Plen an Gwari were the Playing Places or outdoor amphitheatres of Cornwall. There is a good example of one at Perran Round near Perranporth. Will Coleman, performer, academic, teacher and enthusiastic researcher of hidden Cornish history, has worked with archaeologists and volunteers to seek out evidence of the sites of other plen an gwari in Cornwall.

In his illustrated talk he will lead us through his research and thought processes to put forward the argument that not only were there many playing places in medieval Cornwall but they were a distinctive feature of Cornwall. His work is continuing and he would welcome the audiences comments and ideas about this innovative research. 

The book about Will's research will be available to purchase.

Refreshments will be available in Wesley Hall after the talk.
