Sunday 22nd May

Celebration of May Day.

Three archival films exploring different customs from around the region will be shown alongside a recent documentary about the continuing traditions of Flora Day including the Hal an Tow.

As preparations get underway for Helston's Flora Day celebrations on Saturday 7 May, we are delighted that Hal an Tow Crier Jack Morrison has selected and will introduce a programme of short films exploring some of the many May Day and spring celebrations unique to communities in Cornwall with reference to a few further afield.

Inside the Hal an Tow is an independent production for Cornish Stuff by Hannah Wakely & Charlotte Agnew, who were 3rd year TV & Media students of Falmouth University when the film was made.

Permissions to show the archive films have kindly been granted by the English Folk Dance and Song Society, and the Box Plymouth.

Admission £12.50, including CAST Café supper from 6pm

Booking essential please email [email protected] or call 01326 569267 during opening hours.
