Group discounts

If you’re a member of a group or club (or, just extremely popular!) you can save money by coming to Festival events marked with an asterisk as a group.  For every 10 tickets ordered, you get one free.  So, the more you people you bring, the more you’ll save – and the more fun you’ll have!

Make a day of your visit to the Festival.  This discount applies to all Festival Village events, Fowey Billiard room events and some Fowey Church and Fowey Town Hall events too!

Return To Lyonesse - Mike O’Connor & Barbara Griggs

An event omitted from this year’s printed Festival programme is Mike O’Connor and Barbara Griggs’ performance: Return To Lyonesse - a tale of the lost Celtic lands: Lyonesses, Ys and Cantre’r Gwaelod.

Based on ancient Cornish and Breton texts, Return To Lyonesse is a lively, atmospheric and entertaining show, which is a mixture of powerful oral storytelling and achingly beautiful music.  The performance is preceded by a short illustrated talk on the legendary origins of the tale.

Return To Lyonesse will be performed at Fowey Parish Church on Monday 13th May, 8.00pm.  Tickets cost £8.50 and may be booked online here

That’s all for now.  You can keep up-to-date with all Festival news at our Facebook page and on Twitter: @FoweyFestival1.

See you in May! Best wishes,
