Taking place 25-28 July 2019, Port Eliot Festival is the original free-ranging festival of ideas, set in the rolling grounds of the Port Eliot estate in the Rame Peninsula of Cornwall

Whether you're swimming in the estuary, picnicking under a 300 year-old tree, rocking out at the Park Stage, canoeing on the river, catching an intimate gig in the church, watching a cooking demo in the Big Kitchen or dancing 'til the wee hours in the Boogie Round – the place is yours for the weekend.

Port Eliot wanders from words and music to fashion and food and onto wellbeing, art, film and comedy. This year's early confirmations include award-winning BBC Newsnight and election presenter, Emily Maitlis; one of the country's finest and favourite stand-ups, Shappi Khorsandi; explorer, filmmaker and Tribe adventurer Bruce Parry; as well as Aldous Harding, Andy Burrows, Charlotte Church's Late Night Pop Dungeon, Kernow King, Russell Norman, Murray Lachlan Young Aardman model-making, Canadian canoeing and parkour workshops, to name a few of this year's treats. More to be announced soon.
