Montol 2017

Time to Celebrate Montol 2017

The great thing about this time of year is the chance to take part in a variety of festivities and parties. One of our favourites, simply for the sheer fun of it all, is Penzance’s Montol. Put simply, a reinvention of a traditional Cornish mid-winter customs and practices.

Details of the 2017 Montol celebrations in Penzance

In 2017, Blacks of Chapel Street is delighted to have been asked to help sponsor towards the event. We would like to invite you to join us at the bar and dining room in Chapel Street to watch the afternoon and evening unfold.

First up is the Sundown Procession from the top of Causewayhead which will lead to a gathering for ‘Fire and Song’ in Chapel Street.

The choosing of the Lord of Misrule will happen just above Blacks of Chapel Street, outside the Union Hotel.

Then the main procession will commence at 1800 from Chapel Street with the evening culminating with the late night procession and ‘Chalking of the Mock’ outside the Admiral Benbow at about 10 pm.

So keep yourself energised and warm by visiting Blacks of Chapel Street. We have plenty of mulled cider/wine, hot teas & coffees, mince-pies and our full range of food and drinks available. Check our drinks menu here

Come and mingle and watch a delightful evening’s entertainment in Penzance.
