Fern Presents:

Live music from the talented Students on our campuses and from the local area!

Started as a separate society in 2018, Fern Sessions aims to promote the amazing music created by the hugely talented students that study in Falmouth! In 2020 Surf Radio took on the Fern Sessions events and we’re taking it to the next level by hosting amazing acts from the local area as well as promoting the work from the student bands and musicians that study here!
