Cult Experience 5 & 6, Worm-Charming & Port Eliot

Cult Experience 5
Name: The International Festival of Astro-Wormery
Place: Blackawton, Devon
Plot: It is to worms what charming is to snakes. The one who extracts the most worms out of one square metre of Devon turf wins. Methods include beer, gravy, Red Bull and fake rain.

Cult Experience 6
Name: Port Eliot Festival
Place: St Germans, Cornwall
Plot: Once called The Elephant Fair, the dreamy Port Eliot manor opens its doors to the best family festival this side of Wonkaville.
Gavin Turk’s House of Fairy Tales is a lawless treat and Caught By The River is also worth a nose.
