By Car 

Redruth is located just off Cornwall’s main road – A30 and can be accessed from Avers Junction. It’s approximately 1hr30min from Plymouth, 3 hours from Bristol and 5 hours from London. There is a Facebook Group, The Pasty Connections, for sharing car travelling from and to outside of Cornwall – with regular lifts offered for Bristol and London.

You will find information on the Cornwall Council car parks including prices here. Both New Cut and Flowerpot Chapel are in the centre of the town, West End is less than 10 minutes’ walk away for a person of average level of fitness. There is also the privately run Fair Meadow Car Park which is very central to our events and venues.

Free parking is available but a little further away at Krowji, which is also one of our venues, about 15min walk into town.

By Plane

Cornwall Airport Newquay is the main airport in Cornwall, and is approximately 25miles from Redruth. The airport offers very limited public transport options, so we recommend arranging a lift, a taxi or car hire in advance.

Filming & Photography

Most of our exhibitions and events will be documented by film and photography. By participating, you consent to your likeness being used in any video, photography or audio materials produced for Flamm.

Photography and filming are permitted at all events unless clearly signposted otherwise. You can share photos and videos on social media using #FlammCornwall @FlammCornwall.

Getting Around

Flamm is taking place in many venues across the town of Redruth. You can find a map of all Flamm exhibitions and events in this brochure. All Flamm events are free, but some are ticketed due to venue capacity or access, so be sure to book your place so you don’t miss out!

Redruth is a small but hilly town. A leisurely walk between the two furthest venues should take no more than 30 minutes for a person of the average level of fitness. We endeavour to provide helpful guides and clear signage for everyone to navigate Flamm with ease.

Part of the festival happens outdoors at night. Please come prepared for all weather (weatherproof clothing, walking shoes/boots – this is Cornwall after all!) and take care as you navigate through the festival. Redruth is a close-knit and friendly town, with many residents living in the town centre, so please respect the residents by arriving and leaving our venues quietly, especially at night time. Please take any litter with you or dispose in bins around the town.

For food and drinks, you will find a list of recommended places from us and the artists.


With the exception of Core Art Rave, all of our commissioned projects are hosted in accessible venues. For the Core events, please expect uneven and potentially wet ground. Due to the variety of venues we use for the wider programme, not all venues are wheelchair accessible. Please see each event listing for more information. You are welcome to bring guide dogs, hearing dogs and other recognised assistance dogs into all of our venues.

If you have any enquiries regarding accessing the festival, please do get in touch with us at or message us on our social media channels.
