On top of all that there were also special events and activities - for example:


Kernow LevyMedieval Battle Re-enactment

The Black Company

The Black Company portrays a 'free company' of mercenary soldiers during the Wars of the Roses period in British history (1455 to 1487).  Here is their website.


Renaissance Historical Dance Society

Established in 1994, the RHDS is a Devon-based historical dance group specialising in the performance of 15th, 16th, 17th and 19th century court and country dances from England and the Continent, together with contemporary crafts and social activities.  Take a look at their website here.

Demos & workshops

As ever there were demos and workshops amongst the stalls at LostFest. 



On the beach beside the river, next to the medieval bridge, there was face painting and stalls plus a craft tent with free arts and crafts activities, music, dance and forest school sessions to keep kids (and parents!) busy. All run by Lostwithiel Pre-School.

On King George V field there was an inflatable assault course and soft play/ball pool area from Fun-tasia so the little ones could let off steam.


History of the town

As in previous years, visitors had the chance to find out more about Lostwithiel by exploring the town's museum for an insight into the history of this ancient town. 


Evening entertainment

From around 5.30pm on the main stage we had Stevie and the Masquerades.  A fresh, dark electro duo with an atmospheric live show drenched in synth-pop, 80's inspired guitars and lyrical melancholia

Then from about 7.00pm it was the turn of our main band, Roving Crows. More details about evening bands.
