Cornwall Air Ambulance – Blue light festival ‘Helifest’ comes to new venue for 2024

Get ready for a revamped Helifest, the big one-day blue light festival brought to you by Cornwall Air Ambulance.

The fun-filled family day is taking place on Saturday 6th July 2024 at a new venue, Scorrier House near Redruth, and will again celebrate the hard work of Cornwall’s emergency services.

Helifest 3D Text and the Cornwall Helicopter

Come along and meet some of your Cornwall Air Ambulance crew and see the helicopter, with teams from Cornwall Blood Bikes, the British Army, Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service, HM Coastguard, NHS, Devon & Cornwall Police, RNLI and West Cornwall Search & Rescue also in attendance.

There will also be entertainment for all the family with live music from local bands, exciting food traders including Paul Ainsworth’s food truck, inflatables, children’s theme park rides, a circus skills workshop for the little ones, and even the chance for a helicopter ride with Adventure 001.

All the money raised from Helifest will go towards keeping your helicopter flying and helping the charity to save lives across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Rob Foster, Fundraising Officer for Events and Challenges, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing Helifest to a new area of Cornwall, in the stunning setting of Scorrier House. We are back bigger and better and we’re ready for a day of great entertainment. There is a fab line-up of local musicians who will be performing, some excellent food and drink stands to tuck into and of course lots of fun for all the family.

“Helifest not only raises awareness of our lifesaving work here at Cornwall Air Ambulance, and of the other emergency services, but it also helps to raise the vital funds needed to keep your helicopter flying. We hope you’ll come and join us during our #Heli2 appeal year, your support will help us secure a second helicopter.”

Helifest is kindly supported and sponsored by Absolute Canvas and The Duchy Group.
