Port Eliot Festival to return in 2018

Organisers of the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall have confirmed dates for the 2018 event. The announcement follows on from its sold out edition this year.

Held at St Germans from 27-30 July, the event saw some 500 artists, musicians, writers, wits, chefs, poets, performers, gardeners and other assorted people taking to 18 stages.

“We are reeling, in a very enjoyable way, from an event which brought thousands of people together and provided a shared experience that was different for everybody,” said Catherine St Germans, co-founder and director of Port Eliot Festival.

“The landscaped park and estate will need some love and attention now, but we will ensure that it is returned to its full beauty. And there is no chance of a fallow year in 2018,” she added.

Port Eliot Festival 2018 will run from 26-29 July on the ancient estate at St Germans, south east Cornwall. Tickets will be on sale in October from the festival website.
