The Annual General Meeting of the members of the Council takes place in the Municipal Buildings Council Chamber, in May every year. It is at this meeting that there is a Mayormaking Ceremony. This is where the Town Mayor and Deputy Town Mayor are officially appointed and so begin their civic year.
The Civic Service is held each year, after the mayormaking ceremony. The service celebrates the inauguration of the new Town Mayor and is attended by civic heads and all sections of Falmouth’s communities.
Sea Sunday takes place each year in July and is an important date in the civic calendar that recognises the Towns rich maritime traditions and particularly its strong naval links. Traditionally the parade, which consists of the Royal Naval Association, Standard Bearers, Town Councillors and other organisations, forms up on the Moor Piazza and marches to the Parish Church, King Charles the Martyr, for a Service. The parade reforms following the service and marches to the Watersports Centre via the saluting base outside Trago Mills.
The Day of Remembrance is held nationally each year on the nearest Sunday to the 11th November. The local service at Kimberley Park specifically provides the opportunity for Falmouth’s citizens to formally pay tribute to all those who have given their lives in the service of this country.
