Lobster and Crab Feast
In support of The National Lobster Hatchery
Clovelly celebrates its famous lobsters and crabs sustainably caught by its fishermen with a great day out for all the family.
Choose from a variety of crab and lobster dishes cooked on the quay or book a table at the Red Lion Harbour Restaurant and dine on delicious lobster and seafood platters.
There'll be live folk music, chef cookery demonstrations, a prize draw for a magnum of champagne, local food and craft stalls, including plenty of freshly cooked lobsters and crabs, and beer tasting. Children will be kept entertained by street theatre, walkabout magic, balloon modelling and event-themed craft activities provided by The National Trust.
It's in aid of the National Lobster Hatchery, Padstow, who will be exibiting some of their baby lobsters prior to their release into Clovelly Bay at the end of the day. At the heart of the NLH's work is their lobster restocking project whereby local fishermen bring 'pregnant' female lobsters to the hatchery so that their delicate offspring are given a better chance in life by being raised in captivity without predators. These young lobsters are raised to a size where they can be released back into the sea and look after themselves.http://www.nationallobsterhatchery.co.uk/
