Sharp’s set for Mini Fish Festival


Sharp’s Brewery is sponsoring this month’s inaugural Newquay Mini Fish Festival.

The festival, run by The Boathouse, will take place over two days on September 10 and 11. Sharp’s will provide all the beer and cider.

The event will see Jo Ruxton MBE, founder of the environmental organisation Ocean Generation, giving a talk on the importance of ocean conservation. Ruxton has produced films such as A Plastic Ocean and she worked on Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet.

In addition, the Newquay Mini Fish Festival schedule will feature appearances from multiple chefs, including eco-chef Tom Hunt who will be demonstrating sustainable seafood cooking techniques.

Louise Morey of The Boathouse said: “We are really happy to have Sharp’s sponsor the Newquay Mini Fish Festival. It is quite the task setting up and running the event ourselves this year, so the help from Sharp’s is greatly appreciated.

“Festivalgoers of previous years can expect a similar experience of food, drink, and joy, only having it based around the Boathouse itself and not the entire harbour means that it will be more intimate.”
