After the resounding success of the 2013 Festival, we're doing it all again! 2014 will be a very special year for Boscastle, as it will be the 10th anniversary of the flood that swept through the village on 16th August 2004, causing massive damage but, thankfully, no loss of life. The Festival year will start with Walking Week which will run from Friday 28th March to Saturday 5th April. This will be followed in later in the year by the Food, Art and Craft Festival, which this year will take place on 4th and 5th October.

Fabulous food

Art and Craft


Blessed, once again, with lovely weather, the 2013 Food, Art and Craft Festival attracted over 3000 visitors and raised  £8,500 for local charities and organisations.


We're now warming up for the 2014 Festival. Sally Searle and her team are busy plotting a range of new and exciting walks to complement some of the old Walking Week favourites, while the Food, Art and Craft Festival organisers have now recovered sufficiently from last year's event to start planning an even better one this year!


The website still reflects the 2013 events, but we'll  be updating it from Febrary onwards -  so come back soon and see what's happening next year.

Boscastle Food, Arts and Crafts Festival – 4th and 5th October 2014. Saturday 10am- 5pm, Sunday 10am – 4pm. Tickets : adults £3, children free. We regret that pushchairs are not allowed in the marquee for health and safety reasons. Similarly, no dogs - except guide dogs -  are allowed.
