Whether you live in Cornwall or you are visiting for the summer, there are several activities and events taking place in Cornwall so you will never be bored over the summer.
The events and activities taking place are for anyone from young children to adults, that can be enjoyed together as a family. Below will be some of the events you will be able to attend this summer.
Outdoor Theatre at Bedruthan
If you decide to visit Mawgan Porth whilst in Cornwall, the Bedruthan Hotel and Spa are hosting an Outdoor Cinema for all ages to enjoy. The scenery is also spectacular from the Outdoor Theatre because it is situated where you can see the beautiful bay of Mawgan Porth.
When attending the Theatre, you will be in comfort as rugs and garden cushions are placed across the meadow so you can experience the theatre acts to their fullest potential. If you get hungry, you will be able to purchase hampers full of goodness from the hotel's bakery.
This theatre production starts from the 7th of May to the 23rd of August. The lineup that will perform at the Outdoor Theatre is for all ages such as David Walliams’s Awful Auntie, Rapunzel, A Midsummers Night's Dream, and many more.
Fireworks at Flambards Theme Park
If you are near Helston in Cornwall, Flambards is the perfect place to have a funfilled day out with the family, however, when it turns dark, the firework displace is the event worth waiting for.
The fireworks at Flambards are being set off throughout August for you to go and experience. The rides will still be operating at night whilst the Fireworks make the sky full of colour and light.
Local bands that play across this region will be playing throughout the fireworks to make the display more special.
From the 20th of July to the 9th of October, you will be able to experience the thrill of the Circus Funtasia from many venues in Cornwall that can be found in Bodmin, Helston, and Bude.
This Circus is for all ages with a range of different performances throughout the show. Some of the performances involved aren’t for the faint-hearted as fire breathers will show their talents, the Wheel of Death will be challenged by the acts and even motorbikes are included in the show. If you want to experience some real-time comedy, the show has its very own comedian The Geek. He has previously received awards for his performances to other audiences that loved his humour.
Rock Oyster Festival
The Rock Oyster Festival is a 3-day event that runs from the 29th of July to the 31st of July. This Festival is a memorable experience for all the family.
You will be able to try mouth-watering food from chefs and masterclasses events held at the festival and if you want to spend some real family time together, there’s a zone where all the family can take part in body-boarding, circus skills, and even yoga.
The festival can be located in Wadebridge, Cornwall, and is held at Dinham House. The festival location has some breathtaking views as you will have access to world-class beaches and relaxing beach walks.
Monster Slip and Slide
If your family loves water activities, the Monster Slip and Slide is an activity you need to try. The slip and slide is located near Widemouth Bay, Bude which is just 3 miles from the Devon and Cornwall border. This slip and slide launches on the 16th of July 2022.
The main attraction when visiting the Monster Slip and Slide is the 360ft long slide which spreads across 4 lanes. To go down this slide you can either use their free body boards or rubber rings to go down the slide at a high speed. If you are extra daring, the body boards are the quickest of the two.
If you require a wetsuit, you can hire one to use on the slide for a 1-hour session and it’s £12.50 per person for the hour. If you are hungry before and especially after your session, The Monster Munch team have plenty of snacks for you to choose from.
