Port Eliot is a festival unlike any other. When you come to Port Eliot, they will welcome you as their guests. Their home is your playground for one magical weekend and nothing makes them happier than seeing you explore the Estate.

Whether you’re swimming in the estuary, picnicking under a 300 year old tree, rocking out at the Park Stage, canoeing on the river, catching an intimate gig in the church, watching a cooking demo in the Big Kitchen or dancing ‘till the wee hours in the Boogie Round – their home is yours for the weekend.

They invite you to their little corner of Cornwall from July 28th to July 31st when you'll celebrate words, music, imagination, ideas, nature, food, fashion, flowers, laughter, exploration, fun and all that is good in the world!

Tom Wrigglesworth

Tom Wrigglesworth appearing at this event

Tom is a frighteningly tall comedian, but a thoroughly nice man with a likeable stage presence and confident delivery. This Yorkshire funny man became a national have-a-go-hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for begging. He's also the winner of Channel 4's 'So You Think You're Funny?' competition. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends. His warm and hilarious tales, told with true passion never fail to captivate the crowd. His television credits include Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Show, Live At The Comedy Store and Engineering Giants. 'Magical storytelling... a rare talent... hysterical and accomplished' (Time Out) 'The gods of comedy chose greatness for Tom' (The Scotsman).

Hollie McNish

Hollie McNish appearing at this event

Spoken word poet who by early 2014 had released two poetry albums, Touch and Push Kick, both to critical acclaim - with the latter prized for contributions to maternal research by the University of London. At a time when the live entertainment industry is saturated with acts that are formulaic and predictable, internationally acclaimed poet and spoken word artist Hollie McNish is a breath of fresh air. Reciting words of love, politics, race, breasts and all that comes in between, Hollie’s poems captivate and move audiences to feel something that is sorely lacking in the industry today. Coming 1st in the UK Slam Poetry Finals and 3rd in the World Poetry Slam Finals, Hollie broke into the mainstream via the Internet – two of her videos ‘Mathematics’ and ‘Embarrassed’ have gone viral on YouTube, reaching over one million views in just over a week. She has received high praise both online and in print, garnering accolades including ‘Internet Sensation’ (Best Daily) and ‘Chick of the Week’ (MTV). In the words of poet Benjamin Zephaniah, "I can’t take my ears off her."
