Dive Fest in Cornwall UK

The DIVE FEST 2009 which is to take place at Pentewan Sands Holiday Park on May 15th to 17th 2009, is a brand-new festival set to be the UK’s biggest diving event of the year.

There’s going to be diving, snorkelling, and try dives. There is also a party on the beach on the Saturday night, with a band, hog/lamb roast, dancing and a bonfire. Famous divers, such as Monty Halls, will be speaking about their work and there will be films showing throughout the weekend. It’s an event for all the family with MCS beachcombing walks, volley ball and other beach games.

The PADI sponsored film “DROP ZONE”, first shown at DEMA 2008, will have its UK premiere on Friday the 15th May at the festival.

There will be an underwater treasure hunt with some great prizes, as well as a photo competition. Diving manufacturers will also be on hand to show their latest products and in some cases give people a chance to dive with their new kit.

Winning entries to the British Underwater Image Festival will also be on view, with a prizegiving ceremony on the Sunday.

The event starts a 6pm on Friday 15th and concludes on Sunday 17th at 5pm.For further information see the Dive Fest website.
