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 entertainment, local food and craft stalls and face paintings. Plus net making, Flaxland’s exhibitions and demonstrations and a curragh on show.
Mike Smylie, maritime historian and writer, returns with his ”Kipperland” exhibition, and turn herring into delicious-tasting kippers and bloaters in his smokehouse for sale.
