A RURAL touring scheme in Cornwall has announced a series of events taking place across the Duchy.

Carn to Cove, Cornwall’s rural touring scheme, has said it is thrilled to present a spring season of theatre, music and laughter in Cornwall’s village halls, churches and community spaces.

There are more than 20 events taking place all over Cornwall and will be kicking from February.

First up will be singer/songwriter Bailey Tomkinson who will be bringing her ‘Kernowfornia’ vibes to The Old Chapel in Godolphin Cross on February 5.

Hailing from St Ives, Bailey has made national headlines by reaching number one in the iTunes Video charts, and again when The Times showcased her song 'Bright Red' as a rallying cry for sustainability and social justice ahead of the 2021 G7 Summit.

On February 19, Vår: The Story Of Hervor, shines a light on an almost forgotten Norse saga of a Viking warrior woman, created and performed by two Norwegian artists – storyteller, Mimesis Heidi Dahlsveen and composer and musician, Kristin Bolstad.
