August 2018’s Ambassadors of the Month: Jonathan Bray and Guy Watson

To welcome in August, we’ve got not one, but two fantastic Ambassadors of the Month – Jonathan Bray and Guy Watson, who work together developing, marketing and promoting events across Trebah Garden, Trebah Amphitheatre and Cousin Jack’s Theatre Company. With the summer season is full swing, we were delighted to nab five minutes of their time to hear about their future projects, favourite venues and where they head to for a post-work pint in the glorious Cornish sunshine.

  1. Name / name of business / whereabouts in Cornwall are you based?

Jonathan Bray and Guy Watson, Trebah Garden, Trebah Amphitheatre and Cousin Jack’s Theatre Company!

  1. What has been your most useful Cornwall 365 experience or tool?

We love using and being in the Cornwall 365 What’s On guide, we are also always very impressed by Charlie’s shoes!

  1. Best experience you’ve experienced (in Cornwall)

Standing on cliff-tops with no sign of human intervention in view.

  1. The family taken care of. The business is taken care of. What is your perfect day & evening in Cornwall?

We are lucky enough to be able to walk through Trebah after hours, hop on to the coast path and share an after work pint at The Ferryboat Inn.

  1. You have free tickets to the performance of your choice. Who would you take with you (living or dead)?

Definitely Dame Judy Dench to Tropical Pressure….POW!

  1. Most unusual performance space you have been to?

Guy is desperate to find the right performance for the James Turrell’s skyspace at Tremenheere Garden, watch this space.

  1. Best live music venue in Cornwall

Obviously Trebah Amphitheatre but given a night off we wouldn’t say no to some tickets to the Eden Sessions.


  1. Your favourite walk?

Anywhere on the SW Coast Path, blue sky, salty air, green cliff-tops…perfect.

  1. Best place in Cornwall to get food?

A Nancarrow feast night, we have exciting plans to work with these guys and their amazing chefs in the future.

  1. Name one, really different excursion

This summer’s performance of The Trench at Bodmin and Wenford Railway.

  1. What’s your 2nd best kept secret about Cornwall?

Sometimes it rains at the Minack, but the show always goes on.

Nowhere…this is home.
