PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Hot on the heels of the excellent WanderFal festival and next month's Falmouth Cringe comedy event, Falmouth is proving to be Cornwall’s favourite festival destination with the announcement of another major arts event. The inaugural Falmouth International Arts Fest (FIAFest) will deliver theatre, music, dance and more - showcasing the potential for a large-scale performance festival in the future and bringing local, national and international talent to the port. FIAFest is the brainchild of Charlie Bunker and Gabby Vautier, co-directors of imPOSSIBLE Producing. During the pandemic, Gabby and Charlie, both Falmouth residents, spotted the opportunity that the town was perfect for a performing arts festival – something similar to Manchester International Festival or the Oerol Festival in Holland. As a result, they are set to create positive cultural havoc across the town with the first outing of the festival, celebrating and showcasing the very best of local work, while also bringing the most exciting national and international performers to Falmouth’s doorsteps. Presented in partnership with Falmouth Business Improvement District (BID), The Cornish Bank, The Poly, Princess Pavilion, Stranger Collective with support from FEAST, AMATA Falmouth Uni, Miracle Theatre, Hall for Cornwall & WILD, FIAFest will bring high quality, moving, quirky and accessible and cool theatre, dance, music, talks, pop-up performances and more.

There is also a complementary artist development and local schools programme led by festival artists. Key highlights include Terra Coda, an orchestral love letter to the planet created by Olivier-nominated composer Benji Bower at the Princess Pavilion on July 9 and 10, iMelania, from digital performance duo Varjack Lowry who will challenge your tech skills and your opinions on immigration (The Poly, July 12) and the BAC Beatbox Academy, fresh from their sell-out international tour. FIAFest will turn the town’s Church Street car park into a festival hub for free and pay-what-you-like pop-up performances, including an outdoor music stage with The Cornish Bank, acrobatics, circus and dance by world-renowned Ockhams Razor, Trifle Gathering's Theatrical Tattoo Parlour and a secret cinema experience with The Splendid Hut. Cornwall artists will also be at the centre of FIAFest. Falmouth's Seamas Carey will be bringing back his sell-out show Help I Think I’m a Nationalist (Wood Lane Social Club. July 14 and 15. Seamus will also be running a debate night following his hugely provocative podcast The Reason Why (the one which got Tim Smit in hot water), exploring what it is to be Cornish (The Cornish Bank, July 10) while Cscape’s dancing waitresses will be delighting diners across the town.

Expect to laugh, cry, be surprised, see things you have never seen before, feel understood, feel different and ultimately want it all to happen again next year.” Across the pandemic, Cornish creativity mushroomed in Falmouth, resulting in a new collaborative brainchild of six organisations - Falmouth Creates. This new creative umbrella group is being fostered by Falmouth BID. FIAFest is one of the creative partners within the group Richard Wilcox, executive director of Falmouth BID, said: “Falmouth’s enviable festival calendar gets bigger and better every year, and Falmouth BID is delighted to be able to support the inaugural FIAFest.
