Spring is here and with it we’d like to welcome a new Cultural Ambassador of the Month – Ed Rowe. Ed is well known for his role as Cornish comedian Kernow King. He has written and starred in performances which draw on local history such as the recent 2018 production, Hireth, as well as touring his own stand-up comedy show. In his spare time he enjoys surfing, gardening and spending time with family and friends. Read on to find out about his favourite experiences in Cornwall.
Edward Rowe, based in mid Cornwall.
I have written and performed shows with Cornish history and heritage always at the heart of the show – Trevithick! and Hireth being the most popular. Most recently I’ve toured The Cornish Caretakers to nearly 40 primary schools, bringing to life four men and five women from our glorious past.

Tricky one. Numerous incredible surfs, but most likely camping down at Trevedra Farm near Sennen with my friends and children in the summer.
Pottering in my garden until lunchtime, swimming with my children at Little Dennis in Falmouth, looking around a secondhand bookshop, a quick surf somewhere quiet and then dinner at the Wheelhouse followed by a pint overlooking the harbour in Falmouth.
Simon Harvey. We have good chats after and if it’s too long a show our squirming in the seats goes through the roof.
I don’t find any performance space usual to be honest. There are some magic ones, of course. I think I’ve performed in every theatre, village hall and now school in Cornwall – they’re all magic.
The Ace of Spades at Port Eliot.
Probably the lanes around Roche.
My mum’s and dad’s.
Hockeysmith. They shouldn’t be a secret.
