We just came across this video on You Tube of a couple of people Snowboarding on Porthcurno beach yesterday, thought it was worth sharing …
We were surprised to wake up to snow here in Redruth on Saturday morning – here are a few images from a little walk up to Carn Brea. How come we only go for walks when it has snowed?
OK – so its not really Cornwall related and Man Like Me are not even a Cornish band… but we thought it was worth drawing your attention to the fact that the star act of this years Leopallooza festival, are now featuring in a new Ikea advert. We think it is brilliant, any thoughts?
Check out the Man Like Me performance at Leopallooza:
Leopallooza has made it through to the shortlist in this years UK Festival Awards and is in the running to collect two awards at the ceremony, taking place at the IndigO2, London on 18th November.
Up for ‘Best Small Festival’ and ‘The Grassroots Festival Award’, the support from attendees and the local community pledging their votes and getting the event through to the final stages has amazed the organisers of the 2000 capacity festival near Bude.
With over 250,000 votes cast in the awards so far, the competition is fierce. Not only would an award help push Leopallooza forward, but with the majority of the lineup at this years event being South West based would further reinforce the strength of the homegrown music scene.
Voting is now open at www.festivalawards.com until 27th October and you can enter into a draw to win two tickets to every winning festival. That could well be summer 2011 sorted!
Brought to you by the Hall for Cornwall and Zap Art, this is one of the most engaging and energetic public performances we have ever seen and a true spectacle. Featuring music, circus skills and aerial displays if you were not lucky enough to witness this first hand, then re live it below…

Locally born and educated Chris, who joined the Driftwood Hotel in September 2006 has been responsible for the quirky boutique hotel receiving its third AA rosette this year.
With high expectations and exact technique Chris’s flair and imagination comes through in every dish, giving a balance and depth of flavour that will have you coming back for more. Watch him cook his mouth watering slowly cooked shoulder of lamb, with seasonal, local peas and aubergine caviar.
A guide to Chris is coming soon…so keep checking back!
A bit of wood and a swimsuit is all you need at the World Bellyboard Championships, which are held every year and celebrate everything that is great about surfing in Cornwall.
In its eighth year and organised and hosted by the National Trust this year there is an addition to the entertaining bellyboarding, vintage swimsuits and cars in the form of a ‘a slice above the rest’ cake competition. So get your vintage delights together and head down to Chapel Porth for this relaxed throwback to the 1920’s.
