A new festival is being launched this weekend in one of Cornwall's most beautiful gardens.
Earl of St Germans: Breakfast bar for campers
The Port Eliot Literary Festival has been organised by the Earl of St Germans in the grounds of his south Cornwall estate.
It is designed to be a more sedate replacement for the Elephant Fayre - a mini Glastonbury.
The Elephant Fayre became known for drug taking in the 1980s and was stopped.
Camping is still encouraged, although there will be a showers and a breakfast bar for those less inclined to the simple pleasures of outdoor living.
The earl said: "The festival is aimed at people who like the crack of a festival.
"But it will also be extremely stimulating mentally and intellectually, and also very nice to look at."
Authors including Christopher Logue, Elizabeth Cook and Derrek Hines are due to appear.
There will also be a showcase for new writers and, in an echo of past times, a low-key DJ set.
