The Church and gardens will host a magnificent Light Show on 28 th 29 th and 30 th December.

lighting will take maximum advantage of the stunning reflections across the water. As well
as the ever-popular community carols, mulled wine and mince pies, there will also be
themed photo booths for children to dress up and pose to take their own photos.
The Festival of Light will run on three nights this year – 28 th 29 th and 30 th December from
5:00pm to 7:30pm on all evenings, (last admissions 7:00pm). Entry is FREE with donations
much appreciated. All donations and proceeds will go towards our plan to upgrade the
paths and lighting and restock some of the plants in the beautiful St Just in Roseland Church
gardens – a very special place enjoyed by the Roseland community and visitors from far and
Parking in the church car parks will be limited to Blue Badge holders but there will be ample
organised parking in nearby fields with a drop off and shuttle buses. Go Cornwall will provide additional shuttle buses between St Mawes and St Just in Roseland
