Ravers, roustabouts, and other revellers enjoyed a rambunctious weekend in the Scorrier sunshine for the first ever Great Estate festival.

For a first time event, the organisers managed to pull in a few big name acts, with a bill ranging from singer-songwriters to Brit indie, via electro swing and good much more.

Your reviewer's personal highlights had to be the Correspondents, whose sharp sounds and even sharper stage moves had Madame Wong's House of Wrong jumping on Friday night. Echo and the Bunnymen delivered a slice of new wave cool to the main stage on Saturday night and Indian Man brought bhangra to Cornwall, before locals Hong Kong Ping Pong kept the crowds going to the small hours with an eclectic and electric set in The Portal.

Music aside, there was plenty for festivalgoers of all ages - from camel racing on Sunday morning or relaxing in the secret gin garden, to heating things up with burlesque performer Talulah Blue or dancing the night away in the woodland silent disco.

Wild and wacky costumes - some recently purchased from the vintage stalls - were set against the idyllic backdrop of Scorrier House and grounds.

The festival did appear to have a few logistical hitches, with lengthy slogs from the overflow car park and shuttle buses in short supply, long toilet queues and some hit and miss stewarding, but these should be ironed out before next year's festival, with early bird tickets on sale soon.

But any shortfalls were more than made up for by the chilled atmosphere and warming sun that shone for the best part of the weekend.

Festival organiser Ben Hall said: “It was an incredible feeling opening the gates to The Great Estate at weekend. It has been four years in the making but well worth the wait and Scorrier House proved to be the perfect location. When guests entered the grounds of the festival you could see their reaction, it was priceless. We can't wait to get planning next year's event and start conjuring up more magical happenings.”
