To mark the tenth anniversary of the first Rescorla Festival, the festival will be touring some of the villages of mid-Cornwall this summer with a programme that includes music, poetry and the ever-popular Snail Creep:

On Friday 29 June, the festival programme started with a High Tea and Sankey Evening at the Rescorla Centre. The celebrations continued on Saturday 30 June with a food and music session at Rescorla before moving to Probus on Sunday 1 July for a packed programme of music, dance and poetry at the Hawkins Arms.

The good news for those that haven’t been able to attend so far is that the festival will continue its tour in Roche before moving back to Rescorla. The remaining programme is listed below:

Sunday 8 July – Music and Victorian Garden Party at the Hollies in Roche. Starts at 2.30pm.
