Step into a wild and exciting story-world this summer, created by multi award winning Rogue Theatre at the enchanted heart of The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

When the Lost Gardens stirred from a lifelong sleep, the flowers woke first, and then the animals, and then the trees, and then the birds, and then, quite unexpectedly; another world woke as well!  Let your imagination run wild in the Lost Gardens and find yourself in the Land of Fae!

Best known for their immersive theatre adventures in Tehidy Woods, Rogue Theatre weaves magic at Heligan this summer, like a witch in the wood, or a mermaid of mud, like a strange and beautiful gift from the sea, or a biker princess on the road to destiny, like a selfie with the devil, or a chorus of angels dancing in blossom; The Lost Gardens Summer Ball is an exuberant, bewitching, and fun exploration into a world whose magic was lost in time, but not entirely forgotten!

The Lost Gardens Summer Ball is an immersive theatre adventure that weaves along the beautiful paths of Heligan and into the story world of The Land of Fae. And there, The Woodland King and The Moon await to share thrilling and fantastical tales that will come to life upon the stage. And at the end, we can dance together (if you want to, you are invited) it is a ball after all!

For families, adults and children of all ages who hear the call of the wild!

There will be enchanting live music, thrilling stories, otherworldly performance, explosive acrobatics, fire, wildly beautiful dance, free face painting and of course magic in the air.

Forest creature costumes, faerie dress, otherworld outfits, party frocks, wild life masks, funny hats, forest finery, frippery, feathers and fancy hairdos are encouraged though not essential. (Grown-ups as well as children)


A delicious street food inspired feast will be available in Heligan’s new outdoor eatery from 5 - 6.45pm, the perfect start to a spectacular night. Food includes slow cooked shredded beef tacos with baby gem lettuce and seasonal slaw, mixed vegetable haloumi flat bread with Heligan harissa sauce and Cornish Sausage baps for the kids! All priced at £5.50.

Cold beers, wines and other cool refreshments are also available to make sure you won't go thirsty on your adventure through The Lost Gardens.

Toilets are situated near the performance area as is a bar for light refreshments.

For your Lost Gardens adventure we recommend you bring shoes for adventure (wellies if it has been raining) and a torch.

There will be hay bales to sit on, though feel free to bring cushions (if you don’t mind carrying them).

The event lasts about 2 ½ hours and takes place in the gardens so come prepared whatever the weather.  (We will use our fabulous canopy to cover the audience if it should rain)!

The path twists and turns and is bumpy under foot but should be fine for a rugged buggy!


The adventure follows a reasonably flat and smooth trail and is accessible for wheelchair users.

The entire trail is roughly 700m and there are places to sit and rest along the way.

The main event is seated on hay bales though we have a number of chairs with arms and backs available too (just ask a Rogue member on arrival)

All are welcome, from near or far!
