St. Agnes Outdoor Festival - the OUTSID’ER  2015

St. Agnes Outdoor Festival - the OUTSID'ER 2015

April 10-12, 2015

St Agnes - Various

The St Agnes Outdoor Festival is back for it's third year.

10th - 12th April 2015.


Do you fancy taking a walk on the wild side, playing in a washed up orchestra or competing in a wacky race?

Join in the fun at this weekend-long celebration of the best that St. Agnes’ unique coastline and countryside has to offer!

Last year we saw hundreds of people getting involved in campfire cookery, sea-trash sculpture workshops, wild food foraging,  rock-pooling,  and enjoying a bit of open air opera on the cliffside!
Now in its third year Outsid’er is going from strength to strength, involving residents and visitors in three days of outdoor related fun, thoughout the parish of St. Agnes.

Each year we want to programme something new and creative; something that will encourage people to visit St Agnes and engage with our stunning landscape in really unique, innovative and inspirational ways. With the help of funding from FEAST, the Outsid'er 2015 will have it's very own Artist-in-Residence, creating an evolving piece of artwork over the three days of the festival.

Alongside this we have got planned a 'Push, Pull or Pedal' Wacky Races competition, Salt Roads Theatre, Star Gazing on the beacon, Washed up Orchestra and concert, A Cornish Language Heritage Walk, Surf Cinema, Den Building, Skate Ramps, Bike tours, a Photography competition, the Festival Launch Beast Feast, plus much much more.......

Perfect for all the family, The OUTSID'ER is all about getting out, getting stuck in and maybe trying something a little bit different...

Full programme and booking info to follow!

New to OUTSID'ER 2015 !!!

‘Push, Pull or Pedal’ the Wacky Beach Race, which combines many of the elements of the raft race that we love (making a vehicle, dressing up, racing and prizes), but on the sand!!!

The rules are, that your car creation must have wheels, there must be that at least two team members on the vehicle at all times, and the vehicle has to keep firmly on the sand, absolutely no carrying (or hidden engines!!). Other than that you can be as creative as you like when building your race mobile.

The race will take place Sunday the 12th April, where we will have a show of the cars in Trevaunace Cove car park from 3pm, and then at 4pm the cars will be taken down onto the beach for the Wacky Races to begin.

There will be prizes for the race winner, the best vehicle and of course for the best dressed team.
