The Alverton’s Summer Sessions

Join us for an unforgettable summer of al fresco food, cocktails, and live music in Cornwall.

The Alverton’s Summer Garden Sessions are making a return once again. This time, with nine incredible singer-songwriters and acoustic melodists taking to the terrace stage to entertain and inspire you. Treat your ears to sweet, soulful music performed against the botanical backdrop of ancient trees and colourful blooms. 

Sip on something sweet under the warmth of soft Cornish sun rays, as you settle in for an evening of al fresco food and chilled out tunes in the garden. 

What included

Tickets to our Summer Garden Sessions are £15 per person, and include a signature summer cocktail on arrival, a reserved table on our suntrap terrace, live music in Cornwall from our talented musician of the evening, and your choice of a delicious small plate from our mezze menu. Choose from the following light bites, perfect for grazing in the sunshine:

  • Beetroot hummus
  • Fresh olives
  • Couscous / cumin orange / coriander
  • Halloumi chips / chilli sauce
  • flatbread / harissa sauce
  • Crumbled feta / beetroot / parsley / toasted hazelnuts

There’ll also be a selection of tasty dishes available to purchase. Discover the full menu here.

We’re hopeful for nine weeks of wall-to-wall sun! However, if the Cornish weather tries to dampen proceedings, fear not. For any wet weather heading our way, we’ll reconvene our summer celebrations in The Great Hall.
