Herring Festival


Clovelly was once a centre for herring fishing. This popular festival celebrates sustainable fishing and herring, the 'Silver Darlings' of the sea. There will be delicious herring specialities, an exhibition of Clovelly herring fishing, cookery demonstrations, live music, street entertainments, local food and craft stalls, face painting and AONB event-themed craft activities. Mike Smylie, maritime historian, will return with his 'Kipperland' exhibition, smoking his delicious kippers and bloaters in his smokehouse. Plus a herring hunt, net making, Flaxland's flax processing and a curragh on show.
