Organisers have said they want to make next year's Porthleven Food Festival "better and not bigger" as they announced the date of the 2020 event.

The 12th year of the festival will take place on April 17 to 19 2020 and take the theme of "The Future."

Explaining more, food festival committee chairman Alec Short said: "In an age where food plays a pivotal role in the future of the planet, we also want to take this opportunity to explain the past and the future of the festival.

"Porthleven Food Festival began in 2007 as non-profit community organisation run by talented, committed and enthusiastic volunteers from the local community.

"Whilst the event operators made a loss in 2019, the event still managed to raise funds and support several local charities and groups. This is testament to the operator’s commitment to care for the festival and the community of Porthleven.

"For 2020 and beyond the plan is not to grow the festival in scale or capacity, but rather we look to the future by refining what we have created - and making the event better and not bigger."

He said the objectives of the festival remain as: stimulating the local economy, involving the whole community, growing awareness of food production and the environment, promoting quality local food and attracting a wider audience.

In 2014 the festival extended to Sunday and more than 10,000 visitors were seen that weekend, with local event company Arc Live brought into help with the running.

To date, 2018 has been the biggest year with a record 40,000 people attending.
