An Epic 2018 Porthleven Torchlight Procession

This year’s Torchlight Procession was by far the biggest with 1300 – if not more – people taking part. It was staggering to see just how many people took part.

This event is organised by a small band of people (6) which make up the Porthleven Community Group along with helpers from Porthleven TC, Cober Valley Rotary and a few students from Falmouth University who helped out during the event.

The Procession was wonderfully lead by Porthleven’s Town Band.

To help fund this event, Porthleven TC and Coastline Housing give grants to keep this a cheap as possible for all who are attending.

    The torchlight parade is always a great event and produces an atmospheric and magnificent sight. It is particularly special as it is unique locally to Porthleven.
    Thank you to all those who make it possible, for their hard work and commitment, which allows others enjoyment.
    They are all lovely pictures.
