Pinks, Window Box and Hireth

There are always flowers to enjoy when walking through Penryn. Today it was firstly a front garden and then a window box outside a pub.

We have been to see the most amazing piece of theatre tonight – Hireth. The title Hireth is a Cornish word for which there is no direct English translation. It describes an intangible feeling, a longing for the familiarity and comfort of a place. It is the feeling I had in the 40 years I lived away from Cornwall. It is the feeling that my siblings express and now we have a word for it.

The play told the story of Cornish miners being called up to dig tunnels at the front. If you can get to see it, do. The live music, the community choir and the actors were all brilliant!
