Port Eliot Festival: we'll see you there!

Port Eliot Festival: we'll see you there!

We’ve been busy this week, wrangling our calendars and booking in all of our summer events and it’s really put us in the mood for summer, sunshine and outdoor living.

Port Eliot Festival 2018
One of the highlights of our summer events last year for me was Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall (despite the wallowing mud) and there are still tickets left for this year - if you are super quick - don’t leave it too long or you will miss out!

If you've never been, Port Eliot is touted as one of the most civilised family festivals and it really is one of the most laid back ones I’ve been to. From creative workshops from the likes of Anthropologie and Uzma Bozai, to talks by iconic creative talents such as Zhandra Rhodes and Martin Parr - I was blown away by the range of events laid on over the weekend.

This year is looking equally fab - we are going to be treated to workshops including aerial yoga and wild cocktail making (what a combo!); amazing music - as well as circus school and campfire skills for the littlies. You can take a look at the full 'What's On' guide here.

And dont even get me started on the food... 'Bad-Ass' bacon butties, the genius Sipsmith Bloody Mary cart and authentic Thai lunchboxes all powered us through the long days in the Dilli Grey tent last year.

Now let’s talk about camping. If you are an aficionado with a 2-man tent of your own you will be in heaven, as this is no Glastonbury schlepping 3 miles between the tent and all the action. There are gorgeous pitches all over the beautiful grounds, right on a glorious estuary.

For those of you looking to rock up and just get on with it, there is amazing boutique camping and yurts galore!

There is literally something for everyone!

So I'll be back, with my Dilli Grey girls, this July - make sure you find us and come and say hi, have a glass of bubbles and hang out in our hippie tent; there will be a gentle flow of music, flowers in our hair and hopefully lots of barefoot chilling!
