With Cornwall becoming an ever more popular holiday destination, it’s starting to build a new catalogue of music festivals. Last weekend, URB visited the first ‘Live at Scorrier House’ event, a brand new one-day celebration of music.
I’m not sure about you, but when someone describes an event to be ‘family friendly’, my mind normally wanders to bouncy castles, fairground rides and ice cream trucks. And although LASH had all that to offer, it also had so much more – a secret woodland afterparty, fireworks, delicious street food, plenty of bars and big names.
With just one stage, and an intimate layout, I would describe LASH as a relaxed event which got all ages dancing. Whether that meant you were heading for the laser tag or joining the mammoth queue for a pint of Cornish Rattler. Out of all the family-friendly events I’ve visited so far, I would say this is one of my favourites; there was a perfect balance of attention towards each age group.
Although I expect that the names Groove Armada and Morcheeba were what brought most people to the festival, support from Dr Meaker, Tuba Libres, Grace Savage and Max Rad built a sea of energy before the sun set. Not often is it that you find support acts as talented and suited to the audience as they were here. I was impressed with the technical professionalism, both sound and lighting were to a remarkably high standard.
Live at Scorrier house was a festival with the promise of great music, smiles from the whole family and picturesque backdrops. I would say this was a very successful first year for LASH, this event has us excited for their future plans.
