Remember Remember the 4th November – Bonfire night, Sennen Cove

Bonfire Night, a real autumn celebration. Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords.
This year on Saturday 4th November, Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove will be celebrating with a Bonfire Party. From 4pm. Bonfire on the beach, hearty strew and toffee apples. What’s not to like!

2017 reflection
The Sennen Surf Comp was initiated as a Sennen community event which began in 2015. The aim has always been to bring together everyone who has enjoyed the beach and waves over the summer. With surf comp classes for everyone the event is designed to be inclusive and open to all whether local or visitor.
The standard of surfing in the Open competition has always been of an exceptional standard. Previous Open winners are Seb Smart and Sam Bleakley.
Welcoming The Old Success as a sponsor this year widens the event to make it a true Sennen wide competition, open to all with everyone welcome. Come and celebrate the wonderful natural beach here at Sennen and show us your skills perfected on the water over the summer!
David Muir, Sennen Surfing Centre said “it’s been an extremely hectic summer, which is now widing down this half term event marks the end of the end of the busy beach and the start of the autumn winter season. This year we welcome back our partners from Sennen, without them we could not make this event happen and look forward to welcoming The Old Success Inn. It’s a fun, family friendly day, with great surfing, food and drink in the most relaxing surroundings
