Clovelly Herring Festival celebrating the 'Silver Darlings' of the sea
Description

Celebrating sustainable fishing and the 'Silver Darlings' of the sea

Clovelly Herring Festival always falls in November. It’s the time of year when our historic village celebrates the coming of the great “Silver Darlings”, better known as herring. We celebrate and promote this tasty, nutritious fish whilst supporting sustainable fishing.
The Maritime historian and writer, Mike Smylie, attends with his “Kipperland” exhibition, which is devoted to the history of all things herring. Mike also turns the herring into delicate-tasting kippers and bloaters in his smokehouse for sale.

Flaxland will provide their exhibitions and demonstrations.  An opportunity to discover how the flax plant is used to make a vast range of goods.
On the quay, kitchens serve a variety of delicious herring specialities along with beer, gin and cider tastings, local food and craft stalls. And throughout the day there will be live music, 
street entertainers, face-painting, art workshop, an exhibition of Clovelly herring fishing, tasters & recipes, and children’s activities.
