Step Back in Time during Falmouth History Week – 25th February – 4th March

The famous maritime town of Falmouth will be unravelling its rich history during a seven day celebration of Cornish culture.

You’re invited to explore the town’s fascinating past and the characters who once lived and worked there. The week is being supported by The National Lottery ‘Celebrate’ Fund, and all the activities are either ‘free’ or low cost.

During the week, you can expect to discover hidden treasures, learn about the town’s riveting bygone days, participate in fun activities, and attend theatrical performances – it doesn’t matter what age you are or how much you already know about Falmouth’s history; whether you want to sit quietly and contemplate old photographs or get involved and have some fun – this is an event for everyone!


Falmouth History Week is set to include; historical photographic exhibitions, a presentation of Falmouth archives, short talks by local historians, discovery workshops for both adults and children, film shows, cultural performances (music, dance, theatre, and spoken word), Cornish dancing, story-telling, art exhibitions, and even a quiz trail.
