JollyRoger on Tour

Date: 1 Nov to 30 May / Time: Please see below


Hailing from the pirate haven of Penzance, this fun, young, pirate-folk band have hung up their cutlasses, exchanged their galleon for a land ship (named Hubert Cumberdale) and taken to a life of music. Formed in 2019, JollyRoger are already taking the south-west by storm and gigging port, bow and starboard.

February 2020

14th One Year Party - limited tickets available
9.30pm-1.30am

La Sirena
12 Bread St, TR18 2EQ Penzance, Cornwall

www.wegottickets.com

Party like pirate with JollyRoger as they celebrate their first year together in foot-stomping fashion.

Kicking off the night will be the talented Draper (local acoustic guitarist & singer), followed by a set from JollyRoger & then a jukebox disco where you can pick what songs are played! There will be a pirate fancy dress competition and some fantastic prizes too.

It's the place to take your date on Valentines day, meet a valentine, or party as a single pirate!

Inspired and influenced by the vocals of 'The Pogues' crossed with 'Fisherman's Friends', the energy of the 'Dropkick Murphys' and the comedy of 'Tenacious D', it's hard to categorise JollyRoger! They take pride in their performances, demand audience immersion and are ‘bound to get your toes tapping’.

‘If you don’t like sea shanties, songs about drinking rum and shouting used as backing vocals then this probably isn’t for you but if you do have a sense of fun then jump on in, the water’s lovely’ -Listen with Monger - Reviewing EP ‘Everyday Pirate’-

Hailing from the pirate haven of Penzance, this fun, upbeat, pirate-folk band have hung up their cutlasses, exchanged their galleon for a land ship (named Hubert Cumberdale) and taken to a life of music.

‘Great live band, high energy, fun & professional - if you’re looking for a band that will get the crowd jumping, here they are!!’ -West Kernow Sounds - Podcast with Craig-

Formed recently in 2019, JollyRoger are already taking the south-west by storm and gigging port, bow and starboard. Soon getting booked for the likes of Boardmasters Festival and performing on BBC RADIO CORNWALL and TCR RADIO.

JollyRoger comprises of brother & sister, Jae Dennis (guitar/ ukelele/ harmonica) & Samantha Hannah (mandolin/guitar) plus Kynan Sandles on the lesser-seen acoustic bass guitar. These guys are family and their connection on stage adds that little extra to their music and performances as they naturally use the audience and foot stomping as their percussion.

'Sensational' - TCR RADIO-

When all three sing together, they provide a ‘whistle wetting romp full of three part harmonies’. With a mixture of upbeat folk music, some original pirate material and some good old fashioned sea shanties, there’s something for everyone; they are bound to warm your cockles!

Limited tickets available - only £4.95 online - order now

Godolphin Trust10
8.30am - 11am

Godolphin Trust10, free 5 or 10K multi-terrain run on the fourth Sunday of every month.

Trust10 is a free way-marked trail run for all abilities to enjoy the Godolphin estate. It's free, it's fun, it's informal.

Godolphin Trust10 is two laps of 5K, so 5K runners and walkers are welcome too.

Registration is at 8.30am at the Godolphin Welcome Hut and the run starts at 9am. The Piggery will be open for teas, coffees, cake and socialising after the run from 10am.

The route is only way-marked on Trust10 day, but you can check out the Godolphin Trust10 map and give it a try any time.

This is a multi-terrain trail run, so we definitely recommend trail shoes for clambering over the hedges and negotiating the mud.

Please bring your own timing device if timing is important to you as this is an informal event and we don't provide timing. Marshalling is also limited, and the event relies on volunteers to make the magic happen.

We recommend this event for over 14 year olds to run the 10K, and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult for the run.

For full guidance see the Trust10 FAQs, www.nationaltrust.org.uk/activecornwall

Dogs can join in on the lead, as long as you're happy that they'll be able to manage the hedges. Don't forget to bring your change for the car park (and for cake afterwards if you fancy it) or proof of National Trust membership to park for free.

We have an amazing team of Trust10 volunteers, but we're always looking for more help with marshalling, setting up the route, welcoming the runners and back marking.

If you would like to get involved please contact Email: GodolphinTrust10@nationaltrust.org.uk,
Tel: 07766 422 166

You can also become a National Trust fundraiser and raise money to look after this special place. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/activecornwall for information
