In recent months, the pavilion has again hosted many popular events, including the Spring Flower Show, which celebrated its 112th anniversary in spectacular fashion, with hundreds of exhibitors filling the auditorium and conservatory with a vast array of plants, flowers and compositions.
The Princess Pavilion was also one of the main venues for the recent Wanderfal Festival when, in association with The Cornish Bank, the people of Falmouth were treated to over 40 acts performing at three different venues in the town.

Colin added: “It’s clear the Princess Pavilion has been missed by the very community it was created for and now that it’s back and running, the community is showing their support for this very special place in so many ways. ”
Earlier this month, £3,000 was raised at the site’s charity event for Ukraine when, in conjunction with The Cottage Collective, visitors were treated to daytime events for children, such as circus and flag-making workshops, followed by an evening program of live music from local bands. .
