Volunteers play a major part in Golowan celebrations. Volunteering is a great way to participate and to feel connected and supportive of our community festival. There are many roles from stewarding and shaking a donations tub to distributing much needed water to rehydrate the wonderful parade participants!
Golowan 2023 is getting closer by the day and if you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the form below and we will get in touch with more information.
Penzance Council is our lead supporter and Golowan Festival is very grateful for its continued support of the festival, contributing both financial support and advice, and assistance in other ways.
However, we are also thankful to the following organisations and businesses for their continued help and support.
Golowan was awarded funding from the Culture Recovery Fund so we could overcome setbacks caused by the Coronavirus lockdown. This means the future of Golowan is much more secure.
If you are a business or an individual interested in becoming a supporter or sponsor of Golowan, we would be delighted to hear from you.
