Port Eliot Festival returns in 2017 to ancient estate at St Germans in south east Cornwall between Thursday 27th and Sunday 30th July 2017.
Set in the same location as the legendary Elephant Fayre of the seventies and eighties, the festival started up as the Eliot Lit Fest early in the millennium and, in the 13 years years of its existence, has grown to offer a rich diversity of arts and entertainment encompassing music, literature, poetry, comedy, film, art, and more.
The list of confirmed 'artists' come from the world of music, comedy, writing, photography, cookery and more. On a music tip there's musician/producer/songwriter Nick Lowe, plus The Lilac Time, This Is The Kit, The Comet Is Coming, Chris Difford, Rose Elinor Dougall, Melt Yourself Down, Rozi Plain, some down-beat dance from A Love from Outer Space: Andrew Weatherall & Sean Johnston, The Parrots, and the irrepressible two-hit wonder John Otway.
There's also performance artist/musician Cosey Fanni Tutti, art photographer Martin Parr, writers and authors Michele Roberts, Eimear McBride, David Keenan, Rowan Pelling, poet Murray Lachlan Young, comedian Jeremy Hardy, comic storytelling from Tom Wrigglesworth, Mitch Benn, comic character John Shuttleworth, chefs Gizzi Erskine, Nathan Outlaw, Thomasina Miers, and Miguel Barclay, art installation Project Adrift, and Charlie Baker.
