Grand Bard’s speech at Launceston 2nd September 2017

Press release: “Step Into Cornwall’s Story” says the Grand Bard of Cornwal.

Launceston gets ready to host the 2017 Esedhvos Festival of Cornish Culture.

Cornish Bards in Brittany.



After breakfast in the lakeside town of Huelgoat with delegates from the Welsh Gorsedd (Hywel Wyn and John Bull) Cornish Bards Mick Paynter (St Ives) and Tim Hambly (Launceston) (were met by the Celtic Secretary of the Breton Gorsedd, Veronique Ury-Madec (Sklerijenn) and its harper Jean Paul Ury-Madec(Telennour) and driven with the Welsh to Brasparts, and thence with more Breton Bards to the Stone Circle at Sant Kaduan on the slopes of Menez Mikael where the Gorsedd ceremony took place.

Several Bards and Novices were initiated at the ceremony, Hywel Wyn spoke to the Gorsedd in Welsh and Mick Paynter (Skogynn Pryv) in Breton. He said that Cornish people always felt at home in Brittany which was after all Cornwall’s first colony and hoped this was reciprocated.
Tim Hambly(Roscarrek) carried the Cornish half of the joining sword which was attached to the Breton half and ceremonially presented to Hywel representing the mother gorsedd.

Per Vari Kerloc’h (Morgan), Head of Goursez Breizh, the Breton Gorsedh spoke in Breton of the challenges of recent developements in France and Brittany.
He referred to the success of Macron’s new party  The Republic Marches On
while wondering exactly to where it was marching. He approved of the President’s expressed wish for Britain to change its mind over leaving the EU, but hoped that this was not hiding an ambition to “take over our neighbour’s social position within the Union” he added that Brexit or not the Cornish and the Welsh will always be welcome in Brittany.

After the Gorsedd mead was passed around and all returned to the village hall in Brasparts for a splendid meal where old friendships were renewed, new ones made, music played, and joint business of the three Gorsedds was carried out.  As usual Breton hospitality was unsurpassed.

Thanks for Mick Paynter for the article and photo.
