Activities in West Cornwall during the Summer Holidays

August - Every Sunday

Inspired by the stories of the island and life on the Mount, both past and present, join a crafty hub of activity and make your own treasure to take home.

No story on the Mount is complete without a mention of our very own Cormoran the Giant. Model your own giant's head using clay and natural materials - will your giant have a moustache, large hairy ears, be friendly or fierce? We can’t wait to see!

Leave your footprint on the island. Royalty, giants, a saint, monks and pilgrims have all left their mark on the mount - now it's your turn. Take off your shoes and follow in their footsteps, leaving your mark behind too!

The St Aubyn family have lived on the island for hundreds of years, and when you visit the castle, you will see their decorative coat of arms. Take inspiration from their design to create your own - whether you use snakes and birds or lions and roses. 

Each activity is connected to the Mount stories that our band of storytellers perform every day during the school holidays. Listen to the storytellers and then join the Great Scott! team to create elements of the legendary tales, so you can take a bespoke handcrafted piece of the Mount home to treasure, and create your own story.
