Taking place around the villages of St Mawes and Portscatho, the original idea of the festival was to promote the local community, provide a platform for local talent, and to give people a reason to continue to visit the Roseland after the traditional holiday season had ended. Now in its 7th year, the Roseland Festival provides a welcome autumn event in one of the most beautiful parts of the county.
The festival hosts a tremendous range of events including talks, films, poetry and literature, heritage exhibition, music, craft fair, guided walks and much more so there's something for everyone to enjoy all in the lovely setting of the Roseland Peninsula.
With over 40 individual events held over the two week festival, there’s plenty to see and do. Music ranges from the classical to Jazz, there are talks and readings from authors, performances by local theatre groups and exhibitions both historical and artistic along with a selection of walks, pub sing-alongs and quizzes.
