The village of Stithians is remarkable in several ways – a lovely place to live with many amenities including a school, shops, pub, churches and a thriving community hall. But it is rare to find a village so well served with musical activities, in particular a Male Voice Choir, now celebrating 70 years, a silver band celebrating 90 years and our own Stithians Ladies Choir a mere 50 years old!
On Saturday 30th September the men’s choir hosted a lovely charity concert in the Methodist Church at Stithians involving all three musical groups and a magnificent £950 was raised to support the work of Motor Neurone Disease ( Cornwall ) With Adrian Wilton as compère and a wonderful audience the poor weather was forgotten and everyone had a thorough good time and we felt privileged to be part of such an uplifting evening.
Tickets for the Saturday evening performance are nearly all sold out! The only remaining tickets for that night, 15 November, are available from Stithians Spar Shop.

Rehearsals for Ocean World are back in full swing now, as the performance dates approach. There were a few little lapses in memory after the summer break but we’re back on track now. This week, we’re looking forward to a rehearsal with our crew of fishermen hauled in from around Stithians.
We are delighted to have received funding from FEAST to help with putting on the production of Ocean World. FEAST is a programme to make great art happen across Cornwall.
