WHAT TO EXPECTThe writers, poets and journalists appearing at the Port Eliot festival are encouraged to perform material they would not be given the opportunity to present at orthodox literary festivals – using their creativity to devise imaginative, interesting and entertaining shows, they provide experiences beyond merely reading aloud from their latest books and taking questions from the floor.
CAUGHT BY THE RIVERIn 2009 Caught by the River became a fixture at Port Eliot. Located at a glorious spot down by the estuary, Caught by the River always provide stellar line-ups featuring a mix of music and talk on the subjects of nature, culture and rock n roll.
THE FLOWER SHOWThe Port Eliot Flower Show pays homage to the traditional British summer flower show – but is infused it with Port Eliot's very own style and magic. Recent years have featured everything from an exhibition of scarecrows to The Veg Factor – a children's competition to create their favourite pop star out of vegetables.
