Boekka’s 7th Birthday Celebration 9th August

One of our riders and his partner had visited a festival at Sidmouth and decided to visit Cornwall for a few days. This provided the perfect opportunity for a practice with Penkevyll and her two riders at the St Buryan village hall.  The rider with more experience was able to show our new rider ways of operating Penkevyll to give her character. It was also the day after Boekka’s 7th birthday and it was superb to have the members of Boekka altogether for this. It was also the first time Penkevyll and our new ‘Oss Morvaugh were photographed together.

A wonderful day with talented genuine friends.

Boekka’s Make-Over

We have been working hard on Penkevyll, she now has a new dress, tatters and a new mane. The Teazers also have new tatters on their waistcoats and a change in kit. The following are photos of creating Penkevyll’s new dress and mane, but the rest will be shown on a professional photo session to present Boekka’s new look.

St Piran’s Day Redruth 4th March

Boekka had a fabulous time at St Pirans in Redruth. Sunshine and showers did not dampen the festive spirit. Penkevyll and Teazer Laetitia danced a storm up the hill and crept up on many unsuspecting children in the crowds who were delighted! Cassandra gave us great rhythm for dancing on her drum and Steve Preston provided some lovely Cornish tunes. All performers in the procession were excellent.

Penkevyll and Boekka had a wonderful time at this event. The weather may have been cold and frosty, but the warmth from good friends radiated everywhere.

  1. What wonderful photos again! It always seems to attract the best photographers. It’s so good to see the black face. It really suits Boekka. Nice to see the masks back again 😀 xx
