Cancellation of Golowan Festival 2020
Market Traders who have made a payment for 2020 should please see our Markets’ page.
In these difficult and uncertain times there are decisions that need to be made in relation to how the Corona virus/Covid 19 will impact on our lives, work and events. The directors of Golowan Festival Community Interest Company have very recently had serious discussions and meetings with, amongst others, the Cornwall Council Local Safety Advisory Group, Penzance Town Council, the festival’s Event Safety Manager and our supporters and partners.
Based on the advice we have been given and after much consideration it has been decided that this year Golowan Festival, as organised by Golowan Festival CIC, will sadly need to be cancelled. This is not a decision that has been taken lightly and whilst we appreciate that many people and groups will be disappointed about the cancellation of such a well-loved community event we are sure that everyone will understand that the decision has been taken in order to reduce the risks posed by Covid-19 and paramount in our reasoning is the need to do everything possible to protect and maintain public safety and well-being.
If you have any questions do please get in touch via email or on the Golowan Facebook or Twitter sites.
We thank everyone for their support and understanding and would ask you to look forward, as we will, to next year’s festival when Golowan will be celebrating its 30th anniversary.
