What’s on this Christmas time in Cornwall’s most popular visitor destination

1 — 31 December 2011

Christmas events, offers, festivities and more encompassing Falmouth, Truro, St Mawes, Helford and The Roseland.

There’s a chill in the air, the early morning mist lingers on the river and the Christmas spirit is waking up across the Fal River; Cornwall’s most popular visitor destination.

Christmas is nearly here and December sees a whole host of different events and activities for everyone to enjoy.

One of the highlights is sure to be the very first Falmouth Christmas Festival; four days of festive food, fun, drink and shopping on Falmouth’s Discovery Quay. The festival runs from Thursday, December 15 to Sunday, December 18.

There’s also the Hall for Cornwall’s pantomime to look forward to as Robinson Crusoe arrives in Truro. It promises to be a swashbuckling, fun-filled family panto for all you landlubbers and buccaneers!

Falmouth’s Princess Pavillion are again boasting an impressive line-up of live music with the delightful Unthank sisters and the ever-popular Seth Lakeman topping the bill.

Cornish Christmas

Staying in Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall are having a Christmas Cracker Supersized Weekend of festive family fun with free entry for all children under 15.

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without carols and Pendennis Castle are having Carols at the Castle on Sunday, December 11 followed by Nadelik: A Cornish Christmas on Sunday, December 18.

Through the month, some of Cornwall’s top hotels and places to eat have a range of special offers to make the festive season even more enjoyable.

And don’t forget, if you need to do any last minute Christmas shopping, there will be extra services on the King Harry Ferry and St Mawes Ferry to coincide with late night shopping in Truro and Falmouth. As a Christmas treat from us there will also be free mince pies on board!
