This will be the eighteenth year that the Cornish fishing village of Polperro has celebrated all that is great about local culture and community and this year intends to be the best yet. grecja last minute
We have nine days and nights of activities, shows, exhibitions and classes to give both residents and visitors the chance to experience new ideas and old ones in a completely different way. This year not only will you be able to listen to great music, view art by local artists, enjoy some fantastic food and drink, you will also be able to have a go at things yourself.
Due to problems with the printers the Festival programme is unusually late this year.
To help visitors we have therefore put a low resolution version of the programme on online..

For the festival we are laying on an Art and Artists day where you will be invited to visit exhibitions and talk to local artists about their work. You might even get a chance to have a go yourself.
Details of the Art and Artists day will be found in the official programme on sale soon (eta canada).

Cornwall has a great tradition of folk dancing and has a fine reputation for Morris dancing which is practiced all over the south west.
Part of the Polperro festival tradition is the annual visit from Morris Dancers coming from both across Cornwall and Devon. They are particularly active on the weekends of the festivals and ad-hoc performances can pop up all over the village at any time.
You never know, if you are really good they may let you join in!
Polperro is rich with excellent food and drink, ranging from locally caught fish to locally brewed beers and cider, including real Cornish Scrumpy.
While you will be able to sample excellent food right through the festival week, this year we are laying on a special day to celebrate Cornish cuisine, old and new.
While you will get the chance to taste traditional pasties and cream teas, you will also get the opportunity to taste some of our more contemporary culinary efforts.
Details of this event will be in the official programme out soon
