Out of the Ordinary

In summer 2021, four historic Cornish language manuscripts united under one roof for the first time in history for a very special exhibition. They are all Cornish language religious play scripts which left their homeland centuries ago and have all been cared for outside of Cornwall. Together they provide glimpses of an immersive and exciting theatrical tradition from medieval Cornwall. This online exhibition is designed to give a little taste of the exhibition.

We also made a short film celebrating the exhibition, which you can watch on our YouTube channel. Also on our YouTube channel is a range of talks and presentations on the manuscripts and themes within them.
