Fitness on The Beach

It is with sadness that the organisers of the Falmouth Spring Festival announce that this year’s event, due to take place from the 19th to the 29th March has been cancelled.

The decision is made in respect of the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak across the UK.

A good deal of time, energy and planning has gone into the 2020 event and the team would like to thank a number of partners for their commitment and understanding, in particular the University of Exeter, Falmouth Town Council, Plastic Free Falmouth, town businesses, Greenyard Flowers, Cormac, our local schools and resident community groups.

This is an unprecedented time and we thank you for your understanding in what is for all of us, a challenging environment.

 Plans are very much in place to host the colourful Falmouth Spring Festival in 2021 and the dates for that will be announced in due course.

Thank you

Falmouth Town Team
