Lusty Glaze Beach and Movinmusic Blues Agency would like to announce the arrival of a new blues n' roots event for Cornwall - "Blues on the Beach". This event will be held on Lusty Glaze Beach on the 1st May, tickets £10.
The name ‘Lusty Glaze’ is derived from the Cornish for ‘A place to view blue boats’. Lusty Glaze is privately owned and managed and is one of Newquay’s finest tourist beaches, and also offers an unsurpassed range of beach based activities with many of them being unique in the UK.

In recent years, the beach has undergone a total refurbishment and development programme and now boasts probably amongst the best facilities in the UK. Whether you are a day or resident visitor to the beach or activity centre you will enjoy facilities such as: 450 space Car Park, Mediterranean Style Restaurant, Beach Bar and Sun Terraces, Children’s Crèche, Shop, Hire Shop, fabulous Toilets, Café, Shower and Changing Rooms, Evening BBQ and Beach Huts.

The very first "Blues on the Beach" @ Lusty Glaze was a great success. Almost a thousand music lovers enjoyed the evening's entertainment provided by the Marcus Malone Band, the Hothouse Playboys and the Blackfoot Brothers. The night ended in high spirits with revellers dancing on the beach as Marcus Malone strutted up and down the stage front wielding his guitar.
Such a good night was had by all more events will be announced soon.
