Summer sounds in Trengwainton's orchard 2018
On Saturday 30 June you can dance the afternoon and evening away to the sound of some of Cornwall’s finest live bands in the sheltered setting of Trengwainton’s walled orchard.
3 Daft Monkeys
Headlining will be the award-winning 3 Daft Monkeys; a dynamic, alternative folk band whose Celtic and Eastern influenced music is played with a sheer joy of life.
They’ve enjoyed success all over the UK and Europe and regularly been a support act for legendary folk rock band The Levellers.
Flats and Sharps
Flats and Sharps return with their blistering bluegrass, folk, country and pop that’s performed with a contagious energy and humour.
Having previously performed at the Country 2 Country Festival at the O2 in London and at the Proms in Hyde Park, they’ll be coming to us from a tour in Australia earlier this year.
Lots more music
Also performing will be The Smokin' Pilchards, singing sea shanty inspired songs with a mixture of folk and blues; Mitch B and the torpedoes - a funk, soul and blues band playing groovy interpretations of some classics pop songs from the last 40 years, plus a set from their lead singer Ryan Jones.
Starting the afternoon will be Holly Turton of Stone Roots, singing an acoustic set in her rich, soulful style.
Food and drink
As well as a feast for the ears you’ll be able to feast on great BBQ food from Roseworthy Farms along with some tasty vegetarian options from The Little Wonder café. If all that singing and dancing causes you to build up a thirst then there’ll also be a licensed bar available.
Timings and tickets
The gates will open at 2.30pm and the music will kick-off at 3.00pm. The bands will play until around 9.30, so bring a picnic rug or chair and settle down for over six hours of stonking good music.
Tickets are incredibly good value at only £10 for adults and £5 for children when purchased in advance (under 5s free). To be sure of yours you can book them here.
Come prepared for the vagaries of the Cornish weather as the event will only be cancelled in the event of extreme wet and windy conditions, but most of all come prepared to enjoy some great music in a beautiful setting.
