This dawn till dusk, continuous theatrical event was a unique collaboration between Wildworks and The Lost Gardens of Heligan in 2014. Community performers young and old, banner and bunting makers, brass players, singers, stewards, gardeners and motorbike enthusiasts joined Wildworks theatre makers and the Heligan team. We exchanged knowledge, skills, memories and a shared vision to create a truly spectacular day of remembrance on the 3rd of August 2014 supported by a 6000 strong audience. Together, we relived and retold the lives of brave Cornish men from the parishes of Mevagiseey, Gorran and St Ewe who went to war, and the families they left behind.
