage of the area.
The Shanty Festival now takes place at the same time as the Falmouth Classics Regatta, the synergy of Classic Boats and Sea Shanties produces an event which provides an ideal opportunity to bring the Town and the Sailing scene closer together.
Falmouth Classics Regatta 2017
16 — 18 June
The camaraderie of the best Classic Boat Rallies comes to Falmouth. The three day event, Falmouth Classics, brings the competitors together in one area in close proximity to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival.
Classic boats from many parts of the country, the continent and the local area take part in this Classics event, with boats built as long ago as 1882 and lovingly restored taking their place alongside many more launched before the Second World War and other more modern versions of the classic designs.

Miracle Theatre present The Third Policeman at BF Adventure
Written by Flann O'Brien
Adapted by Bill Scott, Meiert Avis and Robert Bayley
This summer Miracle ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and the Marx Brothers, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped and night is actually an accumulation of black air; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden in the heart of rural Ireland.

Find the time Exhibition at Natioanal Trust Trelissick.
Until Sunday 25 June
The exhibition, is a journey from the 1750s when wealthy landowner, John Lawrance, converted the original farmhouse into a villa, to 1955 when former MP, Ida Copeland, gifted the estate to the National Trust.
Over the intervening three hundred years Trelissick families have made and lost fortunes, managed the land, sailed the sea, fought Fascism and always championed this beautiful part of Cornwall.
The story of Trelissick is told through sixteen original craft objects, each inscribed with a piece of history and designed by local artisans from the Cornwall Craft Association. The objects are made from natural materials, celebrating Trelissick's love of the countryside.
You can look at, read, handle, try on and play with the objects and there is a children’s Find the Time trail too
