Christmas In Cornwall 2021

Christmas In Cornwall 2021 - Things To Do In St Ives

It feels odd to be writing this in October, but Christmas is closer than you think!

I've put together a list of all the things I have heard about for Christmas 2021. This is my own personal list and I'm not involved in the set up, running or booking of any of the tickets. I really must stress to you all that you need to check with the venues to make sure things are going ahead. With things as they are at the moment, who knows what Christmas 2021 will actually be like!

We are based in St Ives and most of the information is about things to do in West Cornwall this Christmas. We have also included the big events that are happening in the rest of Cornwall as these might be worth travelling to!

I will be adding more to this over the coming weeks, so keep on checking both on here and on my Facebook page for lots of Christmas 2021 information!
