Porthleven Torchlight Procession


Porthleven Town Council have been approached by the Porthleven Community Group to take over the Torchlight Procession which has been accepted to ensure this fantastic tradition continues.


The Torchlight Procession was revived by the Porthleven Community Group in 2013 but is believed to originate back to 1948, as part of the Gala Week festivities. The event attracts approximately 1000 people parading through Porthleven with their torches making it a wonderful spectacle and end to summer, on the August Bank Holiday Monday.


The Town Council has also agreed to organise the annual Duck Race in April.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Porthleven Community Group for all the amazing events they have organised in Porthleven.
