The festival includes displays from other Cornish organisations, which provide information about current activities in the world of Cornish culture. There is also a programme of Cornish entertainment and speeches from local leaders like town mayors and the Grand Bard of Gorsedh Kernow, another important Cornish culture organisation. There is a similar festival held by the Federation of Old Cornwall Societies in the summer, which also moves to a new location every year.
A different Cornish town every year
The Old Cornwall Societies are one of Cornish culture’s most important groups. Since they were first founded in the 1920s, they have had a vital role in preserving all things Cornish. The Old Cornwall Societies meet every winter in a Cornish town, with the place changing each year.
