Create your own junk vehicles using recycled materials and work together to make a giant marble run.

Join the CAST-Off team to Make and Play in Coronation Gardens, near the Scout Hut in Helston.

Different activities are on offer at each CAST-Off session over the summer. Saturday sessions will be held at the Walled Garden, Penrose, from 29 July to 19 August, and Wednesday sessions will be held at Coronation Gardens in Helston from 2 to 16 August. The final session will take place on Wednesday 23 August at Gunwalloe Beach.

All activities are free. Just drop-in, no booking required. Donations welcome.

Participants of all ages are welcome. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

We won’t be put off by a bit of drizzle and hope you won’t either, but check on the day in case of extreme weather or last-minute changes.


The nearest car park is the large council-run one on Trengrouse Way, from which it is approximately a 600m / 0.4 miles walk.

CAST-Off is made possible by the generous support of the Garcia Family Foundation, Helston Town Council, Little Parc Owles Trust and Cornwall Council.
