In this fascinating and funny illustrated talk, Cornwall Memory Game creator, Merryn Threadgould, explains why she made a uniquely Cornish pairs game for children. All 60 pairs of pictures tell a Cornish story, many sadly forgotten, until now. In this talk for the Lerryn Tuesday Club, you’ll hear stories of historic Cornish women both dangerous and doughty, hear a Fishwife polka unplayed for 170 years, find out how a North Cornish festival spread out across the country and learn why one tiny village in South Cornwall helped make a scientific breakthrough aiding criminal detection around the world.
