St Piran’s Day is just around the corner and you know what that means – it’s time for the Trelawny Shout!
The brainchild of the Cornwall Community Foundation (CCF), the 9pm mass singing down at the pub of The Song of the Western Men – to give the tune its proper name –happened for the first time in 2015, with over seventy pubs and nearly three thousand people taking part.
Growing year on year, the annual celebration of all things Cornish has become a firm favourite to finish off our patron saint’s day in style. So whereever you are in Cornwall, get to a pub near you to help raise money for the CCF, which funds projects in every parish in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and guarantees every single penny raised stays in Cornwall.
The pubs themselves, with the Brewery and CCF behind them all the way, will take on the challenge to raise money during the evening in whatever way they choose. Every shout will play an important part in our collective charitable effort to raise funds for CCF.
As ever, the Fishermen’s Friends will be helping out on their home turf at the Golden Lion in Port Isaac, NoteAbility Community Choir will be at the Rashleigh Arms, while the Aggie Boys, other shanty choirs, male and female voice choirs, barber shops, folk groups, ensembles and Cornish bands from Botallack to Bude will be lending their talents to the Shout.
