This popular festival celebrates sustainable fishing for herring, the ‘Silver Darlings’ of the sea.  Herring, an oily fish, whether fresh or smoked, is an excellent source of some great health benefits, such as low mercury and high protein content.

The Maritime historian and writer, Mike Smylie, attends with his ”Kipperland” exhibition, which is devoted to the history of all things herring and 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.  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.
