With live entertainment, food and pub games to keep everyone entertained.  Set in the grounds of Gyllngdune Gardens, flanked by the cast iron veranda of the Princess Pavillion and with a view across a stunning Autumnal bay.

Over the last 176 years the estate which once stretched from De Pass Road along to the Membly hall may have passed through several owners and decreased considerably in size but has long hosted large all weather events and festivals. So while you sit and sip your drinks imagine the the Royal Mail Steamer that the cast iron and timber slated seats, added in 1907, were taken from. Or, wander down and admire the shell adjourned restored groto’s.

 Big Draw Shop

The Big Draw Spans fifteen Countries and consists of over 900 events intended to get everyone to save the fate of drawing. With a lamp post that incites images of a C.S.Lewis Narnia and a cast iron bandstand that makes a child of the 70’s think of Trumpton, Princess Pavillion is the perfect location for inspiring content at the largest drawing festival in the world.

Working with artist in residence Ruth Pardy, families and individuals are invited to come together and, ‘Draw Tomorrow‘.

And when you need to take a break and getting the creative thoughts going again? Well aside from a wonderful restaurant to dine in you can take a walk across the road, down some old stone twisty steps, through a tunnel and to the beach that was once the private beach of the Gyllyngdune estate.

Which event are you looking forward to most?

    Both of these events sound fantastic. The Princess Pavilion and Gyllyngdune Gardens are such great venues – we are so lucky to have them here in Falmouth.
