    Before I wake - Minack Theatre & Visitor Centre

    Before I Wake: May 21st-25th
    In August 1914 a group of gardeners wrote their names on the wall of the Thunderbox, an outdoor toilet in the Heligan Estate. It was a last act of hope and camaraderie before marching off to fight in the first World War. Of the 13 men known to have enlisted, just four survived…
    The story of those men… their families, their friends and their community… is being brought vividly to life in a remarkable and heart-warming new play that marks the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI.

    Folk Festival - Bude

    Bude & Stratton Folk Festival is small friendly and very welcoming

    This Folk Festival is a friendly mix of folk events held on the late May Bank Holiday weekend 25-28 May 2018. It features music, song, dance, and storytelling, and there is a small programme of children’s events. The programme is published in April.

    Our friends at the Falcon Hotel have a special festival Beer-Fest that adds carefully curated speciality ales to the musical menu.

    The 2018 guest list so far... Against the Grain, Capella, Didjan, Gadarene, Georgia Lewis Trio, Hannah Cumming, Jackie Oates & Tristan Seume, Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith, Kitty Macfarlane, Martyn Babb, Reg Meuross, Sam Kelly Trio, Steve & Carmen Hunt , Thorn and Roses....

    Click HERE for festival information.

    What’s it all about?

    The Festival welcomes numerous talented guest performers, many internationally known, who give concerts and appear in other events during the festival. Local dance sides perform, and we are delighted to welcome children from local schools, who give a dance display on Saturday morning. There are concerts, sing-arounds, sessions, a folk club, a barn dance, open-mics, fringe events, storytelling, a folk service and workshops.

    What happens?

    The Falcon Hotel hosts several concerts including the ‘Cream of Cornwall and Devon’ showcase of local talent, the barn dance and workshops. The Falcon and other local venues welcome participants in impromptu music sessions

    The Rugby Club is the home for singers. There are sing-arounds, a Folk Club evening, short concerts, late night sings, workshops and informal gatherings.

    Children's events start with instruction in school leading to demonstration dances on Bark House Green. They are provided at no cost to schools or parents.

    St Michael’s Church has wonderful acoustics and hosts daily open-mic sessions. This is a great place to listen, for free, to the great talent the festival attracts and have a coffee and home-made cake or a light-bite lunch in support of church funds. There is a non-denominational folk service on Sunday.

    This friendly Festival has always had a “joining-in” ethos. We are grateful to the core of professional artists who do just that outside of their formal events. But we encourage everyone’s participation. There are workshops for musicians and singers of all abilities and a special concert on Monday showcases some of these.

    In other local venues free Fringe Events feature selected quality performers.

    How can you take part?

    The Festival offers weekend tickets and individual event tickets at very fair prices. Book on the WEBSITE or call 07736 374003. Camping is available at the Rugby Club for weekend season ticket holders. Local campsites and accommodation can be found through Bude TIC.

    The team at Bude & Stratton Folk Festival are most grateful to their Festival Patron Jim Causley and all their guest performers, for the continuing support of Bude’s Town and County Councillors and Festival Friends. Thanks are also due to the Committee and staff of Bude Rugby Club and to the new owners of the Falcon Hotel for their commitment and encouragement.

    On 25 May, Invisible Worlds – the Eden Project’s major new exhibition in the completely transformed Core Building – opens to the public!

    Invisible Worlds reveals the world beyond your senses – too big, too small, too fast, too slow, too far away in space and time – brought to life via amazing interactive exhibits, extraordinary artworks and mind-blowing facts.

    Join us this half-term, 26 May – 3 June, to celebrate the launch with a packed line-up of special guests, hands-on fun and exciting events for all the family.

    Sciencedipity
    Drop in and get hands-on with cool activities, experiments and interactive displays, as you delve into a fascinating microscopic world with Sciencedipity.

    The Travelling Tardigrades
    Roll up, roll up!... join the Eden Storytellers for some incredible tales, as they introduce you to some microscopic monsters.

    The Lab
    Experience real-time experiments as Eden’s scientists (and other friendly experts) explore some of the secrets of the Invisible World with a rolling programme of talks and showcase workshops.

    Plus lots more, including Make Your Own Microbe crafts and soft play for the under-5s. We’ll also have wonderful pop-up appearances and performances throughout the week – look out for Guerilla Science’s mutant flies, guests Gestalt Arts’ fungal foes, and walkabout microbes. And don’t miss the world premiere of the Invisible Worlds Live Microscopy show 
    from Marty Jopson of The One Show fame.

    Invisible Worlds is Eden’s new permanent exhibition, open from 25 May. To find out more and to view the full programme, visit the invisible-worlds WEBPAGE
