In 1997 the first Daphne du Maurier Festival of Arts and Literature was held to commemorate the 90th anniversary of Daphne du Maurier’s birth.
Designed to be a mix of guided walks of the area, an exhibition to celebrate Daphne’s life and works with talks about Daphne du Maurier by visiting professors and authors, the event was part of Restormel Borough Council’s Culture Department to bring a Festival to the South Coast of Cornwall.
With an Art Trail and some Secret Gardens, guided walks, workshops and an array of authors, commentators and musicians – there’s plenty to see and do in wonderful surroundings.
We are looking forward to welcoming many Festival goers again this year. Whether it’s your first time or you have been a regular since 1997, you are from afar or just down the road, we look forward to welcoming you.
