Running from Friday, June 1 until Sunday, June 10, the ten-day festival, which has become one of the largest in Cornwall, aims to celebrate life in and around the Fal River.

Established in 2006, this year’s Festival will encompass over 150 events and will offer a diverse mix of culture, music, arts, food, literature, drama, industry, events, gardens, sports and history.

Festival director, Toby Budd, said: “The festival offers something for everyone and a chance to engage with life on the Fal and discover some of the river’s history.

“The Fal River is Cornwall most popular visitor destination and the festival is a chance to really celebrate the places, people, history and culture that are connected by this very Cornish river.”

During 2011 around 100,000 people attended events and helped to raise £75k for charity while enjoying 3,000 pints of beer, lager and cider.
