2017 promises to be an incredible year at Seaview Holiday Village – here are nine highlights we can’t wait to enjoy.
1/ Ever wanted to know how you can take better holiday photos on your mobile phone? We’ll be launching our season-long picture competition at Easter, with expert tips on how to improve your smartphone snaps.
2/ Looe’s Festival of the Sea (4 June) brings together everything from rock pool rambles to marine-themed music and dance. This year, it also celebrates 150 years of the Looe Lifeboat.
3/ The Royal Cornwall Show (8-10 June) in Wadebridge has been going for 223 years and is Cornwall’s biggest annual event. At heart it’s an agricultural show with competitions for all types of animals, but there’s also a flower show, Cornish Heritage Centre, street theatre, fun fair and live music courtesy of BBC Radio Cornwall. It’s a cliche – but there really is something for everyone.
4/ Polperro’s Music Festival (10-18 June) has so much more than live music – there’s comedy, arts and crafts, a solstice bonfire, a colourful carnival and a ceremony to choose a mock mayor.
5/ With choirs and brightly coloured floats; majorettes and sand modelling, Looe Carnival (30 July to 5 August) brings seven-days of fun to the seaside town. Our favourites include the choir singing alfresco by the seafront and the carnival parade with the incredible pipe and brass bands.
6/ For the first time ever, we’re bringing pro wrestling to Seaview Holiday Village. The amazing afternoon of family friendly entertainment kicks off with a training school where kids can get in the ring with the wrestlers, which is followed by the matches between some of the UK’s toughest beefcakes. (August 3, 10, 14, 24 and 28).
7/ Fowey Regatta (13-19 August) has a full programme of sailing races, plus harbour swimming, gig racing and a raft race. There is live music daily and nightly on the Town Quay and fireworks at the start and end. Don’t miss the Giant Pasty that arrives by boat from Polruan, and the town’s Flora Dance where everyone dresses in white and decorates themselves with flowers.
8/ In September some of Cornwall’s most fantastic buildings and estates open their doors for free Heritage Open Days (7-10 September). This is an amazing chance to see fantastic architecture and culture in properties that are usually closed, or charge the public.
9/ Looe Music Festival (29 September – 1 October) has a proud history of attracting big name acts. This year’s headliners are The Jesus & Mary Chain, who will be leading more than 40 bands playing all kinds of music.
