As we creep into October and summer’s officially over, we notice people start pining for the warm weather and summer fun. But we’re here with some great Cornish autumn adventures to spice up October and make you fall for autumn…
Visit Falmouth’s Oyster Festival
Every year Falmouth plays host to an oyster festival, packed with cooking demos, ale and wine! Watch the parade make its way through the paved streets before you commence oyster tasting outside in the sun, with the refreshing Cornish sea air blowing through your hair and the sound of sea shanties in the background.
Observe the British Stand Up Paddle Surfing National Championships
The British Stand Up Paddle Association (BSUPA) National Challenges will be hosting its annual competition for the seventh year running at Watergate Bay in Newquay. Take a sandy pew while you watch the five-mile long distance race and the exciting performance surfing round.
Take Part in Wild Art Week
Glendurgan Gardens are hosting Wild Art Week at the end of October where there’ll be family fun with pebble pictures, crowns of autumn leaves and other creative opportunities.
Improve Your Gardening Knowhow
The Eden Project will be holding an autumn gardening course on the 3rd of October, which will show you how to manage your horticulture in the autumn months. Perfect for those wanting to brush up on their gardening skills or novices wanting to learn something new.
Take a Cookery Course
Take the ‘Cornwall in a Day’ cookery course at Philleigh Way for all the best tips on how to create some proper Cornish dishes. Take your Cornish cookery knowledge home with you and make pasties like a pro for all of the family.
