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.

This show sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. It’s a little bit raw, very personal, and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense. It’s a show about hitting rock bottom, and just when you think things can’t get any worse, you meet a bloke…a bloke called John.

His energetic, compelling and passionate sound can mesmerise crowds, be it to two hundred people or twenty thousand.

If you’re a music enthusiast you won’t want to miss this.
