Cultural Cornwall with the Fowey Festival of Words and Music

If you're planning a stay in one of the many 5 star cottages in Cornwall this spring, there's an excellent cultural event coming up: the Fowey Festival of Words and Music.

This is the first year of the rebranded festival, it was previously known as the du Maurier Festival, and organisers are hoping that it'll be the best yet. The annual event looks to celebrate literary creativity of all forms and includes a wide selection of entertainment and educational activities. Visitors will be able to enjoy talks, exhibitions, performances, workshops, guided walks and community activities, all based around the spoken word.

The literary festival makes for a great way to explore the historic town of Fowey too, along with the surrounding countryside, which has provided a rich source of inspiration for many writers.

If you’re interested in seeing the event for yourself, it takes place from May 8th – 18th.
