Gorsedh Kernow In St Ives

Gorsedh Kernow Procession Of Bards- St Ives
Gorsedh Kernow Procession Of Bards- St Ives

Not much news on the festival front lately - other than the Donovan gig selling out.

The Arts Programme should be published fairly soon - with details of events at St Ives Arts Club, St Ives Society of Artists, St Ives School Of Painting and other smaller venues. I'll feature that here when its out.

This is not strictly festival related - but one thing worth knowing is that Gorsedh Kernow, the full ceremonial Assembly of the Bards of Cornwall, will be coming to St Ives the week before the festival. The opening ceremony will take place on the Island on Saturday 4th September 2010 at 2.00 pm, with the sounding of the Horn of the Nation to the four points of the compass. There will also be a concert to celebrate Cornish culture at The Guildhall starting at 7.00pm.
