A celebration of the flower and the local industry
Preparations are well ahead in the village of Mawgan in Meneage for the seventh Daffodil Festival at the 12th century Grade I listed church of St Mawgan in Meneage. The church was fully restored in 2017, including a new roof, and the proceeds from this event will help maintain the church to a high standard.
The Mawgan Daffodil Festivals celebrate the wonderful industry that surrounds us in West Cornwall, and the delightful and varied daffodil, by decking this beautiful church with thousands of daffodils of every variety available at the time. Give all your senses a treat and come and enjoy the sight and smell of thousands of daffodils, view displays of equipment used over 50 years ago, listen to music from local musicians and admire displays of paintings, photographs and other crafts with a daffodil theme.
The music this year so far includes local organists, local classical instrumentalists, Maen Voes Choir from St Keverne and the bell ringers will be in action on Saturday and Sunday.
The Festival is made possible again by the donation of daffodils from the Scrimshaw family of R H Scrimshaw and Sons Limited and the church is very grateful not only to them but for sponsorship received or promised from other local companies and organisations.
Taking place on Saturday February 16th to Monday February 18th from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm each day the festival is free to enter. Light refreshments will be available including pasties and homemade soup at lunchtime on Saturday and Sunday and tea and cakes all day every day. On Sunday there is a Celtic evening service at 5.00pm, taken by the new Priest in Charge of the Meneage Benefice, the Revd Mike North
