Going back to the place of her very beginning is Lily Allen, who is the latest act revealed for the diverse Port Eliot Festival, which takes place in the park and woodlands of the Port Eliot Estate, St Germans, Cornwall from Thursday 25th and Sunday 28th July 2019. Lily revealed sometime in the past that she was conceived at Port Eliot Festival's anarchic 1980s predecessor the Elephant Fayre.
Lily will be in discussion with Guardian writer Sophie Heawood on the Park Stage, she'll be DJ-ing after dark in the woods, and in the children's adventure spot Wildings Wood she might read a story as the sun goes down.
Port Eliot Festival has music, food, fashion, comedy, art, wellbeing, wildlife and plenty besides, there are no off-limits ‘luxury’ areas and no in-your-face sponsors – Port Eliot becomes yours for the weekend. Among this year’s line-up are Emily Maitlis, Dame Zandra Rhodes, Aldous Harding, Charlotte Church’s Late Night Pop Dungeon, Patrick Gale, Bruce Parry, Robyn Hitchcock, Simon Armitage, Shappi Khorsandi, Robin Ince, Beak., The Orielles, Andy Burrows, Simon Farnaby, Stealing Sheep, Paul Simonon, Alice Temperley, Russell Norman, Aardman Animations and many more.
