FALMOUTH is in for a cracker this Christmas season with the ever-popular festive weekend returning from December 9-10

The Festive Weekend is back for all to come and enjoy with local businesses and community getting into the Christmas spirit right across town.

There will be an artificial ice rink, snow globe photo attraction and curling lane, as well as snow machines throughout Church Street for some wintry fun.

Brand-new attractions such as a full Christmas Market and unique bike display will be available this year and local choirs, bands and performers will ensure an incredible atmosphere from The Moor right down to Events Square.

Make sure you come aboard the festive land train to take you from one location to another.

Richard Gates, Falmouth Town Manager said: “We are pleased to be able to offer the Christmas Lights Switch-On once again this year thanks to the Falmouth Town Council and Falmouth BID as well as other supporters. It’s also great to welcome back Falmouth’s Festive Weekend with a whole array of activities for the local businesses and community at this special time of year.”
