Paradhis Festival

Quick Panda Productions launches Paradhis Festival

Quick Panda Productions, the Cornish production company behind The Great Estate Festival, Little Orchard, and the Cathedral Masquerade, has launched Paradhis Festival.

Pronounced para-dees and named after the Cornish word for paradise, Paradhis Festival is a music and well-being festival that will take place Cornwall in 2024 with UK electronic group Morcheeba headlining.

The festival will take place at the historic Boconnoc Estate in South East Cornwall from July 5-7, 2024.

Ian Whittaker and Ben Hall, festival organisers, said: “We always felt that Cornwall has been missing an event that combines well-being and music as there is such a diverse range of incredible facilitators, well-being practitioners, nature enthusiasts and an amazing community in Cornwall that deserves its own gathering to celebrate and share this wealth of diversity. Boconnoc Estate is quite simply the perfect venue to launch this event at.

“We are thrilled to announce Morcheeba as the first headliners of Paradhis and we know they are going to put on a fantastic show.”

Clare Fortescue, director of Boconnoc Estate, said: “We’re thrilled that Quick Panda is launching Paradhis Festival at Boconnoc. Spending time at Boconnoc Estate allows guests and visitors to truly retreat in nature, and hit pause on daily life, so we couldn’t think of a better venue for a festival like Paradhis that combines wellness and music.

“We are looking forward to sharing Boconnoc Estate with the public for Paradhis Festival and working with Quick Panda who has a proven track record of creating successful festivals.”

Boconnoc is no stranger to hosting events, regularly hosting retreats for activities including yoga and art, plus being one of the locations of Paul Ainsworth’s Travelling Feast in 2021 featuring The Human League, Gabrielle, and Toploader, and hosting its own Boconnoc Steam Fair each year, however this is the first time it will be home to a weekend-long festival of this nature.
