TRURO Cornwall TR3 6LQ
Head to Cornwall this May and take advantage of The Valleys luxury cottages by attending The Masked Ball’s 10th Anniversary, held in the beautiful town of Porthleven.
This wacky theatrical and immersive festival has made quite a name for itself over the years for its creativity and world class music acts that make this such a hit with locals and tourists alike.
The festival runs from Friday May 20th – Sunday May 22nd on the cliffs of Mounts Bay in Porthleven offering fantastic views with acts such as Basement Jaxx, Mike Skinner, Julio Bashmore, Jungle and deep house DJ’s Ben Pearce, Paul Woodford and Robert Owens providing the musical backdrop.
With a keen eye for detail and with an ability to curate chaos, the organisers continue to create a once in a lifetime sensory experience. The festival site is themed around the Grand Ball Room of a colonial-style mansion at its centre. As ever, beyond the check-in desk, party goers will have a truly eccentric expanse of spaces to explore, with shindigs in everywhere from The Study to The Parlour, from The Play Room to The Scullery. The mystery of all The Manor has to offer is part of getting lost in the moment, with all the magic of hidden cocktail bars, hidden performers and hide-aways of their own for attendees to find over the weekend.
The Masked Ball organiser Kevin Batt summed up this Cornish staple by saying:
“Our great team of artists, performers, musicians and DJs are planning a tenth birthday party that won’t just blow out candles on cakes, it’s gonna blow minds too!
It’s a place where rabbit impersonators serve watermelon slices in your pre-Ball cocktails and laser light shows illuminate spectacular go-go boys on stilts; where you’ll discover raves in caves, dens with dance floors, hidden bars, bathtubs, world-class dance clubs and an unrivalled line-up of international DJs playing everything from hip-hop to country”
This is festival of fun is happening close to our wide range of luxury cottages making it easier for you go and take advantage of this masked soiree before resting those dancing feet in ultimate comfort.
