Hélène Chaussavoine

Whether you are coming to Cornwall on holiday as a couple or with the whole family, there is plenty of events taking place around the county in July to keep everyone busy.

Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Museum

Whether you are an artist yourself or simply passionate by St Ives' community of artists, the Tate organises on 6th July a private walk to discover Barbara Hepworth's inspirations and favourite locations in St Ives. An expert guide will show you the way to Rosewall Hill where you will have the opportunity to put yourself in the artist's shoes and even do your own sketch.

Huguettes Caland's new exhibition start this weekend and will through the whole summer offering the chance to St Ives' visitors to do some life drawing with the artist on 10th July or to discover the exhibition with Huguette Caland on 17th July. These 2 events require to book in advance so don't hesitate to visit the Tate Website for more info.

Eden Project

Once again the Eden Project has organised many events to keep us entertained during the holiday. The Artificial Creator Exhibition starts on 15th June and will show the creations of 5 artists inspired by nature who have created and modified their work with Artificial Intelligence. They will explore different innovative ways of expressions to continuously transform their design and we will get to contemplate the permanent development of their forms.

If you are a food lover as much as we are, make sure to book your table for a lovely dinner in the Mediterranean biome on 29, 30 or 31 July. The restaurant will offer you a unique dining experience you will be able to enjoy surrounded by olive trees, herbes and flowers from the south of France. As this is the perfect place to relax after a tasty meal, why not stay a bit later and enjoy a jug of Sangria with friends on the terrace?

Minack theatre

If you have been in Cornwall before but never had the chance to visit the Minack Theatre, this is definitely a go-to destination whilst on holiday here. This wonderful theatre full of history will take your breath away with the wonderful view overlooking the sea. Grab a cushion and a blanket (or ask our office for some if you don't have any), take a sit and experiment watching a play en plein air in the comfort of the warm summer air.
