Crean Folk Camp runs from 10am on Monday 17th June until Friday 21st June with an informal concert involving everyone on the Friday afternoon. Participants are also encouraged to stay for a small public showcase on Saturday 22nd June in Penzance. All are also welcome to join us from the preceding Sunday 16th and stay until the following Sunday 23rd.
Staying a little later is particularly recommended as the gathering is timed to coincide with the local summer solstice festival of Golowan in Penzance.
Accommodation & Living
Camping with tents is free onsite with full amenities. Some limited rented accommodation is also available (for more info email us at firstname.lastname@example.org). Participants at Crean Folk Camp live communally, cooking together and sharing the costs of groceries. We would like to encourage all who feel comfortable to lend a hand in the kitchen whether large or small. Alcohol is arranged on an individual basis.
Crean Folk Camp is located in the far west of Cornwall near Land’s end. The area is remote and costal with a mix of steep granite cliffs and white sandy beaches. We are nestled in a sheltered valley about 30 minutes walk from the sea.
Our valley is roughly 6 hours travel from London whether by rail or road. The nearest railway station is Penzance. Regular services connect through the west-country to London Paddington (GWR) and north to Scotland (CrossCountry). Coaches are also available, though they are a lot slower. The final 10 miles can be traversed with local buses or a taxi.
