Gorsedh Kernow Awards Ceremony @ By Gorsedh Kernow Website
Sep 5 @ 2:00 pm

Gorsedh Kernow is to hold a small Bardic Ceremony

Gorsedh Kernow is pleased to announce that although the Esedhvos and Bardic Ceremony planned for Bude-Stratton has been postponed until 2021, they will be holding a small Bardic ceremony on 5th September 2020. This ceremony will not involve some of the usual features, but will include the roll call of those Bards who have left this year and the welcoming of New Bards into the circle. Our Member, Priscilla Oates will be one of those New Bards. They will be adhering strictly to government guidelines and limiting numbers, which means that most Bards will be unable to attend this ceremony and they will not be able to welcome the public to come and watch.
With this in mind, GK are excited to announce that the ceremony will be live streamed at 14:00 on 5th September on the Gorsedh Kernow website, so that as many as possible will be able to join online, including those in the Diaspora as well as family and friends of New Bards. Details of how to access the live-stream will be available on the website nearer the
time. We hope lots of people will join online for this unique event.

Gorsedh Kernow is very grateful to FEAST who have awarded funding under their Re-ignition Programme to make the live-stream possible.

Gorsedh Kernow exists to maintain the national Celtic Spirit of Cornwall and to give expression to such spirit, to encourage the study of Cornish history and literature, the Cornish language, to foster Cornish art, music, dance and sport and to link with other Celtic countries.
