We are delighted to welcome you to this year’s Hope Cove Weekend after an unprecedented 2 year hiatus.  We are determined that we remain a Family Fun Weekend and the Beach Games,  Live Music and Firework Display will be central to that. 
Recognising that environmental issues are becoming ever more important, we have taken steps in 2022 to reduce single use plastic glasses and bottles. We have reusable HCW cups for sale at £1 - these are the only means of purchasing a drink in the Hope and Anchor and The Cove establishments.
We have decided this year not to print a formal HCW brochure, although copies of the programme and rules for the games will be available both on our website and as paper copies. 
This year we have opted for this comprehensive website where you can access all the information. It will be continually updated before, during and after the weekend.
Finally, I’d just like to wish everyone attending HCW a fantastic time.  Let’s hope the sun shines throughout the weekend and that the stage rocks once again. I’d also like to thank everyone on the HCW committee for their perseverance and hard work over the past 3 years, all our donors for their generosity, the sponsors, advertisers and stall holders and of course all of you for helping to make our return a success.

Now let’s have some fun!

HCW Committee
We are always looking for committee members to bring their expertise to the event. If you are interested in joining this great team please contact us via email:

HCW Fireworks
By popular request the HCW Firework Display will return in 2022. However, funding the fireworks has been a real issue following significant price increases and HCW continues to look for donations on their Go Fund Me page to help offset the cost. Please give generously to support this integral part of the weekend.
