Sizzling summer events in Cornwall

The summer’s here! If you’re looking for ideas for what to do and where to go while you’re down here in Cornwall, we’ve put together a few ideas to get you started.

Here are our top picks of what’s on over the next few weeks.

1. The wonderful Kneehigh Theatre is back this summer with their purpose-build nomadic performance space, the Asylum. They’ve got two brand new shows – Midnight’s Pumpkin and the Wild Bride. Shows start on 23 July and run throughout the summer. Expect something magic, memorable and unlike anything you’ve ever seen before… Great for the whole family!

2. The World Bellyboarding Championships take place at Chapel Porth on Sunday 4 September. Organised and hosted by the National Trust, it’s a celebration of all things connected with the art of riding traditional wooden boards. Whether you fancy having a go (anyone can take part) or soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the spectacle, it’s sure to be a great day out!

3. If sailing‘s your thing there’s plenty going on in and around the water in Cornwall this summer. Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week (6-14 August) is followed by Fowey Royal Regatta (14th-20th August). Spectacular yacht races plus a range of culinary treats, live music and children’s entertainment.


4. The Eden Project has a fantastic range of children’s activities lined up for the school holidays as usual with their Festival of Play from 23 July -4 Sept (ideal even if the weather’s not!). And to celebrate their 10th birthday, they’ve commissioned an extra-special show, Labyrinth, presented by the award-winning NoFit State Circus. Labyrinth is a fusion of circus performance, music, dance and drama. Follow the performers through Eden as the story unfolds…


5. There are festivals happening all over the county this summer. Port Eliot, on the beautiful St Germans estate (21-24 July) is more like a huge garden party than a traditional festival, and it’s ideal for families, with loads of space to roam and inspired children’s areas. And book lovers will want to check out the Penzance Literary Festival (27-31 July). Towards the end of the summer, there’s a whole host of festivities, from including Bude Jazz Festival (27 August-2 Sept) and the Newlyn Fish Festival (2 Sept). Phew!

6. The National Trust are running loads of events during the summer – from outdoor theatre and cinema to family fun days and nature discovery sessions at locations all over Cornwall.
