Cornwall's leading authorities on Cornish Wrestling will be in Madron on the 8th and 9th November to give talks and demonstrations during a two day exhibition of Cornish Wrestling.
The event will be free to attend and will take place in the Billiard Room, Landithy Hall. Throughout the weekend there will be a chance to have a go at Cornish Wrestling and watch competitions and demonstrations. There will also be talks from a range of experts on the history and practice of 'wrasslin' as well as on the folklore around Cornwall's most ancient sport.
Peter Sheldon, Secretary of the Cornish Wrestling Association said, “Wrestling is our national sport in Cornwall and is a direct link with our ancestors handed down over thousands of years. This weekend has entertainment for people of all ages from talks and films to Cornish singing – and a chance to wear the famous wrasslin' jacket and try out the sport.”
The event will be run as part of the Bewnans Kernow Penwith Points of View project in conjunction with the Cornish Wrestling Association and speakers will include Gerry Cawley, Mike Cawley, Trev Lawrence, Mike Tripp and Simon Reed. The Treggy and Red River Singers will give a performance, including rare traditional songs about wrestling on Sunday afternoon.
Both days will run from 10.30am – 3.30pm with free tea and biscuits available throughout the day. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
