From the world-renowned Red Arrows and a 50ft big wheel, to adrenaline-filled sailing and famous music acts, more than 100,000 people are being reported to have flocked into Falmouth last week.

Falmouth Business Improvement District (BID) manager, Richard Wilcox, said: “Falmouth Week is another example of the community coming together to make great things happen.

“We know from visitor surveys that half of the four million visitors to Cornwall do so to experience events and that is why we have as a Town Team, invested in more activities and festivals enabling Falmouth to become Cornwall’s events capital.

“Each day visitor spends on average around £45 so it becomes quickly apparent how valuable such events as Falmouth Week are to the town and its businesses. This is why we all work hard to ensure they are as professionally run and organised as possible.”
