There was sky blue all around when Cornish Bards in Australia held their 26th Assembly, on Saturday 27th October, 2012.
Held during the 3rd Cornish Cultural Celebration in Nowra, NSW the colourful ceremony was back-dropped by the scenery of the University of Wollongong Shoalhaven Campus and held on a warm, sunny spring day with blue skies.
13 Bards gathered led by Terry Johnson – Den a Boll from South Australia, and Bards had come from as far as Victoria, SA, and WA. Local MP and Mayor of Shoalhaven City Council, Cllr Joanna Gash welcomed the Bards and thanked the Grand Bard for allowing the ceremony to be held during the 3rd Cornish Cultural Celebration at the University of Wollongong campus in Nowra.
To superb harp music, the Bards applauded the Flower Dance performed by local children, and the Lady of the Southern Land presented a basket of local fruit and flowers such as Waratah, Bottlebrush, and Wattle, to the leader.
