You can tell summer has arrived. Our smart Newquay BnB is filling up for the season, our pretty little seaside town is full of life and fun, packed with happy holidaymakers, the surf’s up and there are loads of really cool things to do. Here’s a list of entertaining, compelling, exciting events in Newquay to enjoy over July 2017.
Theatrical comedy - Newquay's Lane Theatre
Marjorie, Edward & George – If you love nothing better than a night’s entertainment at the theatre, you’ll love Marjorie, Edward and George. The plot? Amateur Medium Phyllis has been trying to contact her deceased husband for the past four decades, but he’s having none of it, despite the help of her sister Elizabeth and three showroom dummies called Marjorie, Edward and George. It’s all very silly, and it’s great fun. The show runs from 13 – 26 July.
