Mount Pleasant Eco Park is a fully independent community venue that needs your help to survive their current closure.

Who are we?

Mount Pleasant Eco Park is a flexible, imaginative community resource hosting everything from live music gigs and international music festivals to roots culture markets and sustainable workshops. As well as the venue space we welcome the local community to share in our wonderful green spaces across our 42-acre site, from solo exploring to joining us for weekly volunteer Friday sessions or community tree planting days. Over the past 6 years we’ve planted over 4000 trees!

In a breath-taking location on the North Cornwall coast, this once derelict land has been lovingly brought back to life with the development of plenty of rich habitat for local wildlife, from wildflower fields to a community garden and organic allotments. The venue itself was built with environmentally friendly methods and processes and the planet has been considered every step of the way since, from the wind turbine that powers 50% of the electricity to the biomass boiler that runs on waste wood.

'By far one of my favourite places to visit locally. Such a wonderful vibe and ethos, we love to just go and chill. I think this place offers so much to our community. Very special x' - Rebecca, 2019

Current Situation

The Eco Park is a labour of love born out of the desire to make a positive impact on the local area and community and the world we live in. A passion for live music and a need for connection in these disconnected times has evolved into a thriving hub of creativity and kindness. Like all small businesses the current lockdown has created many issues for us. We have had to postpone all gigs, cancel events, close our campsite and refund countless bookings where rearranging just wasn’t possible. Whilst our income has completely stopped, our outgoings have not and we still have insurance, maintenance costs, supplier bills, etc to pay. 

How can you help?

We wish to continue to provide an inspiring community space where people can meet, enjoy music, dance, connect, plant, share ideas and good times once it is safe to do so, but we need your help to make that happen. You can donate any amount you choose, or you can pledge for one of our rewards - we need you to think to the future with us!

We really love being a part of this vibrant community and cannot thank you enough for all your support.
