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.
We are once again proudly sponsoring the Bay Fleet this year, and 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 10th through to Sunday 19th August, we will be open from midday – 11pm every day.
The Greenbank and The Working Boat chefs will be cooking up a storm on the barbeque and we’ll serve our scrumptious homemade pizzas fresh from our outdoor pizza oven. There will also be an afternoon tea party and live music throughout the week, including performances by Femmes de la Mer, The All Good Things, Patrick Gilbert, The Oggymen, plus so much more.
All events are free, and all are welcome.
