New stretch target

Extra funding or support from the Calor Gas grant will allow us to purchase additional and higher quality equipment to serve our local communities in North Cornwall. 

It will allow us to provide extra support to projects run by our local communities and support local artists and initiatives.

Extra equipment we would put the funding towards would be: 

A hearing loop system - allowing D/deaf community members to benefit from our venue

Dance Matting & equipment - to allow local community groups to run dance sessions and for Endelienta to programme professional dance workshops for local young people and the community

Blackout Curtains - Allowing local groups to utilise the space more for performance arts including: theatre, dance, film, talks and workshops

19th place in the Calor Rural Community Fund - £5,000 Category

After ten years of existence, Endelienta and the North Cornwall Book Festival are in desperate need of new staging, lighting & sound systems to allow us to continue providing high quality events for our local communities and communities across North Cornwall.

Our refurbished hall has enormous potential, but lacks the appropriate set up for family shows, dance, drama, author talks and interviews, film, workshops for adults, families and schools. Staging, lighting & sound equipment will make this possible, transform our hall into a brilliant venue for local people to experience arts of all kinds close-up. More than that, the new equipment will enable mobile use and allow us to further support shows/projects in village halls and community events nearby. It would help us make a bigger cultural splash in North Cornwall and bring the arts to life for young and old, for many years to come.


How do we do this? 

How do we go about getting this new equipment? That’s where you come in. We are in the running for the Calor Gas Community Fund where, if successful, we could receive £5000 towards our goal! To do this though we need to reach the finals of their competition based on points from this Crowdfunder. To have the best chance possible of receiving this funding we need your support! For every page share we receive ONE POINT and for every donation a huge TEN POINTS. On 16th July, the projects with the most points will be judged by Calor’s panel to see who receives a share of the £85,000 prize fund.

There are two ways to help: 

1.    Please share the project far and wide using your social media’s. Make sure you use the buttons at the top of this page or else it won’t count.

2.    If you can, please donate to the project, even a small donation will help us in a big way. There are a range of wonderful rewards available (our way of saying thank you), which can be claimed on the right.  

Every share and donation helps us get one step closer to some much needed equipment! 


Who are we?

Since 2010 Endelienta and the North Cornwall Book Festival have strived to provide high quality, engaging arts events for the people of North Cornwall. Every year over five thousand people participate in our events, where we work with communities across North Cornwall. We run schools events, dementia café’s, professional concerts with musicians from across the globe, literary events, poetry clubs and a host of other activities. This includes the ever growing North Cornwall Book Festival, where last year authors including Michael Morpurgo and Tracey Thorn treated over two and half thousand attendees to readings, discussions and workshops. 

We are hugely thankful to the communities in the St Endellion area for their ongoing and support and are a primarily run by the dedication of a huge group of volunteers from these communities, who work tirelessly throughout the year to keep high quality arts events running in the area.

Thank you/Meur Ras for your support!
