The sixth annual Parklive Festival is coming to Falmouth’s Kimberley Park on Sunday April 29 for the first of six Sundays of free music.

Source FM’s Simon Neild, who co-founded the event in 2013 with Jules Kay, said: “For years I had my eyes on that park and thought it would be brilliant for music."

It wasn’t until he got together with head gardener Jules and sound engineer Carey Davis that the wheels were set in motion, and the group first organised the music for a Kimberley Park Association fundraising event.  

After the success of the fundraiser, they sat down to organise an annual event when Simon said: “If we’re going to do one, we might as well do six,” and thus Parklive was born. 

With two stages and artists from Cornwall and beyond, the free festival will be a fantastic excuse to get together on a lazy Sunday afternoon, and all of the staff at the event will be working for free.

On the Redwood stage: Biere De Luxe, Billie Alderman, Field, Liam Jordan, Lunacci, Tiger Tales, and 18 year old local singer/songwriter Bailey Tomkinson will be playing.

The festival will also feature chilled out sessions on the Low Key Marquee stage, with spoken word, acoustic performances, and the like from Mac Dunlop & MCMC, 7 Stars Writers Group, Val Baker, Oak & Fr4ctl, and The Jeanne Naylor Band.

Parklive returns to Kimberley Park on Sunday April 29 from 12 noon to 6pm.
