The Cornish language community is made up of people all across the world who have a link to, or a love of Cornwall, its culture and its people. As well as the many users of Cornish in Cornwall and across the UK, there are active clusters of Cornish language users on many continents. These language users are often the descendants of Cornish pioneers, miners and explorers who went to seek their fortunes across the world. Frequently we see reports of language weekends and other events across the world, many of which are reported in An Gannas, the  Fellowship’s monthly magazine.

Local Groups

The Kowethas supports a number of local groups.  These include: An Kylgh Kernewek, Heudh yn Hav, Tus an West and Kowethas an Yeth Loundres.

National Anthem

At almost every language event the community finishes with a rendition of 'Bro Goth Agan Tasow' or 'Old Land of Our Fathers'. This is often punctuated by the cry of 'KERNOW BYS VYKKEN' or 'CORNWALL FOREVER' reflecting the passion of the community for its  commitment to its homeland and its people.

The Fellowship

The Fellowship commits to promoting and using Cornish language in all walks of life and regularly runs coffee mornings, fun days, stalls at major events and its extremely popular Language  Weekend held in Newquay.

Yeth an Werin

Many informal gatherings of Cornish speakers, known as Yeth an Werin, occur across Cornwall, where you can practise your spoken Cornish in a relaxed atmosphere.
