Montol Festival

15th December 2015 - 21st December 2015

What's On in Cornwall

The Montol Festival is a fantastic 6-day community festival celebrating the mid-winter solstice - culminating in the main event, Montol Eve on December 21. There's plenty to do and see throughout the week; including lantern and mask making workshops, live bands and carol services - plus late night shopping in Penzance. Many individuals take part in the Cornish traditions of Midwinter and Christmas, including Guise dancing - dancing whilst wearing masks and wearing mock formal costumes. Several fire beacons are lit throughout the seaside town.
