Porthleven Food Festival has announced its evening music line up and new theme ahead of its tenth anniversary year.

This year's festival, which will run from April 20 to 22, will run on the theme "Anti Plastic? Fantastic!" after teaming up with the new Refresh Porthleven campaign to cut the use of single-use plastic.

As such, the amount of plastic used at the festival will be minimised, with a water refill and reusable cup scheme in place.

Chairman David Turnbull said: "As 2018 will be the tenth year of the festival, it seems very appropriate at this

point in our history to seriously consider sustainability as we live in a beautiful part of the

world and we want to do whatever we can to protect it.

“Local groups including Porthleven Environment Project have been launched in the port and in a recent survey 97 per cent of the population said they valued the environment in and around Porthleven. It’s absolutely right that as a festival we represent this community feeling in our 2018 theme."

There will be a "Green Charter" that suppliers and stallholders will have to sign up to when they book a spot, with large artworks made out of waste on display, to help raise awareness of the plastic problem - including

a 30ft Surfer’s Against Sewage warship made entirely from plastic collected around the UK.

The After Dark Sessions line up, for the three evenings of entertainment on the Shipyard Stage, have also been revealed.

The festival will kick off with a Friday night opening party featuring Jonah’s Lift, Go Go Skank and The

Mosquitoes. Saturday night's themed party will then feature Sound of the Sirens, People’s String Foundation, Soul Stroke and Daytoner.

The Sunday evening will be more relaxed affair, with Rosie Crow, Company B and Flats & Sharps.

Although most events at the festival will remain free as usual, tickets for the After Dark parties are now available at porthlevenfoodfestival.com

Alec Short, director of ARC Live, the company organises the evening entertainment at the food festival, said: “We’ve got a great musical line up of food festival favourites from near and far to mark the tenth anniversary of this amazing event. We’re expecting a great crop of chefs across two days this year too and we’ll be announcing more about that in the New Year.”
