About the Event

Amidst the trees of St Petroc’s annual Christmas Tree Festival, the Sou’westers, members of Handbell Ringers of Great Britain and Loveny MVC, Cornwall’s premier and award-winning choir, present ‘A Cornish Christmas Celebration’ on Saturday 9 December at 3pm in St. Petroc’s Church, Bodmin.
