A unit at the new St Austell Business Park was transformed into a workshop to turn bicycles into horse-powered transport at the weekend.

The £6.2m development at Carclaze was the starting point for The Adventures of Don Quixote by Bicycle, which was organised by the Eden Project and the Clay Trails project and performed by Burn the Curtain theatre company.

Audience members arrived on two wheels and set about getting creative to turn their bikes into trusty steeds.

The actors and audience then cycled from the St Austell Business Park to the Eden Project with the story unfolding along the way.

St Austell Printing Company’s managing director, Peter Moody, who built the St Austell Business Park said: “We were really pleased to be able to support this fantastic creative idea.

“The clay trails are an important part of the history of St Austell and as a business that has been in the town for 30 years I think it is important that we celebrate this area.”

Nathan Hunkin, Clay Trails Project Co-ordinator at the Eden Project, said: “We had a great time over the weekend with two fantastic performances of The Adventures of Don Quixote by Bicycle. The clay trails route, starting at St Austell Business Park, provided a magnificent backdrop to the show.”

The next performances of the play take place on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25.
