Launch Evening is on 16th March when the brochures will be launched prior to them being in every outlet we can think of. This year we have introduced a ‘Friends of the Festival’ sponsorship. Many have already joined and for an annual subscription of just £10 you will receive newsletters etc. but even better there is a 10% discount on tickets for 10 days prior to the Box Office going public.
There’s a Friend’s invitation to the Launch on Friday 16th March from 6pm to 8pm in the Millennium Rooms at St. Mawes. Refreshments will be Cornish ciders and Cornish cheeses, and of course the chance to order your tickets. For information about becoming a Friend please contact Sue Fallick on 01872 580050 or email [email protected].
There is more information and a form on: http://roselandfestival.co.uk/friends-sponsors-2018/
This year Roseland Community Transport and the Roseland Festival are linking up. Our local community bus will be running two trips to the Festival. The first one is to ‘Up the Creek’, a boat trip, on Friday 27th April and the second to ‘WW1, Trounce Guy and Friends’ at Veryan Church on Thursday 3rd May. The mini bus will be picking up from village centres and combined bus and event tickets can be booked at the Roseland Visitor Centre in St.Mawes, 01326 270440.
As in past years, events will stretch across the Roseland peninsula from St. Anthony Head to Tregony and from Tolverne to Pendower. Venues, as ever, range from hotels to halls, and churches to pubs.
This year we have two FREE events, one which we hope will appeal to 11 to 16 year olds who are interested in drama. It’s a workshop with Miracle Theatre and we are particularly pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to local youngsters.
We are also very pleased to be able to link in with our community bus. For 2018 the bus will be transporting to two events, ‘Up the Creek’ and ‘WW1, Trounce Guy and Friends’. If you would like to use this facility please buy your combined bus and event ticket at the Roseland Visitor Centre in St.Mawes, 01326 270440.
We have a variety of music from the classics with Emma Abbate and Ashley Riches performing ‘A Musical Zoo’, to the foot tapping Kit Hillbillies, and the acclaimed Canoryan Lowen Choir singing at St. Just Church in the middle weekend. Then there’s talks ranging from history to nature and minerals. The ever popular Playrite youngsters will be singing songs from ‘An American Songbook’ and if you want a hands-on experience there’s a pottery workshop.
We look forward to seeing you at the Launch Evening on Friday 16th March and during the two weeks of the Festival from 21st April to 5th May.
