John Harris is one of Cornwall’s foremost literary figures. The 200th anniversary of the birth of this 19th century poet, miner and preacher is to be celebrated in a weekend-long festival, based at The Alverton Hotel in the picturesque city of Truro. Among the many events there will be trips arranged to visit ‘John Harris country’, including a chance to see his grave at Treslothan Churchyard, near Camborne, and Falmouth, the town where he spent his latter years. The festival, organised by the John Harris Society, will be based at The Alverton Hotel, a Grade II listed building, previously a convent, and sharing the same architect as Truro Cathedral. A perfect place to stay for an idyllic Cornish holiday.
