All Things Youth
All Things Youth - All things youth has launched with so much energy and in only two months has demonstrated to be such a positive outlet for so many young people in our town. The aim of this project is to create activities supported and led by the young people of our community. A safe space to learn new skills, meet new friends and platform the incredible community work our young people are achieving.

A SONG FOR US
A celebration of lives and communities through music.

Budding songsmiths are invited to upload their own songs or simply share a song that holds special meaning. Help us create a music map of the UK.

What do you think Bodmin looked like when it was mentioned in the Dooms Day book or during the Black Death of 1349 or The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 or when Bodmin Gaol was built…?
THE KERNOW BEDROOM CHOIR
Singing songs have been a way of bringing communities together for generations so intoBodmin and Daniel Woodfield have teamed up to create a short series of tutorials to teach people the melody and harmonies of some of Cornwall’s most cherished folk songs.
You are invited to learn a part, in preparation of a live concert by the Kernow Bedroom Choir - one day.
intoBodmin have teamed up with Ha-Hum-Ah Theatre and FEAST to a ten episode audio play that can be enjoyed in self-isolation.
All ten episodes in our anarchic musical adaptation of some of the most famous fairy-tales of all time are available to download on the website.
