What’s it all about?
The Montol Festival is an arts and community festival celebrating the midwinter solstice and Cornish traditions of the past, culminating in the main event, Montol Eve on December 21.
The team behind Montol would love as many people as possible to dress up in mock formal and masks and partake in this annual event.
