Hotel to sponsor oyster festival


St Michael’s Hotel and Spa in Falmouth has been announced as the main sponsor for the Falmouth Oyster Festival for the third year running.

Now in its 15th year, the festival celebrates all things oyster and marks the start of the oyster dredging season.

Taking place from October 13-16, four days of events will include craft and food stalls, live music, cookery demonstrations, working boat races and much more.

St Michael’s proprietor Nigel Carpenter commented: “We have been strong supporters of the Falmouth Oyster Festival for a number of years and are delighted to be the main sponsor again this year.

“Over the years we have developed a close relationship with the Falmouth oystermen and I firmly believe the Oyster Festival is incredibly important in highlighting and celebrating the traditional method of harvesting oysters here in Falmouth.”
