Festival Information

Lowender Peran 2013 Overview

Cornwall's Celtic Festival is held at the Ponsmere Hotel, Perranporth 16th-20th October 2013. The main festival site is in the sea facing Ponsmere Hotel, with satellite venues in Perranporth’s local pubs, Memorial Hall and Methodist Chapel.

Lowender Peran is a registered Charity set up to encourage recognition of Cornwall`s heritage and Celtic links as a vibrant, living tradition that people of all ages and backgrounds can participate in and enjoy. To recognise and value your own and roots and identity is an essential first step in recognising valuing and respecting other peoples. If Cornwall is to survive as a distinct entity in the future then each generation must show the next that our culture has something to offer them that is worth carrying forward into the future. Lowender Peran provides the ideal medium through which to do this.

Lowender Peran 2013 Event Info

Dancing – Barn Dance/Ceilidh/Troyl/Noz Lowen/Fest Noz/Twmpath/Stomp - whatever you want to call them, Lowender Peran is famous for its evening dances! They go on until 1am throughout the weekend, and are a chance to have a go at different dancing styles.

Concerts – Their formal Thursday evening concert showcases some of the finest musical talent in Cornwall. On Saturday and Sunday afternoon we have a more relaxed ‘cabaret’ style of concert where you can enjoy tea, coffee, cake and some great performances from local and visiting performers. ‘Food and Folk’ events during lunch times and in the evening are a chance to enjoy some music while you eat.

Workshops – A key area of cultural exchange is their programme of workshops, which are an hour long and provide a more in-depth and practical insight into the different styles of dance, music or song from local and visiting performers.

Language – You'll have a chance to hear Cornish spoken throughout the festival, as well as having a go yourself.

Storytelling –Saturday afternoon is dedicated to the tradition of storytelling, where you may hear old favourites such as the Mermaid of Zennor, alongside stories you don’t know so well.

Sessions – Throughout the festival site and in the local pubs you’ll be able to hear informal music sessions, and join in if the urge takes you to learn and share a few tunes!

Song – Lowender Peran stages formal concerts featuring local choirs as well as informal singing sessions around the festival site and in the pubs.

Seminars – In association with CAVA, the Cornwall Audio Visual Archive, on the Friday afternoon of the festival Lowender Peran explores Cornwall’s cultural identity on a more academic level.

Theatre – The festival often showcases theatre projects, and staged a performance of Cornish Lads by Cornwall Songwriters in 2009.
