Tom Bawcock's Eve
Every December

An annual event which takes place on this night each year. Tom Bawcock is the legendary fisherman who braved wild seas in order to catch fish to feed a hungry village. He brought home seven different types of fish, a feast for the hungry villagers of Mousehole.

The dish, Starry Gazy Pie, is uniquely Cornish and is so called because the heads of the fish protrude from the pastry as if they are are staring into the sky.

Mousehole, Cornwall.
