Where: Looe beach and around town
When: 21st-23rd September
Website: www.looemusic.co.uk for online tickets & line-up
Headline acts will play on the unique beach stage overlooking the sea and 60+ bands will be performing all around Looe, all weekend in the pubs and on the other stages. The line up is still being finalised but our sources say there are some big names coming. Expect contemporary UK bands, 70s rock giants, 2-tone legends, new wave icons, traditional Cornish folk music and a fun, friendly atmosphere.
Last year was a blast with amazing performances on the beach stage from Adrian Edmonson & the Bad Shepherds (doing a swansong tour), The Selecter, Roy Wood, and From The Jam. Meanwhile 60 bands performed all over town on the other stages, covering all musical tastes from hip-hop and rock to 1940s swing and blues. This year, its going to be even bigger and better
We think: at £40 for 3 days and discounts for children, its a bargain. Once the line ups announced tickets might go soon so get in early.

Spot fish and sea creatures through the glass floor of this wonderful boat as you cruise around Looe Island, exploring caves and meeting seals. Anthony is a friendly skipper who knows the waters well. Of all the sight-seeing trips going out of Looe, this is one of the most fun, especially for the kids. Highly recommended. Anthonys happy to take you if you turn up at the quay but in high season it can get busy so call ahead to book your place.
We think: Anthonys always happy to take you if you turn up at the quay but hes a popular skipper, so in high season call ahead to book your place.
Where: Lower Clicker Rd, Menheniot, Nr Liskeard, PL14 3PJ

Adrenalin Quarry has been throwing people off cliffs in various ways since 2009. It started ambitiously enough with a half kilometre zip wire (UKs longest) stretched over a 150ft flooded Cornish quarry. Then came freshwater coasteering off the quarry cliffs. Last year, the owners pushed the boundaries again with a truly terrifying yet exhilarating Giant Cliff-Top Swing. You and the family can do all three if youre up for it...
We think: A genuinely unique experience thatll leave you buzzing. Be warned, The Giant Swing IS scary. Buy family tickets for a good discount.
