Lafrowda Festival is an annual celebration of community arts in St Just, Cornwall; and this year’s festival will feature buggy racing, processions and an outdoor theatrical adventure.
The name Lafrowda comes from the ancient name for the church lands where the little town of St Just stands today. St Just is the most westerly town in England and has a strong sense of Cornish heritage.
The first Lafrowda Festival took place in 1996 and the event has developed from a music festival into a two-week community arts festival. During the festival fortnight, Lafrowda provides an opportunity for local groups to showcase the wealth of creative talent in the St Just area. A wide range of organisations take part with something happening every day, from music and drama to workshops and quirky one-off events.
This year’s festival fortnight will have the theme of ‘Off the Page’. The fortnight promises plenty of fun-filled activities, including buggy racing, local landscape workshops, live music, an outdoor adventure from Miracle Theatre, community processions, and food and drink.
One of the highlights will be Lafrowda Day on Saturday 20th July, when the roads are closed so that the streets can be filled with stalls and entertainment.
