Use the Fowey Festival as an opportunity to explore the town and countryside that inspired Daphne du Maurier.
The Fowey Festival of Words and Music takes its inspiration from Daphne du Maurier, the celebrated author who lived in the town and wrote about this particularly beautiful part of Cornwall, in novels like Jamaica Inn and Rebecca. As you’d expect, there’s a du Maurier-themed strand to the festival’s programme, plus events featuring modern-day novelists, politicians and comedians, and much more besides; we’re talking music performances, exhibitions, river cruises and guided walks of the historic harbourside town, which is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you’ve ever been drawn into the atmospheric world of du Maurier’s fiction, then how about visiting the festival to see for yourself the streets and scenery that fed her vision?
