What's On Guide: September 2015
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
When? 1st - 6th September
Gorsedh Kernow is a celebration of the Celtic spirit of Cornwall, and encourages people to take interest in all that is Cornish. This includes history, the language, art, music and much more. The aim of the Esedhvos Festival is to link Cornwall with other Celtic areas, and create a single link between them all.
The Esedhvos Festival is held at a different location in Cornwall every year, and will be hosted in St Austell this year, which is less than a half an hour drive from our Fowey hotel. Featuring a range of traditional ceremonies, this truly is a celebration of everything Cornish!
Full details about the event can be found on the website: http://www.gorsethkernow.org.uk/esedhvos.html
Festival of Food at the Eden Project
When? 10th - 27th September
The Eden Project's Festival of Food will be running from Thursday 10th to Sunday 27th September, and will feature cooking demonstrations from some of the finest celebrity chefs, including Phil Vickery, Jean Christophe Novelli and Ken Hom. Details are limited at the moment, but will be released at the following link when confirmed, so keep your eyes peeled: https://www.edenproject.com/visit/whats-on/festival-of-food-in-cornwall.
The price of the Festival of Food is included in normal entry price, and the Eden Project is only located a short distance from our hotel, so could well be the perfect day out.
Heritage Open Days
10th - 13th September
The Heritage Open Days in Cornwall offer the chance for everybody to visit iconic properties and landmarks that are either usually closed to the public, or charge for entry. This means anyone can visit them for free, and celebrate the historic architecture, as well as enjoying a range of activities which take place at these locations.
There are a range of locations to visit right across Cornwall, with the Gribbin Daymark being the closest to our hotel. If you would like to take a look at the full range, they can be found here: http://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/directory/county/cornwall.
