Port Eliot Festival Fashion Guide | Hg2 MUST-HAVE

Taking place on the stunning grounds of the Port Eliot House and Gardens in St Germans, Cornwall, the Port Eliot Festival is coming into its ninth year as one of the coolest literary and performances festivals in Britain. With its roots back into the 1980s, the festival (formerly known as the Port Eliot Lit Fest) has hosted countless acts and writers over the years, and how now got something of a reputation for its food offerings (read: greats like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Peter Gordon, Daniel de la Falaise and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen chefs have all cooked here).

Here at Hg2, the Port Eliot Festival is near and dear to our hearts, and for this year’s fest, we’ve teamed up with Sipsmith Independent Spirits to host the festival’s late-night party every night from 9pm – 3am. The party’s line up includes house & techno legends Brandon Block & Tim Lyall on Thursday and Saturday, DJ, producer and remixer Lazersonic on Friday and weekly ‘Pradise’ host Ali B on Sunday.

But…all this begs the eternal question…what to wear?! So we called on our friends at Style-Passport to give us some much-needed Port Eliot Festival fashion advice.
