Falmouth Spring Festival
The Falmouth Spring Festival is a fantastic event that we’re sponsoring for the third year running. It forms an important part of our annual community calendar and is an opportunity to celebrate the start of spring with the community we are proud to be part of.
Our students and staff love to participate in the town’s activities, especially the spring clean, which always generates a crowd of willing volunteers.
We are really proud to be supporting this annual event, providing both volunteers and, more recently, sponsorship. Falmouth Spring Festival has a strong community ethos and the University of Exeter is committed to working with and supporting the community of which we are part.
Ruth Grimmer, Head of Professional Services

I’m delighted to welcome the University of Exeter as our title sponsor. Having a world-class institute such as Exeter engaged with the festival is terrific news for the town. The Falmouth Spring Festival is a celebration of coast, culture and community and we look forward to staff, university societies and student ambassadors supporting a host of vibrant activities that are planned at numerous venues and locations across our special town.
