“It’s one of the events we most look forward to in the Cornish calendar. I’ll be behind the bar during the weekend, and look forward to seeing everyone there.”
Top chefs will be there to offer daily cooking demonstrations, inspiring festival-goers to get involved and indulge in the tastes of native oysters, wines, real ales and local produce.
The festival will include live music, arts and crafts, wines, ales, bars, seafood bars, Working boat race, The Grand Oyster Parade, a shucking competition, a grand oyster draw and most of all; oysters as far as the eye can sea.
