Recording of the ceremony on Saturday 5th. September 2020


Grand Bard Elizabeth Carne's speech at the Bardic Ceremony on September 5th. 2020:

Welcome to our special Bardic ceremony today. This is an unusual year and an unusual ceremony, with such a small number of Bards present. We are sorry that because of COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing the majority of our Bards are unable to be with us today and we hope they are joining us through the Live-stream. A special welcome to all of those near and far who are watching online.

This year should have seen us in Bude Stratton for our Esedhvos and Bardic ceremony. Unfortunately that has not been possible, but we very much look forward to being there in 2021.

Gk has held a ceremony every year since 1928, even during the War years, so it was important for us to be able to continue that tradition. We meet today to welcome our new Bards for 2020 and to remember those Bards who have left us this year, and we have lost some very special Bards since our 2019 ceremony, including Gwenenen, former Grand Bard, who is greatly missed.

2020 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the first Old Cornwall Society and there were to have been great celebrations during the year. We are pleased therefore to welcome as our special guest today the President of the Federation of Old Cornwall Societies, Mrs Karin Easton.  We hope that this recognition of the strong bond between Gk and the Federation in some way makes up for the missed events.

In these unusual times we need to keep working for Cornwall. So many of our traditions and events have had to be cancelled, but we are still working to promote Cornish heritage and culture as well as the Cornish language. Our Awards and Holyer an Gof winners have been celebrated online this year but we shall be back in 2021.

Gorsedh Kernow is very grateful to FEAST who have awarded us funding under their Re-ignition Programme to make the live-stream possible
