Welcome To The Thrown Gauntlet Mixed Arts Festival



... Back and bigger for its second year, The Thrown Gauntlet Festival of mixed arts is returning to Falmouth as residents open up their living rooms, bathrooms, gardens, streets and live venues, inviting the public to witness everything from Falmouth's brightest bands to Cornwall's most eccentric art.

From theatre and storytelling to photography and installation, from performance art to painting, and from film to sculpture, the festival will place actors in bathrooms, paintings in pubs and dance in living rooms.

When evening comes the festival will move to Jacobs Ladder Inn for three nights of music, performance and film.
