1. The Night of Neon Colour Fun Run

On Saturday the 14th of October Flambards Theme Park is hosting a neon paint night-time fun run to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care.

The 4k run goes throughout the theme park and promises to have plenty of paint stations to ensure you end up really glowing in the dark!

All the money raised goes to a great cause and the event is loads of fun; well worth your time.

6. Bloodhound Supersonic Car Trial Run

If you’re feeling the need, the need for speed, watching the first test of the Bloodhound Supersonic Car is the event for you.

The test will take place at Newquay Aero Hub and will see the car be driven up to dizzying speeds of 200mph as the car is tested before it goes off to set a land speed record of 1000mph.

This is a huge engineering feat with the purpose of not only setting a new world record but more importantly to inspire a new generation of young people to engage with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in an exciting and innovative way. 

Certainly worth your time as its a once in a lifetime event!
