A unique Christmas service that celebrates the Cornish carols of the 19th century.
Churches, chapels and preaching pits of Cornwall will fill with song this winter as a special Christmas service celebrating the 19th century carols of the Cornish diaspora, tours to Lostwithiel, Gwennap and St Just. After raising the roof of Truro Cathedral last year, this choral celebration and service brings together singers and writers, poets and speakers from all over Cornwall.
This project has been kindly supported by Arts Council England, The Jack Moon and Lors Fund and FEAST. The Glad Sounds of Christmas service will take place at:
- St Bartholomew’s Church Lostwithiel on Saturday 7th December 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
- Gwennap Pit on Sunday 15th December at 3.30pm – 4.30pm or Camborne Wesley Methodist Chapel if it is raining.
- St Just Miners Chapel, St Just, Penzance on Saturday 21st of December 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
The service is free but organisers are asking those who want to attend to book a place via ticketsource and contribute to a retiring collection.
