Falmouth Soul Sensation set to support R&B Legend

Gino Washington coming to St Austell 'Festival of Fun'

Restormel Arts ‘Festival of Fun’ will be held over Easter weekend – 14/15/16th April 2017. Working closely with organisations and business representatives in and around St Austell, the Arts charity are linking up a variety of venues and people to deliver a wide range of events involving the whole community.

With the aim of creating a programme that is accessible to all ages and backgrounds, there will be a raft of free activities alongside some ticketed shows including a headline performance R&B legend Gino Washington and his Ram Jam Band.

Free pop up surprises will be in evidence across the town and include SWAMP Circus workshops and performance, dance and song workshops, flashmob choir and flashmob dance, Big Beat Junk Band,  Pooch Party In the Park, Easter Bonnet Competition, Yarn Bombing, giant bubbles, a Grand Pub Quiz, Open Mic and much more.

White River Cinema will hold a one off screening of a popular family film at reduced ticket prices for families.

Wheal Martyn will host a free exhibition of work from Roseland Observatory and a ticketed Jazz Brunch on Sunday 16th April when local duo S’Wonderful Jazz will entertain with their own brand of mellow, laid back Sunday sounds. In keeping with welcoming everyone, tickets to enjoy the Jazz will be kept at the very reasonable price of £5 with the option to purchase a delicious Brunch in the Wheal Martyn restaurant.

The final night of the weekend is one for fans of the very best soul music with a closing gig at the Keay Theatre. Restormel Arts are delighted to announce the headline band is the mighty Geno Washington and his Ram Jam Band with support from Falmouth’s fabulous Soul Sensation. Ready Steady Mod DJ Martin Bate will be spinning some tunes to round things off.

Tickets for the Jazz Brunch and Geno Washington will shortly be available from www.crbo.co.uk or
