Falmouth Food Festival set to take place from 26th - 28th May

A view of Falmouth in Cornwall The first-ever Falmouth Food Festival is set to take place between May 26th and the 28th after co-founders Barney and Harry, who were both born in Falmouth, decided to combine their passion for food, drink and events. Backed by FALMOUTH CREATES, the collaborative team curated by the award-winning Falmouth Business Improvement District (BID), the event will be held in Church Street Car Park's lower section. With incredible harbour views, it has become one of the key event spaces in Falmouth.

Barney and Harry secured an annual slot within the town's enviable events programme, and over the three days from 10 am to 8 pm, there will be an eclectic mix of quality cuisine, music and arts, all with a strong Falmouth and Cornish provenance and the event is free to attend. With experience in Cornish food festivals and the running of successful companies within the community, they have placed a firm focus on supporting local businesses. They also have a longer-term plan to make this one of the most anticipated dates on the calendar, and are  excited to get everyone together on the Falmouth waterfront!

Expect to sample Cornish food vendors such as The Cornish Italian, Falmouth-based Restaurant Mine, and Dank Franks Gyros, as well as a maker's tent filled with local creatives and their work. The inaugural event will be sponsored by Verdant Brewing Co, who will be stocking the bar with locally brewed beers. There'll be chef demos and conversations with Annie Seabourne, wine tasting from The Bimbling Barrel and gin talks from Loveday Gin will be on offer. There will also be a lovely champagne and oyster bar hosted by local Falmouth business The Orgia. Bands such as Penny Eyes, Robyn Alvarez and True Foxes will also help to keep everyone entertained over the weekend.

Co-founder of Falmouth Food Festival, Barney Farnworth said: "Like so many who grew up in this area, we have a genuine passion for our home town. Out of this came the idea to create something new and exciting that Falmouth could be proud of. We wanted to curate an event from a locals' perspective and include aspects of what makes this place special such as great food, music, art, community and culture."

Richard Wilcox, executive director of Falmouth BID added: "Falmouth's enviable festival calendar gets bigger and better every year, delivering major economic and social benefits for the business community, our residents, and visitors. The much-anticipated return of Falmouth Tall Ships in August which we as a Town Team will seek to deliver in addition to many other projects and despite the current challenging climate, will strongly evidence that. We're a dynamic destination, always looking to punch well above our weight, a result of developing highly productive partnerships. We wish Harry and Barney all the best with this new quality-led foody venture."
