INFORMATION FOR DELEGATES
Dear Jung by the Sea Delegate
Now you have booked your conference place, this page is designed to draw together information and updates to help you get the most out of your participation. Have a browse - or use the links below:
All delegates are invited to participate in the creation of a ceremonial beach art event called ‘Re-claiming the Myth of Medusa’.
This will involve decorating 120 individually crafted sea-biodegradable snakes (made ahead of the conference by Sarah Hall, from seaweed and rice paper, available for you to embellish), and adding them to a giant head and shoulders sand sculpture on the beach. We will ceremonially watch as the tide comes in to reclaim this collective art work, absorbing and taking your messages into the ocean.
For anyone unable to access the steep steps to the beach, this spectacle will be filmed and added to the Jung by the Sea website after the conference.
Delegates are coming from near and far and we really look forward to welcoming you to this first Jung by the Sea event and sharing this anniversary weekend with you.
The finalised conference Programme Guide can be downloaded through the above links.
The guide remains subject to change insofar as some events have to take account of the weather, which can't be predicted too far ahead, but we hope in the main to stick closely to this timetable.
In addition to the digital version, there will be printouts available at the event, as well as a board outlining events and timings, and regular announcements as the weekend gets underway -so you don't miss anything.
A specialist bookshop by Psychological Therapy Books will be available at the event. Run by independent bookseller Bookmark, they specialise in publications for counsellors, psychotherapists, and psychologists.
Titles recommended by the conference speakers, and linking to conference themes, will be available at specially reduced prices. Some of their publications can be seen below and a wider selection via their website.
There will be a facility to purchase books by debit/credit card but cash will also be accepted.
FOOD & DRINK
We have secured incredible festival caterers Big Pan Parties for the event, who will serve a range of dishes for each service.
They will include vegan and gluten free options, so there is no need to communicate your dietary requirements in advance.
As Polhawn Fort is located in a very rural part of Cornwall, you will need to organise travel to and from the venue in advance. There is evening entertainment on both the Friday and Saturday nights which end at 9.45pm and delegates are asked to leave the venue by 10pm. No taxis will be available to call on the day - Cornwall doesn’t work like this!
We have therefore contacted a number of local taxi firms who have agreed to put on extra shifts over the conference period. These are outlined below according to their area of operation. Please book any transport you may require directly with the taxi company. Availability cannot be guaranteed, and we encourage you to book as soon as possible.

(They hire in other cars from smaller taxi companies; have multiple seat vehicles)
Jim's Taxis: 01752 812 112

Please note that all travel costs are payable by delegates (at the point of use) and are not included in the conference ticket.
By train, the nearest station is St Germans (a branch line between Plymouth and Liskeard mainline stations) requiring a 10 minute taxi transfer to the fort.
From Plymouth station (an average of 3 hours 45 mins by direct train from London Paddington) it is possible to travel by ferry or road to Polhawn fort.
The Torpoint ferry operates three chain ferries providing a service 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year and offer a 10 minute frequency at peak times. From Torpoint a taxi is required to reach the Fort (10 minutes).
By road from Plymouth train station the journey is approx 50 minutes and from Liskeard train station approx 20 minutes. There is a bus from Plymouth to Rame Head too taking around 40 minutes (via the ferry).
Private off road parking at the fort is provided for up to 50 cars.
The Polhawn Fort team has put together a useful ‘Travel Pack’ for guests, which can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.
Bill Bartlett will be joining us to offer Sand Mandala workshop sessions, talks and maybe some walking over the weekend - on an ad hoc basis. You can find out more about his distinctive work via his website.
If you are coming to Cornwall for an extended visit, you may wish to contact him in advance for guided walks, to hear more about Jung’s connections with North Cornwall or beach art.
We are unable to provide accommodation for conference delegates at Polhawn Fort.
We hope that you have secured accommodation. Should you still need to make arrangements, information can be found at Visit Rame. There is a wide variety of options locally to suit a range of tastes and budgets, including self-catering cottages, Airbnb, Boutique B&Bs, local village pubs with rooms and camp sites.
Visit Cornwall also provides a wide range of information for those travelling to and around Cornwall.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The conference falls at the beginning of the Spring Half Term school holiday in 2023, and accommodation is likely to be booked up to a year ahead. It is strongly recommended that you book accommodation as soon as you book your conference ticket to be sure of availability.
