“Excellent Jazz and Blues Festival weekend.”

Calstock Arts Centre
Ranked #2 of 5 things to do in Calstock
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 October 2012

This is a good little local and area arts centre. This weekend there have been a series of excellent nationally regarded performers including Clare Teal on Saturday and the Clark Tracey Quintet on Sunday. First rate and a credit to those who organised and got the performers here. Anyone coming to the south east Cornwall area would do well to take a look at the website.

Went with friends last Sunday to watch a first rate band, Gigspanner, a trio lead by Peter Knight of Steel Eye Span. Very entertaining and almost as good as experiencing the building itself . A very creative and successful conversion of an early twentieth century Methodist chapel set on steep hillside on the northern side of the narrow Tamar valley close to the railway viaduct and on the road down to the centre of the village and the quay. Well proportioned simple and good acoustic. Best of all is the complete removal of the arched windowed wall that formerly stood behind the pulpit, which has been replaced with a spectacular wall of glass from the floor to the old arch point providing a breath taking view across the river and valley at the unspoilt farmland on the far side. A great backdrop for any event. The small upstairs gallery has been converted into a relaxed casual bar open one evening a week and at all events. We bought a couple of bottles of a good value Shiraz which we took with our glasses down stairs and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. An excellent venue and community facility. See the website for events and some pix. Pity the village seems to have no good places to eat. Decades ago we used to come out to the Boot which has long since closed and the other pub seems to offer only indifferent food. Eat before you go.
