What’s on This June in Cornwall

Celebrate summers return this June in Cornwall. From singing your heart out to shanties or enjoying cocktails by the coast, June has it all.

Open Studios


1st-5th June


All over Cornwall

Discover artwork all around Cornwall.

Between Saturday 28 May and Sunday 5 June, 327 artists, designers and makers from all corners of Cornwall will share their studio spaces and artistic practice as they throw open their doors and welcome visitors to discover, discuss and purchase original work. From Porthtowan to Porthleven and Lamorna to Looe, potters, painters and printmakers; textile artists and designers; sculptors and silversmiths will showcase the boundless possibilities of composition, shape and form.

Guests can curate their own art trail by following those distinctive orange Os along Bronze Age footpaths and winding lanes, up granite steps and into cobbled courtyards, to studios in net-lofts and fish cellars; barns and blacksmith’s forges; smallholdings and shipping containers. Witness the power of creativity to transform the human experience and transport us to ephemeral other worlds.

You can find out which locations you can visit and all about the different artists, here.
