Update on the Fowey Festival of Words and Music

November 1st 2013

Fowey Festival of Words -   Saturday 10th May – Saturday 17th May 2014


The du Maurier Festival Society is delighted to announce that the 2014 Fowey Festival of Words and Music will be held between Saturday 10th May and Saturday 17th May. The festival will continue to provide an interesting range of good quality entertainment; literary based interviews, presentations, theatre, music, comedy, academic talks, as well as workshops, exhibitions and local walks; an eclectic mix to inform and inspire the imagination! Workshops and participatory events will be a key feature this year so that you can join in and learn new skills or even improve old ones!


Exciting News! In 2014 there will be a programme of events for children and families to enjoy. Set in the beautiful grounds of Trenython Manor, budding young writers, actors and poets will have the opportunity to participate in various activities themed on the ‘Natural Environment’.  A great chance to ‘Inspire a Generation’ - here in Cornwall.


Events will take place in existing venues in and around Fowey and whilst the Festival Village was a fantastic venue for the last 17 years, financial constraints mean developing a more sustainable model. Changing from a purpose built marquee to existing venues has real benefits including reduced ticket prices, a wider choice of food and drink and non-reliance on the weather!


The Fowey Festival Friends and Patrons scheme for 2014 is now available, it is easier to sign up and there are more rewards. By becoming a Friend or Patron you can benefit from a discount of 10% or 5% off all tickets for events organized by the du Maurier Festival Society Trustees, receive your programme in advance of those on the mailing list and enjoy advance booking for a maximum of 6 seats for an unlimited number of events.

Patrons can join for just £50 and receive 10% discount and Friends will receive a 5% discount for a membership of £20. It is easy to join just go to:  www.justgiving.com/thedumaurierfestivalsociety press  DONATE and sign up as a Patron for just £50 or become a Friend for £20.


Over the next few months there will be more information available and we will keep you up to date with all that is happening.

Lerryn School Gardening Club

October 25th 2013

Thanks to the hard work of Rosemary Weatherhogg, Rita Dunn and Matt Blunt of Lerryn School, the Produce Association is delighted to announce the exciting news that pupils of Lerryn school have set up their own Gardening Club.
However, it has to be said that some of the committee members of the LDPA have rushed off to their potting sheds to prepare for the added competition that this will undoubtedly lead to at next years Produce Show. That said, the strong sense of community has prevailed, and the committee of the LDPA have donated a generous supply of herbs to flavour the wonderful meals that the school veg plot will produce, and also lots of pansy plants to add colour and attract the bees.
Lerryn schoolteacher Matt Blunt, will coordinate the planting and gardening activities, with the support of parents who will help to weed and prepare the ground ready for planting out in the growing season. The LDPA committee will be ready to lend a helping hand and offer guidance.
Indeed, we can all help by collecting and donating Morrisons ‘Let’s Grow - School Gardening’ vouchers (www.morrisons.co.uk/letsgrow). The village shop has kindly agreed to have a collection box available for your vouchers.
The children are enthusiastic about growing things to eat and keen to get started, so your help and support will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Fun with Wine

October 22nd 2013

A capacity crowd in the Red Store on the evening of 11th October had a very happy time sampling wines provided by Experience Wines (now conveniently located in Lostwithiel) and struggling in small teams to answer quiz questions about what they had drunk.

It was interesting to discover what a lot of noise could be generated by a quiz! Nibbles and a raffle were organised by LAMA and the whole evening raised £389 for the bus.

We are very grateful to everybody who supported the event, and especially to the trustees of the Red Store, who expressed their support for LAMA by allowing us to use the facilities free of charge. Many thanks to all!
