Last minute May events in Cornwall

Hello everyone, it's Paxo.

Hopefully I'll be seeing a lot of you who have booked last minute caravans UK over the May bank holiday and half term.

And to save you guys the time researching what's going on in Cornwall, here is my pick of events throughout the remainder of May...


Pendennis Cup - 26 May – 31 May

The fourth Pendennis Cup takes place in Falmouth, 15 miles south from Perran View Holiday Park, from 26th – 31st May.

The regatta, organised by Pendennis Shipyard and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, will bring at least 11 beautiful superyachts to Falmouth Bay for four days of intense sailing.

Pendennis Point is the best spot to watch the races, but you might want to wander shore-side for more things to do, like experiencing the best in Cornish cuisine.

The event concludes with an impressive display by the Red Arrows.


Tuff Enuff & TuffFEST - 25 May

The coast 5 miles from Kenegie Manor stages Cornwall's first high endurance extreme obstacle course, Tuff Enuff.

Tuff Enuff races are unique and will really test your body and your mind. In the main race you'll have to tackle over 30 natural and man-made obstacles over 12k of coastline, woodland, farmland and icy cold Cornish Sea!

If, like me, you don't like the idea of extreme exercise on your late holiday deals UK, there is TuffFEST – a free family festival running alongside the main race.

There will be a programme of live music, plenty of inflatables for the kids, a beer tent, skateboarding displays and yummy food stalls.


Pirates On The Prom - 26 May

The 26th May is a special day for two reasons this year!

Firstly it's our very own Kenny's birthday (we won't ask how old he's going to be hehe). Secondly, if you're staying at Kenegie Manor you could be going home from your late deals UK as a Guinness World Record holder!

You can be part of a 20,000 strong crew at Pirates On The Prom, an event which aims to bring back the record for the most pirates in one place, to Penzance – all while supporting the RNLI.

Fal River Festival - 23 May – 01 June

Those spending May half term at Perran View Holiday Park will want to add a day out at the Fal River Festival to their itinerary.

The 10 day festival, which was established back in 2006, embraces the area, people, culture, history and industry associated to the very Cornish Fal River.

Dozens of locations around the river host over 150 events, including jazz bands on the harbour, film screenings on ferries, street theatres, gig racing, swimming and seafood demonstrations to get your taste buds tingling.
