Win weekend tickets to the Port Eliot Festival

Get free entry to a celebration of ideas set in 100 acres of beautiful Cornish countryside

LAST UPDATED AT 16:19 ON Fri 4 Jul 2014

The Week has teamed up with Port Eliot Festival to offer a pair of weekend tickets to the annual celebration of words, music, food, fashion and fun.

Undeniably stylish but very relaxed, the festival is a living extension to Port Eliot’s ancient and beautiful stately home and mediaeval monastery, which sit in more than 100 acres of woodland gardens and parkland in southeast Cornwall.

Port Eliot is now as obsessed with food, fashion, music and flowers as it is with books.

The possibilities are boundless: embark on a sonic adventure with the British Library’s natural sounds curator, participate in a quick interview about your father, flaunt a custom costume by Barbara Hulanicki or settle in for a candle-lit performance in Port Eliot’s church.
