Fishermen’s Mission Charity Dinner

Join us on Thursday 13th October for a celebration of Cornish food and drink at The Fishermen's Mission Charity Dinner.

A celebration of Cornwall

Head to The Great Hall on the 13th October to help raise money for an incredibly important cause. The widely renowned team behind The Fishermen’s Mission will be joining us to co-host a celebratory evening of Cornish food and drink that will both highlight the important work they do and raise funds to help them continue to deliver their work across Cornwall.


Join the South West’s Top Chefs

In a true celebration of all our coastal region has to offer, some of Cornwall’s top chefs will be taking over The Alverton’s kitchen for the evening to highlight the very best seafood, grass-fed meats and harvest available across The Duchy, including St. Enodoc’s Guy Owen, Kota’s Jude Kereama, The Rick Stein group’s Stephane Delourme and our very own Nick Hodges and Darryl Collins (Cornwall Hotel Collection).
