Mevagissey Jazz Festival 2014 | Harbour Tavern Cofro Sharksfin Ship Inn Cellar Bar Blues Swing Acoustic Scat | Cormorant Hotel & Restaurant Golant Fowey CornwallOctober is a great time to visit a boutique Fowey hotel, with plenty going on in the area.

It's also a great time of year to see the sights as the Fowey estuary's wooded banks look spectacular as the yellow, red and orange hues of autumn begin to add a colourful tint to the leafy green surroundings.

So October is the perfect time to go for a walk along the banks of the Fowey, before the weather gets too cold, and head along to a fun and exciting event.

One of our favourite annual events is the Mevagissey Jazz Festival - which falls on the weekend of October 4th and 5th.

The festival clashes with another popular local festival which we've already blogged about - the Lostwithiel Cider Festival - but since this festival runs over two days it's possible to visit both in the course of one weekend.

The Jazz festival offers plenty, with performances taking place in several venues around the village - all of which are free to attend.

So we thought we'd break down the festival to make sure you know exactly what's going to be happening, where and when.
