Covid-19 Update

POSTPONED

UNTIL 2021

We're very sad to announce that due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Hellys will be postponed until summer 2021. Please stay safe, and we hope to see you all soon!

Hellys International Guitar Festival takes place annually in Helston, Cornwall. We set up the project in winter 2016, with the idea of producing a local festival that would attract global talent to Cornwall and give opportunities to local artists, whilst also promoting other arts forms and workshops, giving a family-friendly feel to the event.

Our first three seasons were at The Old Cattle Market, and we loved our time there. We will always be grateful for the support they gave us in helping to set up this project.

For our fourth season we have moved a couple of miles up the road to Crasken Farm, which offers us the opportunity to expand Hellys quite dramatically. We want to give the festival a whole new lease of life with three days of mind-blowing activities for families to enjoy, whilst still featuring top international concert artists, this year from no fewer than nine countries! We're expanding the range of musical styles, the number and kinds of workshops, and there will be stalls, food on site, three bars and activities to keep people happy all day long. We hope that locals and tourists alike will love what we have in mind for 2021!
