Port Eliot – truly a family festival

Going to festivals has been one of the top things to do over the summer for me and my hubster. However since the little baby A came along I thought things might get a bit more tricky.


That is until we heard about Port Eliot in Cornwall. As late night entertainment was practically ruled out for myself, I was very happy to discover that Port Eliot offers events, talks and activities from all kinds of spectrums. And to be honest, even around midnight I saw some other parents walk around with their children on the festival grounds.


My absolute favourite things to do were the workshops, and there were many, starting from golden calligraphy to sailor T-shirt making. Only downside – one had to queue to get your name down the list, which is not such an odd thing really at an English festival.


I managed to make myself a neckerchief and a paper flower, and even a tote bag for my husband.
What I found most inspring was the tent by Hush. Mandy Watkins, the founder gave a talk on how she set up the company, straight after being made redundant from her corporate role by starting to sell PJs. Have to say I am now absolutely in love for their PJs, wearing mine non stop, everywhere.
