Cornwall is known for its stunning natural landscapes, but did you know that Cornwall also has a massive music scene? Cornwall has always been a big place for music and some of the earliest discovered ‘dance music’ manuscripts were believed to be from around 1750 – 1850. It is believed that this music spanned the classes and was generally enjoyed by all.

Enough about Cornish music history! It may come as no surprise to hear that the Eden Sessions is hosted at the famous Eden Project in Cornwall. The Eden Project is a must-see location with its amazing past going from a dull clay mine to a place where you can reconnect and rediscover the natural world. The project is a driving force for positive change with its offsite power supply that uses 100% renewable energy, no single-use plastics anywhere onsite and 85% of all onsite food is locally sourced helping put money back into the community and local farmers. Each ticket to the Eden Sessions also gets you free entry into the Eden Project so it's well worth arriving early and taking in this truly stunning Project.

So, let’s look at the Eden Sessions. The Eden Sessions started in 2002, only a year after The Eden Project opened its doors with the famous band Pulp taking to the stage. Since Pulp, many of your favourite bands have also taken to the stage from Age and Björk to Elton John.

This year is set to be an amazing year for this little festival with the likes of Crowded House, Fatboy Slim, Paolo Nutini, Suede and Manic Street Preachers, The National plus This Is The Kit, Rick Astley plus the Lightning Seeds, Tom Grennan and JLS. This is a lineup that caters to just about everyone young and old.

If you love Cornwall and music, then why not think about staying nearby at parks like Polruan Holiday Centre or Eden Valley Holiday Park links to parks and Eden sessions can be found below.

The April Show is an event held by Surf Bay Leisure between the 10th and 12th of April. This event is the caravan and lodge show, we host this event to allow people that are due an upgrade or wish to make their first purchase have a look around and ask questions in a stress-free environment.
Individuals are given the opportunity to not only look and ask about caravans but also speak to park owners. This allows buyers to make an informed choice around the lifestyle they will lead for the next 10 -15 years. 
Decking for your static caravan can be made from a few different materials but no matter the material they are all made to a high standard. The standards for decking especially around statics need to be high as these homes away from home can take a serious beating by the weather, especially on the southwestern coast.
Here at Surf Bay Leisure, we are excited to be hosting another April show and it is right around the corner! Head down with the family to see the latest and greatest from our three manufacturers (ABI, Swift and Atlas) and maybe find your new holiday home.
What is the lifespan of a Static Caravan?

The lifespan of a Static Caravan can vary, however, like with most things if it is looked after and properly maintained then you could expect the static caravan to reach up to 30 or more years on private land. Parks will generally ask for it to be upgraded around the 15-year mark to keep the park looking appealing and safe.
Location:
What is the ideal location? This varies from person to person, but it is important to consider what makes a holiday special to you, is it being near stunning coastlines like you might find in Tintagel or would you prefer to be surrounded by the countryside like you might find near Winkleigh. Luckily if you enjoy both these things then the Southwest has it covered. The sea and countryside are never more than a 30-minute drive away from each other.

If you enjoy the wonders of the natural world then this is the blog for you! Lets explore the weird and wonderful things that you could encounter beneath the picturesque waves this summer.
Winter storms have been relentless across Devon and Cornwall over the last few months, and this was followed by a vicious tide that has now exposed a slice of history previously hidden beneath the waves. The wreck of the three ships is a stern reminder of the perils that sailors of the past had to undertake. The ships in question all sank around 130 years ago and their stories are etched into the sands of Carbis Bay.
