It’s spring! Hooray. Okay, if you’re reading this before 20 March, then it is isn’t technically springtime yet but the weather is certainly getting warmer and many of those places that close in Cornwall for the winter are opening themselves back up again. And there’s a bucketload of events taking place this month across the Duchy. But are there actually any decent March 2023 things to do in Cornwall? There sure are, of course, as we let you know below!
Prepare for a charity Cornish craft beer festival, a ‘Barrel of Laughs’ comedy festival, a British Science Week event for kids, the Far Woolly West yarn festival and probably the best flower show in the Duchy. And, of course, St Piran’s Day is in early March and that’s a Cornwall-wide celebration of, well, Cornwall, so do not miss that. And that’s just a taster.
