Big thanks to all those people who have offered to volunteer for Golowan but we need more!
You might want to steward a parade, meet and greet people, give out water to children in the parades – there are lots of ways you can help!
So do please get in touch if you’re interested – see our volunteers’ page and why not come along to our Volunteer Sign Up Session at Exchange Cafe, Princes St, Penzance, this Sat 15th, 11 am – 1 pm to meet us and find out more?

The 2019 festival theme is Golowan Goes Green! denoting that we will be taking further steps to make the festival environmentally friendly and sustainable.
