Don’t miss these ‘cracking’ Easter events!

28 February 2016:Postcards from the Park

So, you’ve booked your Easter break and you (and the kids) are super excited.  Now all you need to do is plan how to spend your well earned week or two, but fear not, help is at hand!

With any luck, the weather will be starting to heat up and Corwall will come alive to the splash of waves and excited throng of chocolate fuelled monsters.  There is the obvious draw of the Cornish coastline for walks over craggy clifftops and surfing those clean, crisp curlers.  But at Easter time,  Cornwall offers even more.

When we travel, there is nothing worse than missing out on the must-see local events and activities, so we’ve scowered the web to bring you the best ways to fill your time with us. There couldn’t be a better time to start planning your holiday so, dive in and enjoy the Cornish spring time.

Just over a mile from the park, Stein-dynasty gastronomic wonders are served up for visitors and locals alike. At this popular festival, over 30 different beers & ciders will be available to tantalise even the greatest ale connoisseur. Add to the mix delicious mussel dishes, with a cooking demonstration by Jack Stein and talks from St. Austell Brewery as well as a charity pub quiz and music from Taz Djay Disco and The C90s and the whole offering makes for a great family day out. If it could get any better, the England rugby match will also be screened!

One for the high brow music aficionados amongst you, St Endellion Easter Festival is unusual in that the musicians and singers are a mix of amateur and professional – all of whom pay to participate in just over a week of very high quality music making.

The programme of music takes place in the 15th century Collegiate Church of St. Endelienta, St. Endellion, North Cornwall and recent years have seen such works as Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Ravel’s G Major Piano Concerto and Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana being programmed in the main concerts. Early booking is advisable due to the festival’s international reputation.
