Falmouth has been recognised as an Honorary Quidditch Town after being named in a new book by J.K. Rowling.
The town has been named in 'Quidditch Through The Ages' after the fictious team the 'Falmouth Falcons' feature in the wizarding world’s Quidditch league.
The mayor of Falmouth, Councillor Stephen Eva, along with 11-year-old Harry Potter fan Lily May unveiled the new banner at Pendennis Castle to celebrate Falmouth being recognised in the book.
The banner bears the town’s Quidditch team crest; a black and white falcon.
The gold Quidditch hoop banner will remain at Pendennis Castle to honour the town’s fictitious Quidditch team, The Falmouth Falcons.
A total of 11 towns and villages across the UK and Ireland have been recognised in the new book which acts as a companion to the Harry Potter series and a guide on the wizard’s favourite sport.
