Very soon, visitors to the Isles of Scilly will have even more reason to come for a holiiday or short break thanks to a grant from the Coastal Communities Fund to establish a new “Scilly Events” team.  The funding was announced yesterday following the successful application made by the Islands’ Partnership, the body responsible for leading the islands' tourism industry, last year.  

The Isles of Scilly already hosts a number of key visitor events such as Walk Scilly and Folk Scilly, and last year put on, for the first time, a comedy event headlined by Russell Kane as well as hosted the inaugural Chistmas Festival.  The new dedicated resource will enable Scilly to develop fully an annual events programme which is every bit as rich and unique as our natural environment.
