Port Eliot Festival

Port Eliot is the original free-ranging festival of ideas, which aims to inspire and surprise as it draws an unmatchable collection of artists, musicians, writers, comedians, performers, thinkers, makers, protagonists, agitators and scribblers to one of the most beautiful corners of the country. The event takes place at the end of July each year, on the rolling park and woodland of the ancient estate at St Germans, on south east Cornwall’s Rame Peninsula. Whether you’re swimming in the estuary, picnicking under a 300 year old tree, rocking out at the Park Stage, canoeing on the river, catching an intimate gig in the church, watching a cooking demo in the Big Kitchen or dancing ‘till the wee hours in the Boogie Round – the estate is yours for the weekend.
