Let the countdown begin – just four weeks till go to the 3rd Fowey Mussel Festival! This year for the first time there will also be a beer and cider festival, held in the old butter market under the King of Prussia.

The weekend promises demonstrations from top chefs such as James Strawbridge, as well as many others from local restaurants including The Bistro, the Fowey Hotel, Fowey Hall, Sam’s and Trenython.

There’s also plenty of tastings from local food producers – including champagne and oysters – as well as river trips to Fowey’s mussel farm.

The Pirates of St Piran will also be on hand for some sea shanties and public executions and live music will be entertaining the crowds on Friday and Saturday nights.
