Rame Peninsula | June weather, Cornwall

June is one of our favourite months in Cornwall.

It’s not as busy as July and August, the days are long and warm, and there’s lots of festivals on, be it food, music, art or sailing (see below for just a few!).

So, if you are not governed by school holidays, then why not come down in June?

Plus, if you are looking for a great deal. We currently have 3 available weeks at Blue Monkey in June from 2nd through to 23rd. We have reduced our prices from £2199 to £1,249 and the weather is looking good!

The Plymouth route starts and finishes on the picturesque Hoe promenade, adjacent to Smeaton’s Tower, and provides fantastic views of the sea and a great atmosphere. The course is all on paved paths and follows closed roads around the Hoe and pathways in Hoe Gardens, so please do expect some hills.

Artists will be interested in this fascinating free exhibition

June to September: Collected Shadows and Plymouth Uni

amc7-1-500x700

This exhibition of 200 photographs is drawn from the extensive collection of the Archive of Modern Conflict (AMC). The AMC was first established 25 years ago as a repository for vernacular photography and ephemera relating to the First and Second World Wars. It has since grown to a total of eight million images encompassing a plethora of subject matter – not solely defined by war and conflict – collected from diverse sources all over the world.

Curated by AMC Director, Timothy Prus, Collected Shadows offers a glimpse into these extraordinary holdings. This eclectic display includes scientific, astronomical and botanical studies, studio sittings, portraits and private snapshots, press photographs, film stills and aerial photographs from several wars, as well as a rich and unpredictable array of works we would simply have to call art.

A Hayward Touring exhibition from Southbank Centre, London, organised in collaboration with the Archive of Modern Conflict, London.
