An Daras, portal or doorway in Cornish, is an outreach project of Lowender Peran a festival celebrating Cornwall's distinct heritage and links with the other Celtic nations. An Daras draws on archive material from the festival and a series of research projects to provide an extensive collection of songs, tunes, dances and customs from Cornish tradition.
During 2021 Cornwall celebrates its unique legacy of theatre and drama with a display of the Mystery Play manuscripts at Kresen Kernow. The Mystery Plays were originally written and performed between the 15th and 17th centuries.
