A new music and well-being festival is heading to Cornwall in 2024.

Quick Panda Productions, organisers of The Great Estate Festival and Little Orchard, have unveiled plans for the event named Paradhis Festival.

It is poised to transform the historic Boconnoc Estate into a centre for meditation, yoga and wellness activities, enhanced by a mix of musical performances.

UK electronic group Morcheeba will be headlining.

They have gained worldwide recognition since the mid-1990s and and have released ten studio albums.

To be held from Friday 5th until Sunday 7th July 2024, Paradhis promises events for visitors of all ages, backgrounds or beliefs, led by globally revered wellness advocate and Californian yoga teacher, Shiva Rea.

Among the range of activities are sound bath experiences, Wim Hoff workshops, storytelling, forest bathing and deer safaris in Boconnoc's deer park.

Festival organisers Ian Whittaker and Ben Hall said: "We always felt that Cornwall has been missing an event that is largely focused on well-being.

"There is such a diverse range of incredible facilitators, well-being practitioners, nature enthusiasts and an amazing community in Cornwall that deserves its own gathering to celebrate and share this wealth of diversity.

"Boconnoc Estate is quite simply the perfect venue to launch this event."

There will be music performances from artists such as Scott Matthews, Hang Massive, Facesoul, and Indian Man.

Clare Fortescue of Boconnoc Estate said: "We’re thrilled that Quick Panda is launching Paradhis Festival at Boconnoc.

"Spending time at Boconnoc Estate allows guests and visitors to truly retreat in nature, and hit pause on daily life, so we couldn’t think of a better venue for a festival like Paradhis that combines wellness and music."

The state is a sprawling country estate teeming with centuries of history, including a stately home, woodland, parkland, an 800-year-old church and a deer park.

The venue, which has hosted yoga and art retreats in the past, will welcome the public for the first time as the home of a weekend-long festival.

Super early bird weekend tickets start from £95 and are now on sale.
