CELEBRATES OUR TOWN, OUR

PLANET GOLOWAN A WOOL AGAN

TRE, AGAN NORVYS

As we celebrate the 33rd year of its revival, the

Golowan Festival once again provides the perfect

antidote to troubled times, lifting spirits, raising

hopes, and binding our community together.

Our theme this year “Golowan Celebrates Our Town,

Our Planet” reflects the power of the community to

come together and appreciate what is special and

what really matters.

We firmly believe that our town – Penzance and

the surrounding communities of West Cornwall – is

special and over more than 30 years of its colourful

history Golowan has brought joy and laughter

through music and dance, fabulous parades,

fantastic images, magical mayhem, and

midsummer madness.

Golowan is uniquely special but also without doubt

one of the finest community festivals in the country.

Nothing in this world exists in isolation, however,

and as part of the greater community – our planet

– Golowan has, over the years, demonstrated its

commitment to sustainability and environmental

responsibility.

Our theme this year, therefore, reflects that

continued commitment and invites everyone taking

part to share their appreciation and love for all our

community – local, national, and international.

Welcome! Dynnargh!

Celebrating Golowan, however, would not, of course,

be possible without the “community” within the

community – the team and volunteers who work

throughout the year - and tirelessly in June - to bring

the Festival alive and ensure that everything runs to

schedule. We are desperately sorry that this year one

vital member of that team will be missing. The passing

of Craig Bond just before Christmas has left a huge

hole in the Golowan Festival and in so many lives. We

will all miss you, Craig!

Golowan goes on, of course, and intrinsic to this

is the support we receive from our main partner

Penzance Town Council together with the Arts Council

of England, FEAST, the National Lottery, Penzance BID

and Sustainable Penzance.

We seek to preserve the magic of old traditions while

pursuing exciting innovation. This year particular

attention has been paid to giving more young people

the opportunity to get involved through an innovative

music “Expo” in the period leading up to Mazey

Weekend culminating in the popular and highly

successful Youth Stages. It goes without saying that

young people are the future of ‘our town, our planet’

and Golowan, while continuing to appeal to all ages,

will actively encourage their participation and

enjoyment of a community festival which has come

down through the generations, and through them, will

prosper and thrive for generations to come.

Summer is here, Golowan is back again in all its glory

– thank you to everyone who makes it possible –

enjoy yourselves! The Golowan Team 2023

GOLOWAN

By giving their precious time Golowan

volunteers pay an important contribution

to the Penzance community. We cannot

deliver the Festival without them! Golowan

volunteers help bring our community

together in celebration and Mazey

madness and make Penzance a place

where we love to live. With all that in mind,

we wish to thank our beautiful volunteers

and ever friendly, helpful stewards, who

advise and guide our community during

Penzance’s glorious summer Festival.

If you want to make a real

difference to Golowan in 2023

then, please do get in touch!

To volunteer please contact us by email:

golowancommunity@hotmail.com or by

Phone: 01736 369686 and be part of the best community event in

the south-west.

Giving up just three hours of your time would be so helpful and

as a thank you every volunteer receives a Golowan T-shirt and

refreshments at Volunteer Headquarters.

Volunteers

Bodhogyon

Golowan has need of volunteers between Friday 16th and Sunday 25th June – but

especially between the long weekend of Thursday 22nd (Mock Mayor Elections), Friday

23rd (Golowan Fireworks), Saturday 24th (Mazey Day Parades) and Sunday 25th June

(Quay Fair Day).

Volunteer roles we need to fill are:

• Stewarding the processions

• Collecting donations

• Meeting & greeting

• Litter picking

• Giving out water during

the processions

• Running the Golowan stall

• The Golowan Green Brigade who wake up

early on Mazey morning to decorate Market

Jew Street and St Johns Hall with greenery and

bunting for the Mazey Day Parades

• Stewards/marshalls to help the Golowan Band

perform on Mazey Eve, Friday 23rd and on

Mazey Day, Saturday 24th for the Men and

Maids (email: thegolowanbandorganiser@gmail.com)

Volunteer refreshments are kindly sponsored by Mr. Hugh Scantlebury

Farewell and Thank You

Farwell ha godhon meur ras dhywgh

Craig Bond

Craig Bond was an integral part of the Golowan team and what he didn’t

know about the operational side of the Golowan Festival just wasn’t worth

knowing. That know-how and generosity of spirit was shared with so many

people and organisations not only in Penzance but throughout the world

and his passing leaves a massive hole- not only in the Festival - but in

the hundreds of lives that he touched with his skill, kindness and selfless

friendship. Golowan, along with so many others, will miss him deeply.

