As the Cove is somewhat smaller than Pentewan Beach we are restricting the number of Clubs attending to 16 so it is a case of replying as quickly as you can to secure your place!
We have unrestricted use of the pub car park for trailers and towing vehicles and there is plenty of free parking on the estate roads around Portmellon Cove.
PLEASE read the invitation carefully for travelling to Portmellon – Gigs are NOT to go through Mevagissey unless you want to get stuck!
Looking forward to seeing you…here are the details -
