Celebrate and share 'Our Proud Roots'

Our Proud Roots was performed in the woods at Wheal Martyn on Saturday 19th September, as part of the Whitegold Festival of Clay. Suzie West and SpinDrift Dance Collective performed a reflective, fun and inspired piece combining music, song, dance and storytelling. The performance reflected contributions of artwork, writing and photos kindly offered by the local community. The effect was truly special, echoing the appreciation for nature and beautiful clay landscapes our community has found during this unusual and challenging year.
