Newquay Fish Festival 2016




Forget the horrors of Newquay's stag and hen do weekends - the 2016 Fish Festival is in town...


which means thousands of people flock to enjoy...


three days of fishy fun for the family...
 


along with the fishermen of Newquay who make it all possible...


the huge marquee provides a great cooking stage kitchen for popular local chefs like...


Aaron Janes from the Harbour Fish and Grill ably assisted by the unflappable Kosta... 


while at the other end, the main music stage provides interludes from the likes of the Figurehead Singers...


throughout the festival there is plenty of support for sustainable fishing...


looking after the environment...


showcasing the fantastic work by the Newquay Marine Group...


while every visitor it seems tried some grilled Cornish sardines as the boys ran out of them by Sunday afternoon!...


apart from fishing Newquay is famous for its surf...


and family holiday hotels...


entertainment included...


Shakespeare in a Shed!..


maybe he's gone fishing...


Newlyn fisherman Dick Edes is a regular contributor here explaining how a traditional withy lobster pot is constructed...


or a dozen or more different Cornish Meadow preserves...


the port is famous for its shellfish like these crabs tucked away in a store pot...


keeping an eye on things...


the evening ended with a Last Night of the Proms...


with the audience in fine voice, their whistles wet by cold ales and warmer beverages...


the local RNLI station will get the benefit of a charity dinner...
