There are many myths and legends surrounding the mysterious Giants of Lostwithiel. It is said that they can be woken on New Years Eve with the sound of Bagpipes…
In 1990 a group of local musicians and craftspeople began making giants to celebrate the coming of the New Year. Now in it’s 26th year, the Lostwithiel Giants Procession has become an important part of Lostwithiel’s cultural heritage.
This year in preparation for the Giants return we have enlisted the expertise of professional artists to hold workshops in the Art of Giant Building! (The humongous, Enormous, Ginormous kind)
Come and get involved in this exciting and unique folk tradition! All ages and abilities welcome.
