Choose from a variety of crab and lobster dishes cooked on the quay or book a table at the Red Lion Harbour Restaurant and dine on a delicious lobster dish.
There’ll be live music all day including sea shanties & folk music by the Barnacle Buoys, Harbottle & Jonas and Westerley 5 or 6.

Chef cookery demonstrations and tasters by Sanjay Kumar from the award-winning mobile cooking school, “School of Cornish Sardines”. He has also appeared on Countryfile along with the BBC’s Food Programme.

Felicity Sylvester from “Sustainable Fish Education” who promotes greater use of local caught sustainable fish, holding workshops/demos around Devon & Cornwall.  She will be offering recipes and information as well as performing Lobsters Hypnotising.

There will be a prize draw for a magnum of champagne, local food and craft stalls, withy pot demos by Sue Morgan, Clovelly Lobster fishing exhibition along with plenty of freshly cooked lobsters and crabs, and beer tasting.

Children will be kept entertained by street theatre, Walkabout Magic, balloon modelling and event-themed Games and craft activities provided by ArtyCrafts & Shipwreck Survival workshops.

It’s in aid of the National Lobster Hatchery, Padstow, who will be exhibiting some of their baby lobsters prior to and after their release into Clovelly Bay at the beginning and end of the day. They are best known for their lobster stock enhancement programme where they rear the baby lobsters from theeggs. It is the most vulnerable stage of their life cycle after which they release them back into the wild, with the help of local fishermen and dive groups.

In 2014 alone, they released 53,000 juveniles back into the wild and they hope to increase the numbers released over the next few years. Anyone can Adopt a Lobster for just £4 to help pay for their baby lobsters to be raised and then released.
