2017 events:

Kernow LevyLostFest is an eclectic mix - there was music and dance all over town to keep everyone entertained, stalls selling arts, crafts, antiques and food to browse, plus live demonstrations and workshops to watch.

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

Medieval Battle Re-enactment

Kernow Levy invaded Lostwithiel again!  They set up camp in St Bartholomew's churchyard and there were medieval fights around town throughout the day.

Renaissance Historical Dance Society 

Established in 1994, the RHDS are 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, balloon sculpture 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 Nurtured Nursery.

Returning for a third year, 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 LGM One.  Their sound is a perfect clash of punk rhythm, dark indie vocals, and catchy ‘party’ soundtracks!

Then from about 7.00pm it was the turn of our main band, the Gumbo Flyers.  The cajun and zydeco aces have perfected the sounds of rural Louisiana and given the music their own unique stamp and never fail to impress with their hot and sweaty, high energy grooves.
