Kernow King will be performing at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro next month in a show that is a little different to the sort he's normally know for.

The history of Cornwall is an inspiring and exciting one, full of many achievements and stories told by the people that made Cornwall great. In The Cornish Caretakers, we see two museum caretakers on their final day of work at museum unearthing these stories. And they’re not just going to tell you – they’re going to show you.

Step inside the Royal Cornwall Museum as you’ve never seen it before with this brand-new show by the creator of Trevithick! and Kernow King’s Greatest Hits. This play will introduce you to some of the greatest Cornishmen and women from history.

You’ll meet John Couch Adams discovering the planet Neptune, and Bobby Leach, the first man to go over Niagra Falls in a barrel. You’ll meet Rowena Cade, builder of the Minack and Emily Hobhouse who pioneered health care in Africa as well. There’s something to fascinate everyone.

The Cornish Caretakers is a family-friendly 50-minute comedy written by and starring Edward Rowe. It can be seen at the museum on Thursday, July 13, and Friday, July 14. The Cornish Caretakers is directed by Simon Harvey and features actor Jenny Beare. This project has been funded by FEAST and Cornwall Museums Partnership with support from Arts Council England and Cornwall Council.

As well as this production, the museum is laying on activities for children all summer. There will be workshops between 11am and 3pm throughout the week, starting on July 27. These include Messy Mondays, Explore on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Telling Tales on Thursdays and Punch and Judy and puppet-making at weekends. There’s also the chance to win £50 with the best selfie taken around the museum.
