All Hallow’s Eve

We had an amazing time last year.  We will be doing it again on Saturday October 29th.  This year will be even bigger and better with a lantern procession and six osses!  If you missed it last year, here are some photos to give you an idea of what happens – it is such a unique event and a great way to welcome the dark half of the year!  Keep an eye on our blog and events pages for more details about this year’s event.  We also have a Facebook event page:

The day started around 2pm with morris dancing outside the Museum.

As it started to get dark, the crowds gathered and the osses approached.  At the Museum door, they performed a pwnco ceremony to bless the Museum.

Then the osses and their retinues joined the morris sides outside for some flame lit dances.

we decorated the Harbour with pumpkins and held a candlelit evening at the Museum (which finished at 11pm) to end the evening.  The osses toured the public houses of Boscastle.  Everyone had an amazing time – can’t wait for this year!  Not long to go now.  Thanks to everyone involved especially Cassandra Latham Jones.
