A campaign group fighting to prevent cliff at Whipsiderry from being concreted took their fight to the streets on Saturday.

The Save Whipsiderry Cliffs group staged a parade through town to help get their message across and to promote the Save Whipsy Fest which is happening on Sunday between 2pm and 10pm.

The group dressed in their festival outfits carried placards advertising the event through Fore Street, East Street, The Killacourt, The Harbour & Fistral beach, handing out leaflets to the public, and dropping posters at local businesses.

Kez Bowman who led the parade dressed in her colourful party outfit said: “The reception we received from the Newquay public was brilliant.

“We were met with lots of big smiles and positive comments, with many people telling us they would be buying tickets.

“It’s going to be fantastic event, with some brilliant performers from the South West, as well as family friendly workshops, comedy & much more! “

The group have joined forces with Quick Panda Productions, who organise many of Cornwall’s events including The Great Estate festival & Rattler Fest, to host a day of top-quality music, comedy and family activities.

Headlining the event are Cornish band A Blaze Of Feather, alongside Southwest band, Land Of The Giants & Cornwall’s own Wille & The Bandits. Kernow King, will be entertaining the crowd with his unique style of Cornish comedy, as well as Newquay favorite Daisy Clark, Sprout Spoken, Surfing Sam & a special appearance from the Cornish Merpod!

The Save Whipsy Fest event is being held to raise money for the Save Whipsiderry Cliffs campaign.

Funds will be used for legal and professional support to prevent the "destruction" of the cliffs by a property developer.
