A site-specific celebration of creativity, community and heritage,

to accompany the restoration of St Day's Old Church. 


This exciting programme of creative activities and events kicks off with three-nights of celebrations:

DiaspAURA - the name comes from 'diaspora', meaning "the movement, migration, or scattering of a people away from an established or ancestral homeland".

The project celebrates the Old Church's connection with the world-wide Cornish diaspora, and we'll be creating an 'aura' through the dazzing light festival!
