"Everything about Lowender Peran is wonderful, the dancing and the dancers the music and the musicians, the atmosphere and the fact that it is Celtic!" - Gilly RP
As well as a tool for communication, language plays an important in our cultural identity, history and traditions.
A little over 7,000 languages are spoken in the world today and around a third of these are endangered, with less than 1,000 remaining speakers. We are fortunate that Cornish has a growing number of speakers but it remains important for all of us to engage with the language at whatever level we are comfortable with.
Lowender Peran is your opportunity for conversations or simple greetings and perhaps join in with a few songs in Cornish.
If you love Celtic music, celtic dance and celtic festivals or folk festivals you will love Lowender!
