About The Penzance Guizers

The group was formed in 2012 and follows the 'Guising' tradition; The 'Guizers' will be out and about in the pubs and streets of Penzance during Montol and the Twelve Days of Christmas, performing a Mummers play, traditional Cornish, Celtic, and Historical dance.  
Usually dressed in black and gold, during Midwinter the band can be seen in 'Mock Posh' and 'Tatters' with the addition of traditional Christmas colours and Venetian-style masks.
