Port Eliot Festival Jul 2018

Brett Anderson
Venue: The Bowling Green.
Brett Anderson came from a world impossibly distant from rock star success, and in his memoir Coal Black Mornings he traces the journey that took him from a childhood as ‘a snotty, sniffy, slightly maudlin sort of boy raised on Salad Cream and milky tea and cheap meat’ to becoming founder and lead singer of Suede. Anderson grew up in Hayward’s Heath on the grubby fringes of the Home Counties. As a teenager he clashed with his eccentric taxi-driving father (who would parade around their council house dressed as Lawrence of Arabia, air-conducting his favourite composers) and adored his beautiful, artistic mother. In Coal Black Mornings he brilliantly evokes the seventies, the suffocating discomfort of a very English kind of poverty and the burning need for escape that it breeds. It is a profoundly moving, funny and intense book which stands alongside the most emotionally truthful of personal stories.

Desperate Housewives star, Suede singer Brett Anderson and lots more announced for Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall
Port Eliot has announced the first array of artists that will bring the Cornish festival to life this summer.
Running from July 26 to 29, the festival takes residence on the park and woodlands of the ancient Port Eliot estate at St Germans on the Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall. It also finds its way into the indescribable historic house (the oldest continually inhabited dwelling in the country) and into the oldest church in Cornwall.
Among those performing, being interviewed and cooking up a storm are Suede frontman Brett Anderson, who publishes his memoir Coal Black Mornings in March, Superman, Desperate Housewives and James Bond actress and activist Teri Hatcher, singer-songwriter Billy Bragg, musicians Baxter Dury, Gwenno, Teleman and new gospel stars The Como Mamas.
Film director Garth Jennings of Sing fame, chef Zoe Adjonyoh, commentator Reni Eddo-Lodge, Mersey Sound poet Brian Patten, current award-winning poet Hollie McNish, comedians Arthur Smith, Shappi Khorsandi and Kernow King are also joining in the fun.
