A day-by-day look at the events taking place at Fowey Festival Saturday 20th May

The last day of the Fowey Festival begins with a reading group at 9.30am in the Parish Hall.  Today Dr Ella Westland leads the group in a discussion about Daphne du Maurier's short story The Lordly Ones and her novel The House on the Strand.  These titles are sure to bring out some interesting lines of discussion.

In the Town Hall at 11am, David Parker presents his talk Cornwall on Film.  He will guide the audience through various wonderful images illustrating how people lived and worked on the land and beside the sea in Cornwall from the 1930s to the 1970s.
