Now in its third year, Art8 is Newquay's Arts and Culture Festival - four days bursting at the seams with events, exhibits and workshops involving film, craft, spoken word, dance, photography, theatre, music, literature and more.
It's a community festival with something for everyone - young and old, residents and visitors alike - with all activities free or low-cost. Supported by local organisations and businesses, the event is a celebration of existing activity in the town as well as an opportunity to welcome artists and performers from further afield.
Kneehigh performers and collaborators feature heavily, with Squashbox, o-region, Rabbit Theatre and RoughCut all part of the festival.
Central to the ethos of the event is a contribution to increasing Newquay's positive profile. It's also about developing the offering for those who are here. There's plenty to see and do during the festival - so get involved!
