Welcome to Torbay Cornish Association

Kernow Bys Vyken - Cornwall for Ever

Calendar of Events



Reestablished in 1972 to promote fellowship and to foster goodwill among Cornish people in the Torbay area of Devon, Torbay Cornish Association is a non-political, non-sectarian, social and cultural organization. It understood that the Cornish used to meet together in Torbay before the Second World War.

The Association meets on the last Thursday afternoon of each month, other than July and August and December, at 2.30 pm the Lounge at St Matthias Church Centre, Babbacombe Road, Wellswood, Torquay. The main activity of our monthly meetings is a talk, usually with slides, by a guest speaker or a member on a wide-range of topics from local interests to worldwide adventures as well as Cornish subjects. Refreshments are served towards the end of each monthly meeting. There are also social events held throughout the year, often arranged to raise funds for our nominated charities. We have also adopted a Cornish chough at Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary at Hayle. Our current programme is set out in the Calendar of Events.

Membership of the Association is open to all who are Cornish by birth, marriage or ancestry. Other persons, who have connections with Cornwall or an interest in its culture, language and traditions, may also apply for membership. There is a small annual subscription and a small monthly meeting charge, which includes the cost of refreshments.

The affairs of the Association are managed by an Executive Committee made up of the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, Social Secretary, Special Events Secretary, Immediate Past Chairman and three other members of the Association.

New members are always welcome and further information may be obtained by sending an e-mail to the Association's Hon Secretary,
