And so it begins..Life after Lockdown..

The community project side of Falmouth Soul Sensation often gets overlooked, they’ve got very slick over the years and can match any Semi Pro soul band around in terms of performance and content. They have raised 10's of thousands for local charities and national and international charities working locally with our January Acorn shows and others including Vogue and Helston. The number of local singers and musicians who have honed their skills working with them and the dedication of the core members to encourage and support newcomers has become legendary.

Their annual Falmouth Carnival/Falmouth Week gigs have always been central to what we do and the cancelation this year hit them hard. They’ve teemed up with the newly refurbished Princess Pavilions to put on an alternative show at the newly restored venue, a community rescue venture well worth supporting in itself to keep it open and running as a local resource. They will have to adhere to covid security and run at half capacity but Soul Sensations will be performing to a limited audience on Friday 6th August with support from the fabulous team at the Pavilions.
