Golowan – The Never Ending Story

The Golowan Cliffhanger

A recent chapter of Golowan ended on a cliffhanger.  

“Cliffhangers are used in dramas that make the reader (or festival attendees) want to find out more.  There’s a dilemma, revelation or a twist in the turn of events that will keep the audience coming back for more.”

Would the festival be run by a private company? Could it survive the upset? Who would apply to be involved?  There were so many questions towards the end of 2015 that left the future of Golowan up in the air.  The festival (phew) is now back with the community and being run by Golowan Community Interest Company (a not-for-profit organisation.)

Planning is now in full-swing and the CIC promises to deliver this traditional Penzance festival – with no changes to everything we love about it – but as always with a twist here and there to keep it unique each year.

Visit our blog for a weekly update about what’s coming up and spread the word that the festival runs from Friday 17 – Sunday 26th June.
