The Great Estate – Lineups Announced

As Storm Doris passes and winter turns into spring, so at Scorrier House we are planning for our major event of 2017: The Great Estate. This “rambunctious garden fete” is a first for us, not over the many centuries that Scorrier House has stood here has it seen an event like this before. Of course there is still much to do before 2nd June, but we are already excited to welcome you through the secret garden into our great estate. Here is what we can reveal so far…

The lineup…

 

ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN
Spanning 40 years of their cult music, they will be gracing the stage as your Saturday night headliners. We are expecting a truly classic set of iconic music, from ‘The Killing Moon’ to ‘Lips Like Sugar’ and ‘The Cutter’.

 

CRAIG CHARLES
Legendary BBC Radio 6 DJ, Funk and Soul Connoisseur will be hosting and programming the entire Sunday line up with a selection of his favourite live acts whilst spinning his own blend of Super Soul Sunday Tunes.

 

THE ELECTRIC SWING CIRCUS
A 6-piece fusion of saucy 20’s swing and stomping electro beats. With an explosive sound that reverberates back through time, with their own unique style of swing they always bring the party.

 

SHOWHAWK DUO
British guitarists Mikhail Asanovic and Jake Wright, collectively known as the Showhawk Duo, are sure to dazzle us with their guitar mastery. They frequently break down the barriers between acoustic and electronic music – just look at what they played on Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

 

So with all these brilliant acts, why are we calling this a “garden fete” and not a music festival, you may ask. Simply look at the other attractions that will be dispersed throughout the Gardens and Estate. We are encouraging all ages to join us over the weekend so there is something for everyone…

 

SECRET GIN GARDEN

HOT AIR BALLOON RIDES

CAMEL RACING

WOODLAND SILENT DISCO

BURLESQUE DANCING

HOT TUBS

VINTAGE FAIRGROUND RIDES

JUDY’S VINTAGE FAIR

and MANY MORE

 

And of course there will be plenty of delicious food stalls, including Thyme and Tide, Jumunjy Thai Street Food, The Village Deli, Woody’s Pizza

 

We hope you can join us for this tremendous weekend in June. Tickets are now on sale here.

Scorrier House Hosts the Great Estate

Scorrier House Festival

We’re very excited to announce that a new “rambunctious” event is coming to Scorrier House in 2017: The Great Estate

 

From 2nd to 4th June, 2017, Scorrier House will host Cornwall’s grandest “garden fete”! Themed on Scorrier Estate itself and the centuries of history within, this three day extravaganta promises to be a completely unique. Not only will there be thrills such as camel racing, burlesque dancing and gin gardens, but this is the first time that Scorrier Estate will truly be open to the public: Discover poetry corners hidden in historic gardens, camp (or glamp) in the beautiful parkland and see great acts perform in our amazing grounds.

Just minutes from Cornwall’s beautiful coastline, Scorrier House is easily accessible, yet totally private. For three days in June, all that will change, as we open up our historic garden, ancient woodlands and majestic parkland and put on some marvelous entertainment to entice all ages into our ‘Great Estate’.

 

Tickets can be found at www.greatestatefestival.co.uk But in the meantime we’ll be sharing some news, insights as well as pictures of the venue on instagram, facebook, twitter and here on our blog.
