The Scilly Events team at the Islands’ Partnership has today unveiled the Islands’ Regatta Programme this forthcoming August Bank Holiday weekend.
Topping the bill will be the RAF’s Red Arrows display on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon, but equally exciting is the visit from the Royal Navy’s Frigate Type 23 and the tall ship Spirit of Falmouth, a Parade of Sail, Flotilla of classic boats sailing from Falmouth, a children’s Pirate Cruise and Treasure Hunt and RNLI Water Carnival.
Additionally, there will be fantastic shore-side entertainment throughout the weekend including street performers and entertainers, live music, bars and barbecues and stalls selling local crafts and produce – largely centred on Holgate’s Green.
There will be a dedicated maritime walk and the Isles of Scilly Museum will host a special Maritime Exhibition across the weekend.
Businesses across Scilly are being encouraged to help promote the event across their own marketing efforts, particularly those accommodation providers who still availability across that weekend. Available at their disposal is the official Islands’ Regatta logo, the link to the official Islands’ Regatta page on the Visit Isles of Scilly website, and Islands’ Regatta photography.
If any businesses would like a stall on the Bank Holiday weekend, please call the office and speak to Annie. There are only eight available at a cost of £10 per day (£15 for non-IP members), on a first come, first served basis.
