Trelawny Shout

Trelawny Shout logo.jpgPolgooth Inn.jpg

You Know The Reason Why!

If those five words mean anything to you, then the chances are that March 5th does too. So how will you be marking St Piran’s Day again this year? 

Perhaps by lending your voice to join us and hundreds of others in pubs across Cornwall as we hold the third ‘Trelawny Shout’ for charity.

A shout is the term used for Cornish pub singing, and there’s always plenty of that going on this side of the Tamar.

But the Trelawny Shout is a little different. A hundred pubs, a thousand voices, one song, one magical hour.  

What better way to celebrate the strength of our amazing communities (not to mention tipping our hats to Cornwall’s patron saint) than to take part in a mass singing of the Cornish anthem, or The Song of the Western Men, to give it its proper name? Penned by Robert Stephen Hawker in 1824, the song continues to bind us today.  

The Cornwall Community Foundation began the St Austell Brewery supported event in 2015 and it has grown year by year. Let’s make 2017 bigger still. The CCF supports projects in every village and community in Cornwall so it is as much a part of this land as shouts and pasties and pub life itself.

The Fishermens’ Friends, The Aggie Boys, Kernow King, local shanty choirs, members of male voice choirs, barber shops, folk groups and Cornish bands all turned out in 2016. Please join them, and communities the length and breadth of the land, in 2017. Hundreds of Young Farmers from Cornwall will be leading a pre-shout on Lemon Quay earlier in the evening.

The pubs themselves will take on the challenge to raise money during the evening in whatever way they choose. And as you know, the CCF covers every parish in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly with all the money raised staying in Cornwall.

Please do join in. Keep an eye on our website and find Trelawny Shout on Facebook and Twitter for updates. We can’t do it without you!

Trelawny
Lyrics by Robert Stephen Hawker (1804–1875)

A good sword and a trusty hand!
A merry heart and true!
King James's men shall understand
What Cornish lads can do!

And have they fixed the where and when?
And shall Trelawny die?
Here's twenty thousand Cornish men
Will know the reason why!


Chorus:
And shall Trelawny live?
And shall Trelawny die?
Here's twenty thousand Cornish men
Will know the reason why!


Out spake their Captain brave and bold:
A merry wight was he:
'If London Tower were Michael's hold,
We'd set Trelawny free!

'We'll cross the Tamar, land to land:
The Severn is no stay:
With "one and all," and hand in hand;
And who shall bid us nay?


Chorus:
And shall Trelawny live? , etc.

'And when we come to London Wall,
A pleasant sight to view,
Come forth!  come forth! ye cowards all:
Here's men as good as you.

'Trelawny he's in keep and hold;
Trelawny he may die:
But twenty thousand Cornish bold
Will know the reason why!'


Chorus:
And shall Trelawny live? , etc.
