The Awenek Festival is a free event on Saturday 16th September, using the beautiful gardens of Heligan as a backdrop to an array of hands-on fun and interactive Cornish cultural, arts, creative and heritage-based activities. Visitors will be given the chance to explore the gardens and watch demonstrations from creative artists, take part in Make and Take activities, listen to Cornish music and enjoy Cornish dancing and storytelling. The Festival will be a celebration of Cornish cultural identity, welcoming to all and full of sensory and immersive experiences. Try your hand at Cornish wrestling, dance a Nos or eat an Iron Age Cornish cream team. You can even sit back and watch a Cornish play or cheer on your favourite Cornish Celtic tribe in an exciting end of the day battle scene!
