The Masked Ball
Starting life as a small ticket-only all-nighter for a few hundred like-minded hedonists in 2006, the event now attracts thousands of costumed revellers, alongside the dance scene’s biggest talents.
The three-day spring ball on a cliff takes place this year from 3-5 May 2019 on the cliffs at Beacon Crag, Porthleven and is a real launchpad to the Festival season. The event has become renowned for their artistic creativity, imaginative site layouts and hedonistic zest for having the best time humanly possible.
