Falmouth Week Events Programme at The Working Boat

Our favourite festival is fast approaching, and we can’t wait! Falmouth Week is back this August and this time we’re celebrating on our private quay.

With enviable views over the harbour to watch the yachts racing, our marquee will host various events throughout the week whilst providing a hub for sailing activities. From Friday 9th through to Sunday 18th August, we will be open from midday – 11pm every day.

The Greenbank and The Working Boat chefs will be cooking up a storm with our new events menu, which includes scrumptious homemade pizzas fresh from our outdoor pizza oven. Expect performances from the likes of  Ten Bob Notes, Me and The Devil, The Oggymen, Soul Sensations, plus so much more.
