What’s on: Thurs 15 – Wed 21 Sept
Decisions decisions! So much going on this weekend I need a cloning potion to do it all – or extra arms and legs. Do me a favour and hit one of these events up, then let me know what fun I missed.
Pizzas, mods, rockers, eyebrows, silent disco yoga (yep that’s a thing!) music, more cider and foooood, all stacked up in Muddy’s marvelous calendar of daily events (full calendar for the weeks ahead HERE) – search by category or by town.There are no upcoming events at this time.
Multiple day events are listed below. Enjoy x
Circus Funtasia, St Austell Thurs 15 – Sun 18 Sept
What is a circus funtastia? Yep I had to do my research. It’s a 100% all human travelling circus featuring a dazzling assortment of acts that will both amaze and amuse. A mixture of acrobatic, comedy and aerial feats, motorbike globe riders, and a death defying wheel of death – not a man eating lion or flying elephant in sight. This band is a far cry from circuses of yesteryear – the big top is even heated for seasonal cosiness. There are two shows a day between now and sunday.
5pm and 7:30pm Circus Funtasia, Circus Field, Truro Road, St Austell, PL26 7DS
Newquay Fish Festival, Newquay Harbour Fri 16 – Sun 18 Sept
I love the fact that Cornwall is THE county for festivals – I must have been to one a week since May – last week cider, this week fiiiiish (and seafood). See top telly chefs and locals demonstrate how to make the most of the bounty on our doorstep. Entertainment comes in the form of a sandcastle competition and ‘fishy’ encounters organised by the nearby Blue Reef Aquarium, harbour entertainment, refreshments, arts, and crafts for all the family. Proms, ceihli and lots of singing for you too.

Wild baking and foraging weekend, Penwith Sat 24 and Sun 24 Sept
Oh I love a collab, especially when cake is involved. This one has to be the trifecta of cakey goodness: The Fat Hen Cookery School, Peboryon Cakes and wild foodie Caroline Davey are joining forces to bring you two wonderful days of foraging, baking and creating. Under the expert tutelage of wild food expert Caroline, you will forage for ingredients from the landscape. She will help you identify plants and wild delicacies throughout your walk – covering the variations of size, texture, colour, taste and more. You’ll also enjoy tips on cooking your freshly foraged delights – but also cover all the potentials mistakes and look-a-like plants!
Returning to The Fat Hen you’ll be let loose in the kitchens, under the expert eye of the gourmet bakers of Peboryon. You will also learn to create a beautiful design with acclaimed cake designers Christine Jensen, who – along with her husband Phil – create some of the most beautiful cake creations from their studio in Penzance.
This two day course includes all refreshments, lunch, transport to and from lodgings, ingredients all equipment and.. plenty of cake.
