Great year is not over yet
IT'S been a big year for Plymouth. We've hosted some amazing events, attracting thousands of visitors from across the UK and beyond… and there's even more to come.
While the sun hasn't always come out to play, everyone has been guaranteed a really warm welcome, with loads to see and do.
Massive crowds packed the Hoe in May to witness the arrival of the Olympic Flame in Plymouth, followed by a spectacular Armed Forces Day National Event in June.
People thronged the Barbican for the Plymouth Harbour Weekend and gathered at the Big Screen in hordes, first for fantastic live coverage of Wimbledon and later to cheer on Team GB in the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Thousands headed to our waterfront for the 16th British Firework Championships last month and, despite challenging conditions on the second night, competitors wowed spectators with some stunning displays.
Hosting first-class events like these is fast positioning Plymouth as a major visitor destination that really can compete with the world's best.
We are just about to stage the city's inaugural Marine City Festival, including our first ever Seafood Festival, a lively arts and entertainment programme, the Ecover Blue Mile and much more.
Hot on its heels will be the Plymouth International Book Festival, which is another first for the city, bringing together bookworms and lovers of all things literary.
Finally, we'll be rounding off the summer season with a fantastic homecoming celebration for Plymouth's Olympic and Paralympic athletes, including Tom Daley and Ruta Meilutyte, who captivated the world with their medal-winning performances at London 2012.
We look forward to seeing you there!
