From the Corner of a Cornishman’s Eye – Bert Biscoe

19/10/2022 @ 14:00 - 15:00


Jubilee observations of a “chronic optimist” on key changes in the cognition of Cornish people 1952 – 2022
Join Bert Biscoe as he reflects upon changes for the better within the modern Cornwall that he helped to build.

Bert was born in 1952, just after the late Queen first felt the weight of the crown settle on her head. He was excited to attend the opening of the Tamar Bridge by the Queen Mother in 1962, and in 1977 he was amongst the crowd at the Winter Gardens in Penzance, when The Sex Pistols exhorted God to save the Queen!

It was at a Mebyon Kernow conference, in his role of Chair of the Cornish Constitutional Convention, that Bert was introduced as “a chronic optimist!”

We will allocate tickets using a ballot system, so please email or call Morrab Library to register your interest by Monday 10th October.
