Nick Thomas has submitted an application to Cornwall Council for our use of Flowerpot Car Park which will be closed to allow for the erection of a stage and sound equipment for ongoing musical performances by the various bands and musical groups whilst allowing the rest of the area to be taken by stall holders selling Cornish products. Cornish music, some in the Cornish Language will continue in the various entertainment venues into the evening.
Penkevyll the ‘Oss and the Boekka Dancers are to be given the ‘run’ of the town for ongoing celebrations.
Music will also occur outside the Halifax in the court there. The town will be decked in black and white!”
