What could be more idyllic than watching the Summer Solstice sunset from Drake’s Island?

Settle down and enjoy the kaleidoscopic glow and warm radiance that engulfs the sky as the sun slowly softens and sets over the Tamar and East Cornwall.

We’re delighted to offer you the opportunity to join us for this unique sunset experience on Thursday 20th June 2024. Why not bring a blanket and a picnic to sit and watch the symphony of hues painting the evening sky?

The ferry to the island will leave the Plymouth Barbican at 6pm and then you will join us on the island shortly after for your 4-hour experience.

While you are treated to the stunning final views of the longest day of the year, the evening entertainment will provide a feast for your other senses! Rising star Joanna Cooke, with her self-penned, soul-filled jazz songs, is bringing the blues while Mad Rush (and friends) will light the fires with rousing sea shanty’s fit for any island evening!

All the musical entertainment is included in the amazing ticket price and at £29.99 per person you will not get better value or a more unique event! Also included is your transport for the evening (private boat journeys), a glass of wine or soft drink on arrival, an optional guided tour of the island with our knowledgeable tour guides, and hot beverages during your picnic! The awe and wonder of such a superb event are free of charge and not to be missed!

Come and be a part of something magical by attending the first ever musical experience hosted on the island!
