In a nutshell

London’s annual celebration of Cornish contemporary culture and entertainment featuring live music, poetry, Cornish ale and food.

What to Expect

This year, Kernow in the City welcome back two performers who have appeared before, but in different guises.

SKILLYWIDDEN are amongst the leading lights of the nos lowen style of Cornish Celtic dance music. Born out of the legendary Dalla, Skillywidden are renowned for whipping up wild nights of Cornish dancing at the main events on Cornwall’s nos lowen scene. The line-up includes members of Dalla, as well as special guests drawn from the cream of Cornish musical talent.  Skillywidden’s exhilarating performances convey the sheer joy they take in Cornwall’s indigenous culture.

WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR have been picking up praise from far flung corners ever since Ruarri Joseph took the step to go public with his erstwhile secret alter-ego. Debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, was released in the summer to widespread critical acclaim, and their shows have been steadily winning over fans up and down the country. The indie-rock three piece sees Ruarri joined by bassist Naomi Holmes and drummer Harry Harding, channelling classic blues and roots through a grunge/indie filter, with diverse influences including The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads.

The night will be fuelled by Skinner’s ale and Cornish pasties brought up from the Warrens Bakery in St Just and, along the way, will also embrace Cornish language and poetry, and as is tradition, the evening will include a rousing collective ‘shout’ of Trelawny led by the Wrecker’s Wednesday team, KitC’s monthly London Cornish social night spin-off event. So, if you’re in London and you love Cornwall, come one and all to celebrate the Cornish National Day at Kernow in the City!
