A Roo’s Beach Summer Guide To Cornwall
Whether you’re heading down to Cornwall for your summer getaway or you’re a local in need of some inspiration of what to do, Cornwall has it going on! We’ve listed our top must-do’s below...
INSTEAD OF BOARDMASTERS - CANCELLED LAST MIN | 9th - 11th August
The weather lately in the UK has been giving us all whiplash, with Roo returning from a very sunny Glastonbury where the rain didn't make an appearance (yay!), so unfortunately neither did Roo’s favourite Insane in the Rain jacket, and our local Boardmaster's Festival being cancelled this weekend because of the forecasted storms (boo!) we are still set to welcome the hoards of people heading to the county. We're pleased to say that even though the main music festival is cancelled, the festival’s surfing roots are still alive, so you can still head to Fistral Beach in Newquay for surfing competitions, skate/bmx shows, free live music beach sessions and a fantastic surf shopping village.
Our shop will be open all weekend (as usual) with parking behind the store, so make sure you pop in for all your fashion fixes, essentials and refreshments. Check out our “What To Wear” summer wardrobe guide at the bottom of the blog for our newest flower-power, feel-good products.
LITTLE ORCHARD CIDER & MUSIC FESTIVAL | 13th - 15th September
September sees Healey’s Cyder Farm in Penhallow open its doors to the crowds for their annual Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival. A trip to Cornwall wouldn’t be the same without some cider thrown in for good measure right? Expect bands like Reef and The Zutons at this year’s event, alongside many other local artists and bands. There’s fun for all the family with camping, glamping, silent discos and much more!
OPEN AIR THEATRE & CINEMA | Throughout August
Throw in some family fun at one of Bedruthan Hotel’s outdoor theatre evenings, on ‘til 3rd August for some stunning award-winning shows with sea views. Just remember to wrap up warm when the sun goes down! One of our gorgeous British-made wool throws or blankets should do the trick. Fancy kicking back with a wine and watching a much-loved film whilst digging your toes into the sand? Then why not venture out to Porthminster Beach in St.Ives with your besties to watch an Open Air Cinema UK film, featuring fun titles such as Bohemian Rhapsody, The Greatest Showman or Moana. On right up until 1st Sept.
Looking for something a little different this Summer?
If music festivals and open air cinemas aren't your thing or you want to mix things up, most towns here in Cornwall celebrate summertime in one way or another, either with a foodie celebration, regatta, motor fest or a Cornish cultural event, so no matter when you’re in town, there’ll be something for all the family.
WHAT TO WEAR - A Roos Beach Feel Good Summer Guide
Introducing the brand new ‘Feeling Groovy’ Maxi Dress by Free People, styled here 3 ways to show off it’s versatility! In a beautiful coral pink floaty and dreamy material, wear on it’s own for true festival stand-out style, or pair down with a military jacket. We’ve chosen the Freepeople Spruce Military Shirt Jacket, featuring a rock and roll stylised American patchwork flag on the back. Another way to style this dress for everyday wear is throwing on your favourite sweater, beanie and trainers with it. This dress really does scream flower power, summery vibes. We are in love!
Also, do festival fun the right way with our conscious choices…
Paint those nails bold and bright with Sambora’s Beach Toes pink ‘Sunday Session’ shade (now back in stock after selling out super quick before). Vegan friendly, 10 toxic free and UV protected, these nail varnishes are hard wearing and perfect for the active woman!
Don’t forget to also check those lips with some seriously holographic INUWET gloss (Paraben free and 100% vegan!) to make you feel fabulous and care-free. Lastly, don one of our Insane in the Rain jackets over your fave Levis shorts and Birkenstocks. Composed from recycled PET plastic, each of these colourful rain-proof jackets contains between 17 to 23 up-cycled plastic bottles! Now that’s impressive!
