Fal River Festival starts this weekend

Now in its 7th year, the annual Fal River Festival celebrates life on the Cornish river over 10 days – The Fal River Festival kicks off tomorrow, a 10-day ‘celebration of life on the river’.

Established in 2006, the annual extravaganza will see more than 150 events taking place, covering music, drama, the arts and heritage, gig racing, swimming, walking and more.

The Fal River Festival traditionally opens with the sailing of the Beer Fleet, which involves crafts of all shapes and sizes joining the fleet of classic ferries to mark the passage of the beer from Truro to Falmouth along the River Fal.

The event, which will run from 24 May until 2 June, is being organised by Truro and Penwith colleges, and last year it attracted more than 100,000 visitors to the area. Being a not-for-profit event, the 2012 festival managed to raise £75,000 for charity while visitors enjoyed 3000 pints of larger, ale and cider.
