HELLO

!!!!

Welcome to 2013 Truro & Penwith College Fal River Festival. Now in its eighth year, this unique Cornish festival is a celebration of life on the Fal River. This stunning river, steeped in rich history and heritage, runs through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty linking Truro and Falmouth. The river helps the economy in this small corner of the world thrive and grow stronger year on year. It is enjoyed by thousands of visitors and cherished by the people who are fortunate enough to live here. This 10-day festival celebrates everything that makes the river an inspiration to so many people. You’ll find art, music, drama, sport, food, walks, history, culture and more - all linked by a love of the river. The Festival offers something for people of all ages and we hope that you will explore, discover and celebrate in its magic with us. Tommy Tonkins Festival Director
