The Passmore Edwards Bicentenary Festival 2023 (Passmore Edwards 200).

Passmore Edwards 200

The Passmore Edwards 200 Festival is a series of coordinated events to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of John Passmore Edwards, the Victorian Cornish philanthropist, on 24 March 2023.

Events will take place during 2023 throughout Cornwall, in London and across the south and south east of England, wherever a building funded by Passmore Edwards was built.
The Passmore Edwards 200 Festival has the potential to provide an exciting and wide- ranging programme of coordinated arts projects, exhibitions, learning programmes, walks and trails, media programmes and talks and debates to commemorate his life and lasting legacy. Participants will arrange for events in all of the areas where Edwards made his bequests, collaborating with others where possible, and together form a national Festival. The individual events will be specially created for the bicentenary or may be part of an organisations regular calendar of events, tailored to the bicentenary theme.
