It all happens in Cornwall!

Lostwithiel’s quirky one day festival!
LostFest, on Sunday, 19th May, is on track for another day of foot-stomping music, madness and mayhem!

LostFest is an eclectic mix – there will be music and dance all over town to keep you entertained, stalls selling arts, crafts, antiques and food to browse, plus live demonstrations and workshops to watch. On top of all that there will also be special events and activities.

Stalls will be open from around 10.00am and music will kick off at 10.30am(ish)

Please follow the Park & Ride signs to avoid too much congestion in town. Or take the train – there will be several more trains than usual stopping at Lostwithiel on 19th May, and Lostwithiel Station is just a short stroll over the medieval bridge to where all the action takes place!

You can grab a beer at the Skinners tent and something to eat from the Food Village and enjoy live music all day long.

Demos & workshops

As ever there will be demos and workshops amongst the stalls at LostFest.


On the beach beside the river, next to the medieval bridge, there will be face painting, balloon sculpture and stalls plus a craft tent with free arts and crafts activities, music, dance and forest school sessions to keep kids (and parents!) busy. All run by Nurtured Nursery.

On King George V field there will be an inflatable assault course and soft play/ball pool area from Fun-tasia so the little ones can let off steam.
