5 things to do this weekend

How is it almost the end of November already? Here are five things to make the most of your weekend... which starts on Thurs, obvs!


Eden Sleep Out, 25 Nov

For the last seven years the Eden Project has hosted an annual Sleep Out outside the Biomes and the events have raised thousands of pounds for two charities, St Petrocs and the Amber Foundation.

Last year people were invited to join in remotely on the night, sleeping outside in your garden, otherwise on the floor at home – and 84 participants raised £10,000. This year, with proof of vaccination and/or a negative PCR or Lateral Flow Test, Eden is once again opening its doors for the real life, Sleep Out experience in 2021 – tickets cost £25.

Alternatively, put together a Christmas Dinner in a Box for Cornwall Christmas Box – the charity and local volunteer businesses collect them all up at the start of December and them distribute them to people in Cornwall who need them the most.


Festive Late Night Shopping, Duchy of Cornwall Nursery, Lostwithiel, 25 & 26 Nov, 5.30pm (and selected Dec dates too)

It’s loyalty cardholders only to the first festive late-night shopping evening at the gorgeous Duchy of Cornwall Nursery on 25th (but they are easy to get and free in store!) Lostwithiel Town Band will be playing seasonal, cheery tunes and there are complimentary mince pies, mulled wine & apple juice on offer, making it a magical evening for one and all. Book supper and make a night of it! Everyone welcome on the 26th, and selected dates in Dec too.

After a two year gap the St Ives Winter Festival is back this weekend with local choirs and performances taking over Tate St Ives, new family activities and three new community-focussed art commissions launching at once.

Long-term Hall for Cornwall supporter and ex-trustee, Clare Latimer, worked with the Hall for Cornwall team to approach several renowned UK artists with a shared affection for Cornwall, asking for their support by kindly donating artworks for a community raffle.
