The 91st celebration of the  Golowan Festival dates 22nd June 2019. The celebrations  are centred on the lighting of bonfires and fireworks and the performance of associated rituals. The midsummer bonfire ceremonies (Tansys Golowan in Cornish) were revived at St Ives in 1929 by the Old Cornwall Society and since then spread to other societies across Cornwall, as far as Kit Hill near Callington. Since 1991 the Golowan festival in has revived many of these ancient customs and has grown to become a major arts and culture festival:

A chain of beacons are lit and prayers and singing begins at 10pm

Mini bus access only
