Port Eliot Festival
28 July, 2016at 10:00 am - 31 July, 2016at 4:00 pm
The Port Eliot Festival is a festival like no other. Set in the magnificent ancient house and gardens of Port Eliot, it is a celebration of words, music, nature, food, imagination and fun.
With a laid-back approach, the festival combines an upmarket literature festival with beautiful pop music, delicious food and inspiring workshops.
An array of some of the world’s greatest artists and thinkers have appeared at the festival, from Sarah Waters, Jarvis Cocker and Caitlin Moran to Hanif Kureishi and Stephen Frears, along with amazing music from artists such as Noah and the Whale, Bellowhead and The Bees.
New areas are added each year, including a Cabaret Tent, the Wardrobe Department, a Flower Show, a magical Children’s area and the Cinema Paradiso – all culminating in a really magical weekend for young and old alike.
