FALMOUTH - A TOWN WITH STORIES TO TELL
In the 16th century, Falmouth was an unnamed peninsula south east of the historic town of Penryn. Within 200 years it had become one of the busiest ports in the world, and the nerve centre of an international communications network.
Nowadays it is building a reputation as one of the South West’s leading cultural and festival destinations, and is celebrated, among other things, for its renowned University, and award-winning bookshop, two organisations who have come together to support this, the inaugural year of the Falmouth Book Festival.
The Festival will be a place where we can connect, engage, learn, tell each other stories and broaden our horizons.
