The Return of Hush & Friends

For four days this summer, we'll be returning to host the hush and friends 'chill out' area at the fabulous Port Eliot Festival in South East Cornwall, from Thursday 27th July to Sunday 30th July.

The family-friendly festival is held within the the rolling woodland and park of an ancient estate at St Germans, and hosts the brightest talent from fashion to music, flowers to food, science to outdoor swimming, books to hot tubs... truly one of the most unique festival experiences on the summer calendar. 

With everything from workshops, fabulous fashion talks and daily competitions taking place at our tent - we'll be bringing along some hush friends to make this the most magical weekend - complete with our very own a starry garden and meter wide disco ball rotating star! 

Here's an idea of what to expect, in addition to a few hints about how we'll be upping our festival game for the season ahead...

The hush starry garden is a must-see for any Port Eliot Festival goer. Find us opposite the Bowling Green and Hullaballo, in a woodland clearing just off the main path. Take a selfie under the disco ball star, chill out in hammocks and deckchairs, and add to the garden yourself by customising your own 3D metallic star and hanging it in the trees; everyone who does will receive a special gift and be entered into a daily prize draw.

Another main staple on the Port Eliot Festival schedule - Disco Yoga! Sophie Richie’s workout for the not-so-serious will transform the way you think about exercise. Set to a soundtrack of underground disco and house favourites, Disco Yoga is a class devised to banish the boredom of the gym and make you feel more a slave to the rhythm than the treadmill. All rounded off with Bloody Marys by our friends at Sipsmith…

Join our guest photographer (watch this space as we will be announcing soon!) on a walk around the festival site as they share their tips on how to take the best street-style photos. Learn a range of skills from spotting the perfect composition to getting your timing just right – all the better to capture those spontaneous and magical Port Eliot Festival moments.

We'll be hosting style talks from some well known hush friends over the course of the weekend, plus there will also be a mini pop-up shop for festival outfits should you forget any of the essentials!

Pyjamas are an essential part of any festival camping weekend – but are your PJs feeling a little sorry for themselves? As part of our PJ Amnesty, Port Eliot Festival goers are invited to bring a pair of old pyjamas along on Saturday morning - we will recycle them and provide you with a brand new pair worth £49.50 (while stocks last.) This year, the PJ Amnesty will be bigger and even better...

As the sun goes down, you’ll be able to watch films in the hush tent, tucked under cosy blankets, lounging on beanbags with drinks, popcorn and chocolate. Expect a stellar line up of classic, cult and contemporary films within the beautiful surroundings of the estate’s rhododendron garden providing a dreamy backdrop.
