Humphry Davy helps celebrate the annual Golowan Festival

Published at 7:10pm 26th June 2020.

Humphry Davy School has joined the Penzance community online to celebrate the annual Golowan Festival.

At this time of year, the school's students would traditionally be performing music live at the Humphry Davy Statue on Mazey Day.

However, despite the physical parade being cancelled, the talented ‘Band of Fiasco’ decided not to let the current circumstances dampen their Golowan spirit.

Along with their fantastic music department, the band learnt the well-known song ‘Come Together’ by The Beatles and the students have created their very own music video straight from their own homes.

The song was chosen to compliment this year's very appropriate theme - ‘Golowan Gets Connected’ which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the first telegraph cable landing on the beach at Porthcurno.

Humphry Davy School always make sure they're a memorable part of Mazey Day.

Last year, they created a giant Orangutan structure which travelled through the streets of Penzance; and the year before, they paraded a huge Blue Lobster! 

Despite not having a physical parade, that hasn't stopped the moment of creativity as the students and staff have been creating their own themed masterpieces at home.

Withy structures, drawings, paintings and cakes were all crafted, photographed and filmed…and Humphry Davy have brought everything together to celebrate with our community. Take a look below!
