We were delighted that the Green and Whitegold Festival of Clay, Gardens returned to St Austell on Saturday 26th June and was a huge success with satellite events taking place around St Austell Bay throughout June and July.
The Green and Whitegold Festival programme showcased what makes the St Austell area so special – highlighting the strong horticulture (green) connection with the famous sub-tropical gardens close-by and its unique China Clay (whitegold) heritage.
We brought an array of activities to St Austell to celebrate what a special place this is – but also to help safely reconnect our community after the challenging months of lockdown.
There was an exciting and diverse range of things to see, do and hear, including a choice of hands-on workshops, exhibitions, demonstrations, live music and roaming street performance, walks and talks.
We selected some fantastic traders selling seeds, plants and ceramic crafts, interspersed with representatives of local attractions and projects passionate about horticulture, biodiversity, public art, ceramic and clay culture.
