The Rock Oyster Festival brings together the local community and music lovers from across the country to celebrate a weekend of musical talent and to support many local Cornish charities at the same time. It has been called ‘the most eccentric little festival around’ – a festival where for two glorious days and nights each summer festival goers can be part of the bohemian party scene of North Cornwall.
When Rock’s founder Mark Swindell set up Rock in 2011, he chose to name his company after the small Cornish village he holds so dear and where he spends much of his spare time.
This year Rock is thrilled to have supported the event by sponsoring the ‘Rock Road’ – a new temporary road that provided the thousands of festival goers with easy and safe access to and from the festival site.
Over the past 5 years the festival has raised over £10,000 for local charities and community initiatives. This year the festival is supporting the Mount Hawke Skate Park charity (1) and Cornwall Hospice Care(2).
