Port Elliot Festival

Taking place each summer in the woodland gardens and park of an ancient stately home and mediaeval monastery in south east Cornwall, Port Eliot Festival remains a rare original, an event which “runs the gamut from endearingly pseudish to singularly brilliant”². The full line-up will be announced soon, including The Wardrobe Department (curated by the British Fashion Council’s Ambassador for Emerging Talent, Sarah Mower); the Flower & Fodder Show; stages curated by The Idler magazine, digital literary magazine Five Dials, bucolic online forum for all things outdoors, Caught By The River, combined book and knitting blog dovegreyreader; and all manner of one-off and unscheduled events inside the House and all over the woodland gardens and park. The eccentric nature of the festival is a reflection of the singular history and character of Port Eliot itself. Inhabited since the Bronze Age, it has housed Augustinian monks, survived confiscation by Charles I’s Court of the Star Chamber and been declared the most beautiful place in England by Napoleon. Its central room boasts a 360° masterpiece mural by Robert Lenkiewicz alongside great works by Reynolds and Van Dyck. The festival finds its way into the House itself, with exhibitions in the basement, tours of the historic rooms and conversations in the Round...
