What's on this February Half Term..

Written by Catherine Coad on

Looe & Polperro is a great family destination all year round, but if you prefer to avoid too many crowds, February half term is a good time to come down. Please see below a selection of events and activities, for young and old, fair weather or foul.

For Adults
There is “A Night of Fish ’n’ Tips” from the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide and Looe Marine Conservation Group.  The speaker is Matt Slater of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, with chefs from Old Sail Loft, Pengelly's and others. 7-10pm on Friday 19th February at the Millpool Centre, West Looe.

Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is hosting “Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War”, an exhibition highlighting the fate of around 700 ships which sank off England’s south coast during World War I.  It’s on throughout half term, and until 18th March.

If you fancy a flutter, East Cornwall Hunt Point to Point Meeting is taking place on Sunday 21st February near Liskeard.  A minimum of six races will be held, and food and drink will be available.  Place your bets!

For Kids
Keep little ones and older kids entertained with loads of fun and educational activities.

The Wartime Winter exhibition at Porthcurno Telegraph Museum gives kids a chance to discover what it would have been like for evacuees in World War II.  Running throughout February.  http://www.primarytimes.net/cornwall/listings/wartime-winter-68851
