As Summer gets fully underway we make the most of the sunshine celebrating one of Cornwall’s most famous residents, enjoying the agricultural delights of Stithians and immersing ourselves fully into the growing Lafrowda Arts festival – a two week community extravaganza. Come and join us! 



This is now a two week community arts festival. The festival has parades throughout the day featuring local schools, workshops for all ages during the preceding fortnight and the town square has stalls and entertainment during festival day.
