If the weather has been rather moody this summer in Newquay, autumn looks somewhat brighter in more ways than one. Whether you visit Cornwall in search of great food, action and adventure or just a spot of top quality beachside loafing with live music, autumn breaks in Newquay are just the ticket. Here are some highlights that are right on our doorstep at the Hotel Bristol, Newquay:
Newquay Fish Festival Events (September 11-13th)Something smells fishy in Newquay this month… in the best possible sense as it happens. Shoaling together a huge mixed catch of Newquay’s tastiest fare, this is an absolute must for anyone who loves sea food.This is not only a brilliant browsing and tasting experience with the many stalls and producers, but a great way to pick up new skills and cooking tips for your own culinary adventures.
Nor is the Fish Fest all about eating, because there are two cracking music events to get your teeth into also. A live orchestra will provide a grand Last Night of the Proms in style on Friday Sept 11th (Tickets £6), while there is also a traditional Cornish Ceili on Saturday 12th. What is a Cornish Ceili? In simple terms, this is a good old fashioned shindig involving lively folk music and dancing. All are welcome, with limited tickets just £5 from Newquay Tourist Information Centre.
