Rick Stein’s Fish and King Charles Primary School get creative with crabs


children with crab low resRick Stein’s Fish in Falmouth and King Charles Primary School have joined together in an art competition to mark the start of our crab celebration this June.

The competition has already seen a host of pupils from across the school get creative entering their collages, paintings and drawings after we challenged them to enter their best crab themed artwork. Year six creative ambassadors from the school joined our team of chefs this week to get up close to some live crabs to help inspire their entries for the competition.

Maddy, age 10 said “It’s been really interesting to see a massive crab up close and to celebrate crabs as food. We normally only ever see them on the beach and they’re much smaller than these ones.”

We will also welcome a performance from sea shanty band ‘Swinging the Lead’ on Sunday 14th June at 7pm during Falmouth’s International Sea Shanty Festival.

Chloe Slade, assistant manager commented: “We are overwhelmed with all the wonderful entries to our art competition by King Charles School already. We’ve made a gallery of the pictures in our window so the rest of the community can enjoy them as they walk past.”

The winner of the competition will be chosen at the end of the crab celebration and will receive a family meal at Rick Stein’s Fish. You can see all the artwork on display at Rick Stein’s Fish throughout our crab celebration this June.
