Location: Mount Edgcumbe House & Country Park, Cremyll, Torpoint, Cornwall PL10 1HZ
The setting for this gorgeous festival just couldn’t get much more magical than this! Really stunning views and gardens on this beautiful hillside haven of tranquility. Join hundreds of faes and visions of mythical loveliness at this very special event.
Under 7’s are FREE, and there is a Faery School where your little pixies and fairies can learn to hula hoop and take part in all the other lovely activities on offer.
Festival founder and organiser, Karen Kay says, “Almost everyone was told fairy stories as a child, and it’s something that is very deep within us all, so that’s why I think my faery events have become so popular – because everyone can relate, even if it’s through some distant childhood memory.”
This year we have so many wonderful things for visitors to see and do, and everything is included in the ticket price (except for food and purchases made from the food, bar, and craft stalls).
Once inside the site, you’ll feel as if you have been transported into a ‘real life’ fairyland full of all kinds of magical creatures, with wings, wands, and sparkle!
The music stage runs from midday until midnight each day, and every night you’ll see a fire Faery show in the Faery Kingdom Arena. There is also the Eartheart Wonderland Bar inside the giant Dragon’s belly!
“The UK is known worldwide for it’s folklore and fairytales, so it makes sense that people would wish to travel to the UK, and more importantly the south west of England, to visit a faery themed family event. Once you cross over the Tamar Bridge, it’s like stepping into a magical bubble, I suppose that’s what some folks call ‘fairyland’. It really is a tangible feeling, and you can feel that the faeries really do live here on this ancient Celtic land.”
As well as activities and fun for the little ones, there’s a whole heap of fun for big faeries too. With performances from a diverse range of bands, there is bound to be a musical delight for every musical taste!
Emily Carding shares her experience of the 3 Wishes Fairy Fest 2011 below.
It’s very well organised and very little waiting. A lot of happy campers in evidence!
The music is always fantastic, especially in the evenings and there is so much going on all day. I hardly saw my daughter all day at the last event! She was 8 at the time, and there was no worries at all. There was so much supervision and awareness, it’s so safe – a real community. The venue is gorgeous too!
There were plenty of mobile toilet units, or proper loos down at the house. Maps are provided and it was very easy to find your way around.
It’s so safe for children, everyone looks out for each other and there are plenty of stewards throughout.
We’ll be going every year. 10/10
