New stretch target

The extra money raised for this project will enable us to secure the future of the Montol festival for future years.

Cornwall's iconic Montol festival will being held for the 10th time in 2016.  

What is Montol?  Montol is a celebration of the traditions of the Cornish Christmas which occurs every 21st of December. The most famous custom being celebrated during the event is that of guise dancing, a tradition of of disguise and misrule.

Why we need your help? Montol does not receive large amounts of public funding and is almost entirely dependant on public support both voluntary and financial. For the festival to continue this year we urgently need to raise the money to meet the challenges that increased participants bring with them and enhance this amazing spectacle.  The future of Montol depends on your support.

Our rewards. Our rewards are taken from the work of the association that runs Montol, including the book that inspired the revival of these customs.