After a lifetime of relentless hard work - rest in peace, Craig.

David Gallie

David Gallie was Town Clerk of Penzance Council from February 1993

to October 2009 during the vibrant, colourful, and eventful early

years of the Golowan Festival’s revival. In particular, in 2007 when

circumstances could have threatened the Festival’s future, he was key

to the Council’s intervention which ensured Golowan’s survival. It is fair

to say that the wonderful Golowan Festival we celebrate, and treasure

today might not have been here without him. After stepping down from

his role with the Council, David spent years as a much-valued Golowan

volunteer and his vital know how was relied upon by many every year

as he escorted the Mazy Day parades. His participation, along with Jack

Dixon and others, in making what could have been a tortuous process – counting the thousands of

pounds worth of cash so generously donated by the public on Mazey Day – into a fun ritual down

at The Barbican every year was also much appreciated. A lovely man.

Rest in peace, David.

“Hairy Phil”

One of the delightful surprises of Mazey Day every year is waking up

to discover how Market Jew Street has become magically bedecked

with summer greenery. Nothing ‘magic’ about it at all, of course, as –

like so many things in this wonderful festival – it is the result of tireless

work from a committed team of Golowan volunteers. A key member of

the ‘Greenery Team’ for many years was Phil – known affectionately

to all as “Hairy Phil” – a larger than life figure who was not only a

stalwart of the greenery crew but also – back in the days of the old

marquee – formed part of the “Tent Crew” who had a colourful role in

erecting and maintaining that much-revered Golowan institution. Another of his many roles was

to proudly carry – along with Terry and Elise Sampson – the Golowan banner every Mazey Day. A

true Golowan legend. Rest in peace, Phil.

GOLOWAN

Mazey Day, launched each year by the Mayor of

Penzance and the Mock Mayor of the Quay, is

the centrepiece of the festival in which artists,

schools and other community groups fill the

streets with music and giant sculptures in a

series of parades. Thousands of people line

Market Jew Street, which becomes a huge

marketplace for the day, with traders

selling all manner of goods as well as food

from all around the world. Penzance has a long

history of trading and markets, including The

Quay Fair, which is still, to this day, a part of

the Golowan Festival celebrations!

On Mazey Day, market stalls line the streets

of the town centre accompanying the wonderful

array of local shops in Market Jew Street,

Causewayhead, Alverton Street, Market Place

and Chapel Street. Watch the parades and listen

to bands from the stage at the Humphrey Davy

Statue whilst perusing the wide range of goods

on offer including local baked goods, local crafts,

beautiful jewellery, glorious clothing, sweet treats

and much, much more.

The Golowan Food Court, in Festival

Square (Greenmarket Car Park), has a wide

range of international and local cuisine.

Whether an American style burger, French

crepe, Indian or Thai curry, or a vegan treat,

there is something for everyone to feast on

while soaking up the entertainment from

Festival Square’s Golowan Folk Stage.

On Quay Fair Day, the markets are located

along the Quay of the historic Penzance Harbour.

Amble at your leisure, browse the clothing and

craft stalls, while tasting gastronomic delights,

enjoy street music next to The Boatshed and The

Folk stage on the Harbourside. Grab an ale from

one of the historic local pubs and keep an eye out

for the Kowethas an Yeth stall, where you can join

in with activities celebrating the Cornish language.

Show your support for local Charities and

Community Projects by visiting their market stalls

and look out for the Golowan stall to purchase

official Golowan merchandise and goodies.

The Golowan stall can be located in the centre

of Penzance on Mazey Day at the bottom

of Causewayhead and outside the Barbican on

Quay Fair Day.

If you are interested in having a stall on Mazey

Weekend (always on the last weekend of June)

for this year or for Golowanfest 2024 then

please contact the Golowan Festival Office on

01736 369686, or email:

MURDER BY APPOINTMENT – THE

1940’S DIAMOND HEIST

@PENLEE PARK OPEN

AIR THEATRE, 7.30PM

Tickets: £5.00 – £30.00

The 1940’s Diamond Heist

– set in the Savoy Hotel,

London,1944.

The Kimberley Star, the

world’s most valuable

necklace, has tonight been the centre of attention

being worn by its owner, Lady Dunster at the

wartime fundraising evening at The Savoy Hotel

With prominent coverage in the national press, it is

sure to have captured the imagination of diamond

enthusiasts and jewellery thieves around the world.

