May Events Tintagel and North Cornwall


Bude and Stratton Folk Festival

Date: 24 to 27 May / Time: See below

Bude & Stratton Folk Festival is a small, friendly and very welcoming folk festival in the picturesque seaside town of Bude and nearby Stratton in North Cornwall.

An entirely acoustic festival (apart from the ceilidhs), the festival offers a broad mix of singers, dancers and musicians.
The festival is fast gaining a reputation on the folk circuit as a great little festival that offers a good mix - Local folk entertainers ensure that the people coming into the town for the festival see some of what Cornwall has to offer and entertainment from further afield gives the locals a taste of what's going on outside Cornwall.

The emphasis is always on enjoyment and participation - to this end a good range of sessions are offered, dances and dancers and sing-arounds..... it's a bit like a fringe festival..... with concerts, workshops and a Music Hall.

Being a seaside town, there is always the big shanty sing included in the programme.

This year sees an extended range of walks and activities for you to pick and mix from. Something for all ages and abilities.

Join one of our experienced and informed local guides on a ramble to waterfalls or steep climbs to Cornwall’s highest coastal cliff top, or meander along the country lanes and pathways that would have been familiar to the writer Thomas Hardy, whose life-changing visit to Boscastle produced poetry regarded by many as amongst the finest in the English language.

As well as walking, a range of events including Cream Teas and special ‘Meal deals’ will be available. The Festival Dinner has limited places available on a first come first served basis.

Booking for all walks is essential.

Bude Christmas Fayre
Every December

This year, the fayre will be hosted across both the Parkhouse Centre and The Castle in Bude.

There are lots of things to do and see, for the whole family to enjoy, including our exciting Christmas Tree competition, sponsored by Toymaster in Bude.

There is a big focus on children and families for the event this year – with Santa himself attending the fayre.

Santa and his grotto will be based upstairs in The Castle, ready to meet both naughty and nice children. And, whilst children wait to meet him, they can post their Christmas wish list in the magic post box – which goes straight to North Pole.

Santa will be giving out wooden Christmas tree decorations that children can choose to decorate downstairs in the Christmas arts and crafts room. Once decorated, you’ll have a lasting token and reminder of your day to show off proudly on your Christmas tree year after year!

The Christmas Fayre will continue over in the Parkhouse Centre, with plenty of stalls to browse, from a range of local businesses. So please do come on down and support local!

There will be live music too, with Christmas songs and carols, and if you’re hungry, there will of course be the usual mulled wine and mince pies, but also roasted horse chestnuts, and even stone baked pizzas!

Free entry for all ages.
