FRIDAY 1ST NOVEMBER

Tots Troyl (Under 5s) - 1.30 – 3pm, Ballroom

Tickets – This event is FREE

Aimed at the under 5s and their parents/carers, but open to families with kids of all ages. A Troyl is Cornwall’s answer to the Scottish Ceilidh – a traditional social dance event.

It’s great exercise and a fantastic way for you and your children to be part of a Cornish music and dance tradition that generations have enjoyed. No previous experience or special footwear necessary. There will be a live band and a caller to guide you through all these small-people friendly dances.

We’re really excited to be hosting our first ever Tots Troyl at Lowender Peran this year.

If you want to see what sort of thing you can expect, it will be along the lines of the brilliant kids ceilidhs run by CeilidhKids in Edinburgh:

SATURDAY 2ND NOVEMBER

Entry to all events in the Hotel Bristol during the daytime (up to 6pm) is only £1 or free for children aged 12 and under.

Magic Mirror / Mirour Hus - 11am – 2pm, Little Dining Room

Come and have your photo taken on this giant full length interactive ‘selfie’ mirror, and learn one or two words of Kernewek – the Cornish language – at the same time. Grab some  props and say ‘Keus!’ (Cheese) with a whole host of speech bubbles with different phrases in Cornish. Printouts available for a donation, so you can take home a souvenir of your day. 

Dance Displays and Music - 11am – 5.30pm, Main Dining Room

Enjoy a rolling programme of dance displays and music from our visiting and local performers. Each dance display will finish with an opportunity to jump up and have a go yourself.

Face Painting - 11am – 2pm, Beneden Room

Tying in with the Morgowr stories, come and enjoy FREE face painting on a sea creature theme; sea serpents, mermaids and many more!

#BiliKernow Pebble Painting - 11am – 1pm, Beneden Room

Have a go at painting your own #BiliKernow pebbles. ‘Bili’ means pebbles in the Cornish language. #BiliKernow has been inspired by the hidden rocks phenomenon encouraging children and families everywhere to get creative and get outdoors.

The twist with #BiliKernow is that all the rocks have a word or message in the Cornish language on the back. Splann! (Superb!). As well as adding a bit of magic to someone's day, we hope finding these rocks will inspire curiosity about Kernewek, the Cornish language. There will be help on hand to help give inspiration for pictures to paint as well as translations.

Kids’ Singing Workshop - 11.15am – 12pm, Beneden Room

Come and enjoy a good old Cornish sing-song for kids and families, led by Bronnie Gibbons

Join us for the grand blind ice cream taste test! How does your ice cream taste? Frothek (fruity)? Hweg (sweet?)? Can you guess what flavour it is? Experts will be on hand to put your taste buds to the test and try your hand at a few words in Cornish in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

There will be 5 flavours to try - 2 of which will be vegan friendly (and we will pre-warn you which ones).

If you can't make the ice cream blind taste test - you can still purchase some delicious Cornish ice cream (or blood-orange sorbet) at our ice cream trike on Sunday morning/afternoon, manned by Cornish speakers who can help you order in Cornish - if you'd like to try your hand.