With the fundraising part of the evening now

completed the necklace is locked away in the

hotel vault for its overnight stay with a Scotland

Yard Detective in attendance.

Rumours abound in London that the infamous

jewel thief ‘The Phantom’, is showing interest.

Whilst cleverly avoiding detection throughout

France and Britain, and widely believed to be

retired, will the Kimberley Star lure ‘The Phantom’

to London’s Savoy? Can you guess the culprit and

win a prize? Plus … spot prizes for the finest 1940’s

audience costumes too!

A series of new oil

and acrylic paintings

on handmade gesso

by Elizabeth Loveday,

featuring characters from

Cornish Folklore and the

artist’s life, plants, and

Cornish landmarks. Using

colour, texture, scale, and figurative drawing,

she builds scenes of tenderness and frivolity

to describe her home. Plains of smooth

gesso contrast the grainy, which is mixed

with Cornish sand and earth. This backdrop

holds the characters in a dream-like state, in a

moment that captures the mood of place.

TOO YOUNG TOO STAY IN,

TOO OLD TO GO OUT

@ ACORN THEATRE, 7.30PM

Tickets: £14 Adv £16 Door

Nigel Osner takes a quizzical look at those no

longer young. On the one hand are daunting

realities and cruel setbacks, on the other there is

more self-confidence and we might learn what’s

best for ourselves. There’s a lot of humour but

with a bitter-sweet edge. Nigel illustrates his

theme with original songs and stories by male

and female characters. These include Gerald who

is having a taxing night out in central London; a

rich designer who falls for his hunky gardener;

the man who ignores a wheelchair-bound woman

until he needs a wheelchair of his own; and

the woman driven mad by her companion on a

river cruise. Melodies are by various composers,

sometimes even by Nigel.

SUN & MOON THEATRE:

ROMEO & JULIET

@ PENLEE PARK OPEN AIR THEATRE, 7.30PM

Tickets: £6.00 – £32.00

Sun & Moon Theatre are returning to Penlee

with a vibrant, emotional, and bold production

of Shakespeare’s most popular drama of starcrossed

lovers and warring families. The feud

between the Montagues and Capulets has been

reimagined as a rivalry between two family-run

movie studios in the 1930s. Touted as the studio’s

latest ‘Golden Couple’, Juliet, the current ‘Girl

Next Door’ has been matched up with matinee

idol, Paris. Former child star, Romeo, is initially

besotted by studio ‘It Girl’ Rosaline, until he falls

for Juliet at the Capulets’ premiere after-party.

35

GOLOWAN

Their lives controlled by this turbulent industry

and period, Juliet and Romeo find joy, solace and

excitement in their hasty romance, a desire for

something true in an artificial world, and most of

all, a hope for a better future. But comedy meets

tragedy as fate has other ideas for them; behind

the glitz and glamour of the film industry lies dark

secrets and insecurities, and when their defiant

union faces great opposition, it leads to violence,

chaos, and despair.

Suitable for all ages, join us on a summer’s night

for the world’s most famous love story, featuring

live music, fights, humour, and tears, as we

explore the love and conflict between friends,

families, and couples, that still rings true today.

“From the

this theatrically

spun dance

show is born,

shaped by the

luminosity of

the alegrías,

the depth of

the taranto,

the rhythms of

the tangos and bulerías and the jondura of the

soleá and the farruca. Like the newly germinated

seed that is nourished by the dewdrops, this work

is the sensorial path that blossoms like azahar

from the lament of the traces of the past towards

the uncertain and graceful future. Strength and

elegance work in harmony with the tradition of

flamenco culture…’Where the flight of hands,

sensuality, and taconeo induce passion.’

With a growing reputation for their earthy and

generous shows, Boilerhouse is a five-piece

acapella group who put their passion, joy, and

love of singing into every performance and we’re

delighted to welcome them back to the park.

Drawing on many influences, including folk, the

poetry of Charles Causely and working songs,

amongst others, here is a band rooted in the

Cornish singing tradition but looking out to the

world. Annamaria Murphy is a writer for BBC Radio

4 & Kneehigh Theatre & is currently collaborating

with musicians Bagas Degol. Pauline Sheppard

writes for theatre, screen, animation, magazines

and radio. In 2021 her first book Through The

Granite Mirror won the prestigious Gorsedh

Kernow Holyer an Gof Award for outstanding

literature. Anna and Pauline create magical tales

that combine humour with insight, drawn from

their long experience of writing stories, poetry,

and plays.
