This year see's Polperro Festival celebrates its 25th. anniversary and is linked to the ancient tradition of celebrating the coming of summer. The week long, free festival, includes the lighting of The Solstice Bonfire, comedy night and culminates in the mock Mayor elections. The winner is wheeled through the town, taking a drink in every inn before being dunked in the sea. The Green is host to the stage where bands perform throughout the week, the inns also book their own acts.
While there, try some of the wonderful local seafood available from the restaurants and inns. A warm Cornish welcome is gauranteed just a short car or bus ride from Looe and Schooner Point Guest House.
