History shows that this site has inspired creativity. In this way we can celebrate our differences and educate about the importance of our Cornish Megaliths. We aim to engender pride and cultural entitlement, providing an accessible site for outdoor education and leisure. Explore writing, film, art, photography, botany and music with us.

Commemorating the raising of the Quoit and celebrating the local area in its many aspects:- archaeological, historical, geographical, cultural and literary.
The excavations at the quoit were often accompanied by poetry readings over lunch, some more serious than others!
Jade Berry joined the project as photographer-in-residence during Education week 2014 and for the Restoration day.
A special piece of music has been commissioned 'The Ballad of the Giant's Quoit', a commemorative piece in both the Cornish and English languages. Hilary Coleman of 'Dalla' and Frances Bennett are running composition workshops with the Red River Singers. The piece was performed at a ceremony celebrating the restoration of the quoit, along with a dance around and under the quoit.
