The 23rd December is the annual date for the celebration of Tom Bawcock in Mousehole.
The festival is held in celebration of the efforts of legendary Mousehole resident Tom Bawcock to lift a famine from the village by going out to fish in a severe storm. During this festival Stargazy pie is served at the Ship Inn and depending on the year of celebration a lantern procession takes place.
