Winner of the Voice UK 2019, Molly Hocking is a 21-year-old emerging artist on the UK music scene, having already secured a number one and a number six single on the official iTunes music chart.

Born in St Ives, Molly has sung and performed from an early age, performing at open mics, theatres and other local music venues around Cornwall.

Her style is unique and there is no mistaking her voice when her songs are played on the radio. Molly tells a story with her vocals and takes you right there.

Bluebell Festival and Art Exhibition

The mansion house will be open everyday for Enys Art Exhibition which will also extend into the gardens this year.

Hopefully, if the conditions are right we will also be celebrating the truly breathtaking English bluebells at Parc Lye. The bluebell meadow (Parc Lye) is believed to be undisturbed since ancient times. 

The blue carpet of these gorgeous flowers makes a sight difficult to describe; it simply has to be experienced.
