Family Half Term at Piran Meadows

Spending your half term in the Cornish seaside? Newquay is teeming with family friendly events…

Piran Meadows has lots on this half term with a jam packed Go Active programme, splash zone and fun play areas all on site! But if you wanted to venture out to the local area, Newquay is only a short drive away and is an epicentre for family fun!

Here are a few top choice events on over the half term holidays


Way Out West


When: 1st – 5th June

Traditional wild west festival, wonderful live music and perfect family fun! With some of the UK’s most sought after bands, including the lovely Laura Graham, a rising star, and the Texas Tornados, who were nominated Band of the Year at the BCMA’s! There will be tons of competitions to chance your luck, raffles and auctions, as well as a really fun dog show, so the fur-baby can get involved too! Family fun with western music and a super fun open mic night!


Hero’s Week


Where: Crealy Adventure Theme Park

When: 28th May – 5th June

Crealy Adventure Theme Park is one of Cornwall’s top attractions, and for one week only it’s hosting its own Hero’s Week! With all the usual attractions on to entertain and you may even catch a glimpse of special guests, including Wonder Woman, Batman and even Superman! You’ll get the chance to create your very own hero with the ‘Design a Hero’ competition running all week, and a children’s annual membership up for grabs! Great family fun in Newquay at Crealy’s!


Tunes in the Dunes


Where: Perranpath Beach

Where: 27th – 29th May

Back by popular demand, Tunes in the Dunes is in its second year, taking place on the golden sands of Perranporth Beach with the breathtaking backdrop of scenic cliffs! A one of a kind event, the two day festival gives you the chance to enjoy an ice cold beverage a stone’s throw away from the ocean, while dancing to the fantastic live music. In association with the British Longboard Championships, you’ll get the chance to see the UK’s best longboarders battle it out in the surf for the crown! Headliners at the Tunes in the Dunes include James Morrison and Dizzie Rascal!

Have an amazing half term and happy adventuring!
