Polperro Festival 2013 Overview
Polperro Festival is staged around the beautiful village of Polperro in Cornwall. The festival itself offers free entry to events, whilst local pubs and clubs compliment the main festival with a host of peripheral activities and events for all the family.
This will be the seventeenth 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.
They 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. You will be able to have a go at an instrument, learn to cook fish, take a step with morris dancing, have an art lesson, or even have a go at writing poetry!
Ticket prices (from): Mostly Free!
