Celebrating our legendary Cornish giant, Cormoran our team of narrators bring to life the story of the giant and his fearless foe, Jack the Giant Killer. Cornish folklore tells of a mythical giant who once lived on the Mount, a fearless creature who would wade ashore and steal cows and sheep from the villagers to feed his gargantuan appetite.

There will also be nautical tales of a mythical Mount boatman who has been on the island since the dawn of time and tells of everything that he has seen and heard over thousands of years; from the “Grey Rock in the Woods” to the vision of St Michael; from the first sighting of the Spanish Armada to the footprint left by Queen Victoria on the harbour cobbles.

Storytelling will take place on either the Dairy Lawn or by the cannons at the castle summit, and occasionally our band of storytellers may pop up in the harbour and village area and tell a story - keep an eye out!

Storytelling is FREE with castle entrance on the hour at: 11am- 4pm

Storytelling sessions are approximately 30 minutes.
