This summer, Kresen Kernow hosts a very special temporary exhibition as four historic Cornish language play scripts return to Cornwall for the first time in centuries.
Mes a’n Kemmyn/Out of the Ordinary exhibition: Tue June 22 – Sat Sept 25, during opening hours
Pre-booking essential, more information at https://kresenkernow.org/event/mes-an-kemmyn-out-of-the-ordinary/
The exhibition will unite The Cornish Ordinalia and The Creation of the World (on loan from the Bodleian Libraries at the University of Oxford) with The Life of St Meriadoc/Bewnans Meriasek and The Life of St Kea/Bewnans Ke (on loan from the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth) under one roof for the first time in history. The manuscripts form a very significant part of Cornwall’s written and language heritage, as well as providing glimpses of a distinct theatrical tradition that took place here centuries ago. Due to the small size of the Treasures Gallery at Kresen Kernow, it will be essential to book your visit via Eventbrite.
