St Andrew’s Arts Festival

Welcome to the annual St Andrew's Arts Festival Week!Our fifth annual festival week is here and is, as usual, full of wonderful events that celebrate the creative arts.From exhibitions, walks and workshops to concerts, quiet reflection and interactive dis-plays there is something for everyone to enjoy. This year our theme - "Look Up" - offers the chance to look at our world from a different perspective. Local artists, craftspeople, performers, musicians and pupils from Pennoweth, Trewirgie and Redruth schools have created works in various media to express their individual take on the theme.We are thrilled to welcome vertical dance company Yskynna who have performed at venues such as the Maritime Museum. This amazing group perform on ropes, silks and trapezes and have designed a site specific work for our festival. Performances are suitable for all ages and take place on two days of the week.Exhibitors this year include Portreath based artist Elizabeth Rowe and photographers Jason Hoole-Jackson and Jim Seth. Glassworker Mel Louis-Smith, veneer craftsman David Woolley, wood turner Dave Doble, silversmith Pete Probst, and members of the "Crafty People" group are exhibiting many examples of their beautiful handmade crafts.We have a packed events programme as usual including guided walks led by historian Linda Beskeen - two this year, one to Carn Brea and one around the town to find out what can be discovered by looking up - and author Tamsin Spargo returns to host an evening of poetry around our festival theme. There will be time for quiet reflection during our evening of contemplation and meditation, and there will be other pop up events occurring throughout the week so visit our website or follow social media for more information.Finally do join us for some wonderful musical experiences - the amazing, ever popular Young Persons Showcase Concert featuring many talented children and young people…

Bishop Philip’s Visit to the St Euny Outreach Project.

It was a grey and mizzly afternoon in Redruth, but Bishop Philip was given the warmest of welcomes at the ancient parish church of St Euny, starting with a quick update on the history of the church which has resulted in the interesting first view of the Tudor bell tower standing alongside the Georgian church.Thursday's Open Cafe was in full swing and the Bishop met with the churchwarden, Lucie and outreach worker, Clare.Following an offer of tea and cake, served by volunteers Margaret and Chris, the Bishop chatted to the craft group and demonstrated his prowess at playing the ukulele with the St. Euny Ukes.A few rousing songs later and it was time to say farewell.The open cafe is one of the projects run by Clare Brown, community outreach worker, on behalf of the DCC. Everyone is welcome to come along on a Thursday afternoon for tea, craft, company and music. There are also regular dog walks around Carn Brea which are held every six weeks or so. The next dog walk will meet at 10.30am outside St Euny Church on Saturday 30th March.There is a chance to join in with the ukulele playing and crafts on Thursday afternoons. Volunteers are always welcome, as are any people who just want to pop in for a cuppa and a chat. Please feel free to find out for yourselves.Lucie.
