Run by Golden Tree Productions, Hellfire Kernow is a community-based project to deliver an innovative programme of events and workshops leading up to a spectacular celebration of the Life of St Euny, Redruth’s patron saint, on 1 May 2023.

They’ll be working closely with Redruth School, Redruth Rugby Football Club, community groups and local businesses to develop the event and deliver workshops in the run-up to the May Bank Holiday celebration.

After creating costumes and banners, choreographing theatrical interventions, practicing the sport of hurling and readying a Garm Vresel (‘battle cry’) residents of Redruth will join their crew. These crews are based on the medieval keverangow (‘hundreds’) of Cornwall and centred on the crossroads at the bottom of Redruth Fore Street, which is where a colossal clash of colourful kryws will lead to a spectacular procession through the town.
