The Granite Kingdom: A Cornish Journey, with Tim Hannigan (at THE ACORN)

Thursday 6th July 2023
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Event Description

The Granite Kingdom is a fascinating, lyrical account of an east-west walk across Cornwall: a distant and exotic Celtic land, domain of tin miners, pirates, smugglers and evocatively named saints – somehow separate from the rest of our island and where mythologies abound. Travel writer Tim Hannigan talks about his zigzagging journey on foot to discover how the real Cornwall – its landscapes, histories, communities and sense of identity – intersects with the many projections and tropes that writers, artists and others have placed upon it.
