National Maritime Museum Cornwall is 10 years old! Falmouth’s Spring Festival celebrates the town, its people and its heritage and what better way to celebrate our 10th birthday year than supporting this wonderful community event. The Museum belongs to Falmouth, our activities and events are hugely influenced by the people who live here and the community of Cornwall, and over the past decade we have shared many magical moments with the town. Sponsoring this year’s Spring Festival allows us to give something back, to say thank you to everyone who has given us their support and to celebrate all that we have achieved over the past 10 years. Thank you from all the Museum Crew

National Maritime Museum Cornwall


Welcome to the third Falmouth BID funded Falmouth Spring Festival! And I’m delighted to welcome the award-winning National Maritime Museum Cornwall on board as this year’s title sponsor. It’s a privilege to work alongside such a proactive and good quality visitor attraction. Great things planned once again – Falmouth Spring Clean Day, Paint the Town Yellow Day, Run Falmouth, Zumba Zestifal, a host of guided walks, family rockpooling sessions, spring themed exhibitions, plays and talks, I could go on. So I will! This year we have two great new events – the two day Folk & Cider Fayre on Events Square is a must visit, as is the Party in the Park event at Kimberley Park in celebration of the fantastic new play area and art installations.

Scan me for the latest Spring Festival news..

So whether you’re visiting Falmouth from another part of Cornwall or further afield, we hope you have a fantastic time, enjoy the Festival and return to this special part of the world in the near future. Have a good one!
