Solempnita Awen/Awen Ceremony

Sunday 19th June 11am Gorsedh Kernow AWEN ceremony, Warbstow Bury, off the A395 at Hallworthy, near Davidstow, North Cornwall.

Awen ceremonies are often held in unpopulated venues, so there are no toilet or changing facilities at this site, which is very rural.  Please allow at least 15 minutes to robe at your car, and then walk to the top of the Bury (300 yards). Stout footware is advised. Please park in the field opposite the entrance to the Bury.


From Mid and West Cornwall, take the A30 to Indian Queens, fork left on the A39 through Wadebridge and Camelford. 2.5 miles after Camelford fork right on the A395 to Hallworthy (2.5 miles). In Hallworthy take the second left to Warbstow (2.5 miles). Turn right into the field opposite the Bury entrance.

From South East Cornwall, take the A395, off the A30, 3 miles west of Launceston, to Hallworthy, turn sharp right to Warbstow (2.5 miles) and right, into the field opposite the Bury.

From North Cornwall turn left off the A39 at Wainhouse Corner to Canworthy Water (2+ miles) then turn right to Warbstowbury (1.5 miles). Turn left into the field opposite the entrance to the Bury.

Book Launch Friday 26th February 2016 at 2pm. "Geraint - Last of the Arthurians".

This new novel by Donald R Rawe, Scryfer Lanwednoc, bard of Gorsedh Kernow, will be launched at Kingsley Village Suite ( next to the first floor Cafe, Kingsley Village, Fraddon). Guest readers will read extracts from the book and copies will be on sale after the launch.
Twenty years in the writing and described as a historical work of fiction with plenty of facts within it, the author says "at least some of its suppositions must be true, and hopefully will be supported by later emerging evidence."

"A rollicking read." - Frank Ruhrmund.
