About Us

Endelienta Arts is based in St Endellion on the wild North Cornish coast. We are dedicated to bringing high quality arts to North Cornwall alongside providing important access to the arts for young people in our region.

Our work

Endelienta Arts showcase and supports talent at all stages from across the county as well as bringing some of the finest musicians in the UK and beyond to our venues.

Our work consists of three main strands, Take Part, Music, and Literature. Alongside these we run our Cornish Language residencies, community clubs, family theatre, reflective days and more. To see what we’ve got coming up,  go to our what’s on page and get involved.

Take Part

Each year Endelienta Arts work with over 1200 young people in North Cornwall. From transforming Camelford’s Skate Park to creating new baroque songs we offer an exciting range of programmes both in and out of schools for ages 5 to 25 as part of our Take Part programme.

Our year-round programme welcomes musicians from across the country to North Cornwall. From wonderful Cornish talent to international stars, our audiences can explore the best in classical and folk music available today as well as range of other genres. Recent highlights have included the Mercury Prize shortlisted artist Gwenno, cello master Sheku Kanneh-Mason and folk supergroup Gigspanner Big Band.


Poetry and Literature are thriving in North Cornwall, and, under the artistic leadership of novelist Patrick Gale, we are proud to produce the North Cornwall Book Festival. Taking place each September, a part of the festival is devoted to younger readers from schools across the county.
