A week of events is being held to make the Cornish language accessible to all – whatever their ability. People can try some Kernewek by going to an event where the Celtic tongue is being used, design a poster or a meme, make a film or take a photo using it.

Speak Cornish Week, which this year runs from the 23rd June to 2nd July is a chance to highlight all things Cornish. The programme of events includes bus trips, cream teas, train rides, outdoor conversation events, children’s activities and more – and there is still time to register an event if you would like to organise something yourself! Contact speakcornish@yahoo.co.uk

The theme for this year is Prag Na? Why not? We’d like to know what you would like to do – tell us in Cornish in a film, on a poster, in a meme, in a photo – there are lots of possibilities!

  • Prag na wrewgh mordardha (Why not go surfing?)  
  • Prag na wrewgh restra kevewi? (Why not have a party?)
  • Prag na wrewgh dybri dehen Kernewek? (Why not eat Cornish cream?)
  • Prag na wrewgh kewsel Kernewek? (Why not speak Cornish?)

You will find suggestions on the Speak Cornish Week Facebook page or on Twitter.

Then post your suggestions on social media with the hashtag #speakcornish and share away! If you need more translations the Cornish Language Office will be glad to help! cornishlanguage@cornwall.gov.uk

Let’s make this year’s Speak Cornish bigger and better than ever – Prag na?
