Village Tradition Revived - Feast Concert

The Feast Concert, held on Friday 6th March in the Church revived an old village tradition celebrating St Piran's Feast which hadn't occurred since the 1950s!

Local talent was gathered together under one roof for a splendid evening's entertainment. Local band, The Perranaz started the show and a variety of items followed, including songs from Gilbert and Sullivan, delightful poems, violin solos, and a hip hop street dance!
The climax of the evening was the song "You Are My Sunshine" sung and played by all the performers with the audience singing along!
Afterwards everyone enjoyed a delicious pasty supper.

Great fun was had by all!

This event has prompted Kevin to start thinking about this years Gwlascore lowen. He is looking to hear from anyone who might be interested in helping organise the event or for any ideas about the format for this year. He is also looking for ideas for community projects that any money raised could go to.

He said;
"I am going to start with a complete blank canvas. The only stipulation is that preferably anyone involved should live, or work, or have some connection with the Parish of Perranuthnoe."

Kevin can be contacted initially by email or, if people want too, just pop into the shop, Village Crafts.

Gwlascore lowen, meaning Happy Community, was a fantastic success last year. Click here to read the report
