We’ve teamed up with Carn to Cove and Tresanton Hotel to offer our readers the chance to win a weekend for two at the scenic Tresanton Hotel in St Mawes, plus a pair of concert tickets.
We often hear about the lack of a cohesive live music circuit in the south-west corner of England, especially when it comes to world and folk. Poor travel links, small-capacity venues and dispersed population all contribute to a dearth of headline events in the region, with the exception of large-scale summer festivals.
Carn to Cove, a rural touring scheme based in Cornwall, are one of several organisations trying to fix the problem by bringing world and folk music to local communities throughout the year. Tim Smithies, project director of Carn to Cove and the Music Out There venture, describes how through their work ‘wonderfully varied community spaces are filled with poetry, laughter, music, drama, stories and dancing.’
This September the project launches their autumn season where they’ll welcome a host of fantastic artists to the Cornish coast, including Senegalese multi-instrumentalist Amadou Diagne & Group Yakar, acclaimed folk duo Ninebarrow, Moscow Drug Club and live favourite, Budapest Café Orchestra.
To celebrate the launch of this season, we are delighted to offer two tickets to a show of your choice, plus a two-night stay in one of Cornwall’s top-most hotels, the Tresanton, situated in the idyllic fishing village of St Mawes.
Terms & Conditions (please read before entering): One double/twin room for a two-night stay at the Tresanton Hotel St Mawes, inclusive of breakfast for two and complimentary cream tea on arrival. Offer can be claimed from September 22 2016-March 31 2017, subject to availability. The prize also includes two tickets to the concert of the winner’s choice within the Carn to Cove autumn season. The winner will be contacted to confirm their chosen concert. This prize is non-transferable, cannot be resold to another party and no cash alternative will be offered. Closing date August 11 2016. *By entering this competition, you agree to share your email and postal data with Tresanton, Carn to Cove and the Mark Allen Group.
