The Daphne Du Maurier Festival

One of our all time favourite books 'Rebecca', written by internationally acclaimed novelist Daphne Du Maurier

The 10th Daphne Du Maurier Festival will be held in Fowey, Cornwall on the 12th May until the 21st May 2011. The Arts and Literature Festival is in rememberence of the author Dame Daphne Du Maurier (1907 - 1989). The acclaimed novelist became famous for her works Jamaica Inn, Frenchmans Creek and our all time favorite novel Rebecca - each taking inspiration from her love of life in Cornwall.

The 2011 Daphne Du Maurier Festival will once again play host to a programme of national and international writers and performers. With events such as the Cornish Riviera Du Maurier Fowey Guided Walk, Open Gardens with Cream Tea's and Mevagissey Male Voice Choir... this traditional Cornwall Festival will be one of spectacle, beauty and celebration!

"Celebrating the Arts in Fowey"


Thinking of making your way to Cornwall for this event, don't stop your adventures in Fowey - as there is sooooo much more to explore if you carry on down the coast. Interested in staying in our BRAND NEW ARTS HOTEL in Penzance!? Mix up the old with the new, take a look at some of our rooms, each one is unique and designed by an artist - check them out at this link:

We recommend 'Nautical Tale'... its got its own little folklore tale to tell about the lost City of Lyonesse. Designed by local artist See Through Blue Plastic, fragments of poetry do their own talking about the lost island swallowed up by the sea just off the coast of Penzance. Ooh aah!
