April was another very successful month for ticking things off my bucket list with visits to both Kennall Vale and the Tregothnan Garden Opening. I also managed to check out the Porthleven Food Festival and Rogue Theatre that I had featured in my Things to do – April 2016 blog.
Here are a few things that I want to try and do this month:
Obby Oss – 2nd May
Each year Padstowians return from all over the world to participate in this annual celebration and this year the event falls on a public holiday. The two osses parade throughout the town a few times during the day so there is plenty of opportunity to catch them. The parking is normally difficult in Padstow so it looks like a good opportunity to tie in a cycle along the Camel Trail at the same time and tick two things off my Bucket List.
Enys Gardens – 30th April – 7th May
Enys Gardens will be hosting their Bluebell festival at the beginning of the month. Despite being on my door step I have never visited the gardens, but I am determined to get there this year to enjoy their spring event.
Helston Flora Day – 7th May
Helston Flora Day is usually held on May 8th, unless that date falls on a Sunday or Monday, in which case the previous Saturday is take so this year the event will take place on a Saturday so I defiantly want to make the visit (although if it rains I might wait till next year when it also falls on a Saturday)
Trebah Mousehole Cat – 27th – 28th May
We have been regular visitors to Trebah over the years and this time of year the gardens really start to spring into life. However I have never been to a performance in the amphitheatre. This half term Trebah host the tale of the Mousehole Cat, the book is a family favourite so an evening out looks on the cards.
