Rock Oyster Festival 17th to 19th June
14th June 11
Taking place from 17th to 19th June, the Rock Oyster Festival will bring together the best of Cornish food and produce, quirky music acts and family entertainment – and raise thousands of pounds for charity.
Due to the huge success of the 2010 festival, the Rock Oyster Festival will relocate in 2011 to the stunning venue of Dinham House, overlooking the Camel Estuary. With more space the move will help cement the festival's growing reputation as the leading artisan food event in North Cornwall. There will be a fantastic range of family entertainment as well as some of the best local producers showcasing delights from shellfish to steaks and everything in between.
The Festival will kick off with Circus Berzercus on the Friday night with Saturday and Sunday showcasing oysters and seafood from top chefs including Nathan Outlaw (chef and owner at Cornwall’s only two-Michelin-starred restaurant) alongside food stalls selling affordable local produce, and a hotly-anticipated oyster shucking competition between the chefs present.
Make a weekend of it and stay at the Leisureplex owned Eliot hotel in Newquay, very well situated close to Great western and Tolcarne beaches and only a short drive from Dinham House.
