St Piran’s Day Cornish Folk Festival

Head to The Great Hall dreckly, for a night of quintessentially Cornish entertainment at our inaugural St Piran’s Day Cornish Folk Concert.

Celebrate St Piran’s Day in the Cornish capital, surrounded by local talents, ‘ansome ales and much-loved delicacies including piping hot pasties and hearty saffron buns. Experience the mind-blowing acoustics in The Great Hall and take part in the Trelawny Shout at 9pm (the mass rendition of our Cornish anthem.) Get your tickets here.

On Thursday 5th March, Cornish folk singer-songwriter and member of the popular group The Oggymen, Will Keating will be gathering some extra-special guests, including internationally renowned Cornish duo Davey & Dyer, and world-renowned Banjo player John Dowling, for an inspiring and uplifting ensemble of talented musicians all joining together to embrace the Kernow spirit.

We’ll also be taking part in the Trelawny Shout, an annual tradition where the county unite in harmony to recite the Cornish national anthem. Started by our chosen charity of the year, Cornwall Community Foundation, this year the voice count is expected to exceed 20,000 at 9pm on St Piran’s Day. Surround yourself with musical excellence, sing-song, dancing and lots of local history in The Great Hall.

For £15, your ticket will include entry to the concert, a free pint on arrival from official sponsors Sharp’s Brewery and a tasty pasty to munch on during the interval. Click here to get your tickets.

The Cornish Folk Festival marks the launch of The Alverton’s brand new programme of events in The Great Hall for 2020. More coming soon.
