Carnglaze Caverns welcomes a unique dance and music performance to The Rum Store.
For tens of thousands of years, people have ventured underground in order to experience something out of the ordinary: to take shelter, create, hide, escape, or do something they should not be doing. Join us as we gather for our own extraordinary expedition; a journey to find the most important thing.
Devised in collaboration with a steering group of archaeologists, geologists, historians, cavers and former miners, Beneath Our Feet is a promenade performance that will use dance and live music to tell the story of the underground. Your guide, musician Lou Vilstrup, will draw you into an unknown world, where the memories and secrets of each underground space will dance before you.
Beneath Our Feet is the most recent work by award-winning dance company Made By Katie Green, who specialise in making dance performance work for museums and heritage sites. With original music by Max Perryment and Lou Vilstrup (Dear Joy) and new writing by Anna Selby.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

As Carnglaze is a Tourist Attraction during the day we close the site to the public at 5pm (8pm August)
Your pre-ordered tickets will arrive by post and have a compliment slip with a map and site information.
If you need Low Mobility Parking please inform us at the time of booking as spaces are limited and must be pre-booked.
Please remember this IS a cavern and the temperature remains at 10 deg C all year round, so warm clothing and a cushion are recommended.
We are a rural site so strong shoes and a small torch are also recommended.
Carnglaze Caverns can best be found off the A38. From Liskeard, there are brown tourist signs directing to Carnglaze just before Trago Mills. From Bodmin the signs are just past Trago Mills.
From the A30, turn off at the sign for Colliford Lake and follow the signs to St Neot. Drive through the village and Carnglaze is about a mile south of the village, on the left.
