From the Secretary of the An Gof Committee:
An Gof commemorated 517 years on
"I am writing as secretary of the An Gof Committee ask with your help to spread the word of our Annual An Gof Commemoration which will be taking place this year on Friday 27th June 2014.
We are trying really hard this year to help spread the word to raise awareness of this event which always proves to be a huge success however we are trying to involve more people from further afield.
The evening starts at 7pm at the An Gof Statue in St Keverne (which can easily be seen on the entrance to the village). We hold a commemorative service here and then this is followed by a procession down to the Square where ‘a chosen speaker’ talks about a chosen subject to do with Cornwall.
The evening culminates with an evening of entertainment in the Parish Hall starting at 8pm and each year we choose a different theme.
This year we are celebrating the life of Cornish Artist John Opie ‘The Cornish Wonder’.
The local school children will sing a song to start the evening. There will also be artwork produced by the children displayed around the hall and judged on the evening.
The An Gof Players will then perform a play based on John Opie.
This is followed by a Pasty Supper.
The evening will then round off with some more Cornish entertainment and community singing.
Pasties and Bar Available
Entrance is £4 (not including refreshments).
If you are able to come that would be great but if you could help spread the word I would be really grateful.
