Live music, a Caribbean BBQ and a seaside glitter workshop are just some of the attractions being held at Milford Waterfront during this year’s Pembrokeshire Fish Week.
Milford Waterfront has supported a number of fish and sea-themed events that are being organised by the individual businesses along Nelson Quay and Mackerel Quay.

Free family activities will be held at Milford Waterfront on Saturday 24th June. There’ll be entertainment from Samba Doc, the Pembrokeshire Ukulele Pirates and the Vagrants Crew at various locations throughout the day, free entry into Milford Haven Museum and children will be able to make the most of a fishy graffiti class, run by Lloyd the Graffiti; balloon modelling; and pavement painting outside Phoenix Bowl.
A highlight of the day will be the third annual Milford Chowder Trail in which restaurants will compete to be crowned Milford Chowder Champion 2017. Coco’s, Foam and Pembrokeshire Yacht Club at The Scoop will attempt to take the title from last year’s winner Gordon Bennett’s Traditional Fish and Chips.
This year the opening events for Pembrokeshire Fish Week will take place on Saturday 24th June, and Sunday 25th June at Lawrenny and Scolton Manor, respectively.

Notes to Editors
Milford Waterfront is a multi-million pound regeneration project being led by the Port of Milford Haven. It aims to revitalise the marina and docks into a vibrant destination, adding to the existing mix of leisure, retail and dining businesses and boosting the economy by providing long term, sustainable jobs.
A number of flagship projects have already been completed at the site including the installation of new lock gates that have significantly reduced locking times and the construction of new fishing buildings for the industry.
The new development will also celebrate the arts, culture and heritage of the area, working in partnership with key stakeholders. The Port already hosts a busy calendar of events at the marina such as Torch Theatre Sunset Cinema screenings and awards ceremonies which add to the diverse range of attractions on the waterfront.
In February 2015, a resolution to grant consent was gained from Pembrokeshire County Council for the development and work is ongoing to finalise detailed plans that will soon be submitted to the local authority.
