Summer Events NewquayNewquay Business Improvement District (BID) will shortly be posting its 2014 Summer Events Guide to over 17,000 Newquay postcodes in an effort to encourage local people to engage with all the brilliant things there are to do in the town over the summer months.

The eye-catching guide, featuring images from courtesy of Maggie Robson, will be delivered to a comprehensive range of TR7, TR8 or TR9 postcodes from Monday 21st April, so keep an eye on your door mat to ensure you don’t miss yours! People can also pick up a copy of the guide from Newquay’s Tourist Information Centre at the bottom of Marcus Hill.

The Summer Events Guide features no fewer than 42 fantastic things to do in and around Newquay from May right through to September. Highlights include the upcoming Art8, Newquay’s Arts and Culture Festival, being held over the May Bank Holiday Friday 23rd to Monday 26th, and Newquay Carnival Week happening from Saturday 5th to Saturday 12th July which promises to deliver fabulous family fun. Also on the horizon is the highly anticipated Boardmasters held at Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th August and of course Newquay Fish Festival bringing in the end of the summer with a day full of fishy delights from 12th to 14th September.  

There are also some new editions to Newquay’s events calendar, including an open air performance of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest in the iconic and picturesque grounds of the Headland Hotel on Saturday 19th July courtesy of Cornwall’s very own Miracle Theatre. If you’re looking for something more high impact, the Beast of Cornwall Long Distance Surf Triathlon will be coming to Newquay’s Barrowfields on Sunday 6th July.  The Newquay BID Beach Cricket Event at Fistral Beach will also be returning this year, so make sure you have your board shorts, bikinis and bats at the ready on Sunday 13th July for what is shaping up to be the biggest Newquay Beach Cricket event yet.

BID Marketing and PR Assistant Alice Beard said: “We are very excited about getting the Summer Events Guide out to local households so that people can discover the brilliant range of events that we have happening in our town.  The BID is keen to drive as much footfall as possible through Newquay during the summer months and this guide will help us promote an exciting and eclectic events calendar that supports both high profile and community events.

“It is incredibly important that we ensure local people have a copy of this guide, so that they come along and support these events as well. Last year we saw tens of thousands of people, both locals and visitors, heading to Newquay and we are confident that with the fantastic offering of events from high adrenaline to family friendly fetes, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy in Newquay this summer.
