Situated less than a 10-minute drive away from what we think is one of the best boutique hotels in Cornwall is the glorious Eden Project, aside from the beautiful nature found in the biomes, they regular hold fun filled events for people of all ages.

We have looked at some of the best events happening here over the next six weeks and selected five our favourites that you can visit when staying at The Cormorant. Read them below:

Rainforest Canopy Walkway - The Weather Maker

Saturday 18 - Sunday 19 March 2017 sees the launch of the 'Weather Maker' in the rainforest biome where they will be hosting a whole weekend of exciting activities that will include acrobatic aerial displays by Swamp Circus, interactive stations explaining how rainforests make their own weather and an extended canopy walkway that will put you at the very top of the trees!

There will be informative talks, food tastings, hands-on experiments with the Met Office, canopy walkway tours, live storytelling, face painting and much more!

Mother's Day

On the 26th March the Eden Project will be celebrating mums everywhere by offering free entry for mums and grandmas! Due to the rather mild winter, we have had down here in the Duchy, the Eden Project is experiencing one of their most amazing springs in years in terms of flowers, plants and tree blooms.

This makes Mothering Sunday one of the best times to stroll around the biomes and gardens. What's best is that the Mediterranean biome will be offering up delicious cuisine such as Eden's antipasti, baked focaccia, goats' cheese and red pepper Tortellini, Paella, Tuscan Bean Salad and Cornish fruit panna cotta to name just a few of these tasty dishes!

Horticulture Course

The Eden Project are offering up a one-day course on the 25th March that will teach you everything you need to know about growing media and potting. You will spend the day honing your skills on the methods of establishing plants in containers, the mixing of growing media and learning about the properties of different soil media. If you think you have green fingers and are a keen amateur horticulturist than this is a highly enjoyable day that should not be missed!

Storytelling

Every day in the Citrus Grove in the Mediterranean biome at 12pm and 2pm are the Eden's Storytellers telling all kinds of tales; fables about Amazonian plants and Cornish folk stories are just some of the stories being told here. With their highly enthusiastic re-telling's and ability to engage every member of the crowds, this is one activity that shouldn't be missed no matter your age!

2017 Wellcome Image Awards

The Eden Project is one of only 15 centres in the world to host the annual exhibition, now in their 20th year, the Wellcome Image Awards are Wellcome's most visually stunning celebration of science, medicine and life. The Awards recognise and acknowledge the creators of informative, visually captivating and technically brilliant imagery that communicate important aspects of healthcare and biomedical science.

The year's awards feature a 3D-printed model of the brain pathway responsible for human language, an artificial clip-in ocular lens used for cataract treatment and 'Chrysalis', a project that highlights the intrigue, imagination and precision behind scientific research.

The winning images will be on display at the Eden Project from 16 March until 16 July 2017.
