A top-secret message falls into the hands of a group of surfers on Porthcurno beach. Can they deliver it to the mysterious Angelica before the bad guys discover them? The precious message is rushed around the world by boat, balloon and carrier pigeon until finally its secret is revealed, A joyous celebration of communication and culture with songs from all over the world.

Operation Kernow will be our fourth combined schools, music project. In 2021 we presented Ocean World to packed audiences, not to mention the partners of the G7 leaders, and in 2022 we staged One Small Bird, the Ballad of the Red-necked Phalarope and in 2023, Lullaby of the Tides.

“A triumph” (The Cornishman on Ocean World)

Every child who performed was buzzing with excitement … at the end of the performance and all learned so much from the experience” (Head Teacher, St Hilary School on One Small Bird)
