Summer Solstice in Penzance is called Golowan (Cornish for Feast of St John).

Penglaz is the local 'oss, a Night Mare, and Cassandra Latham (the local witch referred to before) is the Teazer.

Golowan is a week-long event, and the spiritual highpoint is the appearace of Penglaz - any internet search of the above names will give you lots of info.

My wife (Nikki 2) and I plan to be there.

Bright blessings
Richard

it will be hard to miss! try the harbour area, and the public halls at the top of Market Jew Street, or ask any local trader - your hotel will probably have the finer details for this year.

hope you have a great time,

    you should also visit the Men an tol - great if you want to get fertile - sennen cove is beutiful - St Just probably has the most Paganny stuff going on - they almost undoubtedly some sort of ceremony going on at the Merry Maidens -do check out the Minack theatre :

    http://www.minack.com/

    and next to it is porthcurno beach which always has lovely blue turquoise water even on a stormy day. They say Cornwalls liek a Christmas stocking - all the nuts fall to the bottom - check the eden project out as well :

    http://www.edenproject.com/

    always lots going on there. I have lived in Cornwall on and off for years theres some really special places and always some new secret to find - I hope you have a great trip.

    I didnt realise how old this thread was. Yes I love Cornwall too - its kind of my second home - theres not so much work though - which is why there so many hippies there :D
