The main performance at the event, which takes place at St Austell Baptist Church on Friday, August 1, will be the acclaimed Adventures in the World of Cornish Pub Singing.
Singers Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley took part in a journey across Cornwall visiting pubs where Cornish harmony singing was still being practiced and kept alive.
The result was a collection of songs and stories that will be recounted live with the accompaniment of the Red River Singers. Guests will be invited to join in the verse and song sheets will be available.
There will also be a Cornish quiz aimed at testing your knowledge of Cornwall led by former Grand Bard Mick Paynter. Entry to the event also includes a summer buffet.
The Cornish summer evening is being organized by Bewnans Kernow, the partnership of Cornish Cultural organisations.
Organiser Jane Howells said: “Bewnans Kernow is the partnership of Cornish cultural organisations, with partner organisations ranging across the cultural spectrum from Gorsedh Kernow, the Federation of Old Cornwall Societies, the Trevithick Society, Cornwall Archaeological Society, Cornish language and Cornish sports organisations and many others.
“This will be a great evening of Cornish entertainment, with song, laughter, a quiz and some great food and company.”
A Cornish Summer Evening in St Austell takes place on Friday, August 1, at 7.15, at St Austell Baptist Church Hall, West Hill, St Austell PL25 5ET. Entry is free to members of the Bewnans Kernow partner organisations and £3 to non-members.
