Around Cornwall in 38 Churns

Around Cornwall in 38 Churns

What is it?

‘Around Cornwall in 38 Churns’ is a remarkable and very unusual art project that has been devised by Sue Dennett of Newquay who wanted to showcase the county’s talented artists and stunning locations and raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care.  The project is being supported by Rodda’s Creamery, Visit Cornwall and David Lay Auctions and will culminate in a grand auction of the churns at Truro Cathedral.

Artists from across Cornwall have been given a churn, kindly donated by Rodda’s Creamery, and have offered their talent and time to decorate each one in their own particular style.  They include famous names such as Kurt Jackson, Michael Praed and Dick Twinney.

The Trail

Each will be featured at venues around Cornwall and through the summer and we encourage you to follow a trail via an interactive map to visit the churns.

“Ultimately each churn will be auctioned to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care, a local charity I feel passionately about,” says organiser Sue Dennett.  The Chair of the charity’s Newquay Fundraising Group, she’s supported Mount Edgcumbe Hospice and St Julia’s Hospice for the last 38 years. “The churns look amazing and will I’m sure, prove a big attraction at the many venues where they’ll be displayed through the summer months.  We’ll then complete the auction on Wednesday 21st September at Truro Cathedral and given the comments we’ve already received; I think the bidding is going to be feverish.”

Full details of all the artists and their Churns is available on a specially created website www.38churns.co.uk generously donated by GSL Media of Plymouth.   You can also visit the project Facebook page, and the Instagram page created by another generous sponsor Dianne Viljoen.

There is an interactive map and printed leaflets explaining which artists are kindly donating their time and when and where the complete churns will be displayed.  So look out for the trail and make sure you share this unique project with friends and family and stay tuned for all the latest updates and beautiful churn pictures.

And after the trail....

The finale event will be held at Truro Cathedral on Wednesday 21st September where the churns will all be at one central venue for all to see.  This will be followed in the evening of 21st September by the culmination of a final bidding auction for all churns.  David Lay Auctions have very kindly agreed to be the auctioneers for this, and all proceeds will go to Cornwall Hospice Care.

You can bid online at anytime from now.  Please got to the Around Cornwall in 38 Churns website to find out how to bid.

We give our thanks to the following organisations for their support and assistance in making this project come alive.

Boconnoc Open Garden

Boconnoc Open Garden

This year’s Boconnoc Open Garden is being ran by St Austell Soroptimists.

Boconnoc’s story begins thousands of years ago. Since the days of the Domesday Book, people have inhabited this beautiful tract of Cornwall—and the estate itself is alive with centuries of history. 

After 12 years of dedicated refurbishment, Boconnoc now represents the heights of Cornish luxury. With its Georgian architecture, picture-perfect countryside, and buzzing fairs, festivals, and busy wedding and events calendar, it captures all the enchantment and beauty of Cornwall. 

The Fortescue family has personally had ties to Boconnoc since 1717. In 2000, inspired by the founding of the Boconnoc Steam Fair, Anthony and Elizabeth Fortescue embarked on an ambitious renovation project to restore Boconnoc to its former glory, and impart a brilliant new contemporary feel to the estate. 

Take a trip to one of the most beautiful gardens of Cornwall. From the grazing fallow deer in the Deer Park to the centuries-old trees of the ancient woodland, exploring the grounds feels like stepping right into a timeless oil painting. 

Begin your tour at the Dorothy Garden, just a quick stroll from the house, where fountains burble and flowers turn their faces to the sun. Bring along a camera to capture the vibrancy of the shrubbery, which bursts into blossom, from 34 different varieties of hydrangeas to pink and purple rhododendrons and azaleas, and for a special escape, explore the palm-fringed paradise of the tropical fountain along the Stewardry Walk around a waterfall, pool, and Lady Hamilton’s marble bath, the exotic plants create an ambiance that’s akin to a tropical retreat. 

At Boconnoc, you’ll also find magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas, and a variety of exquisite plant species.
