In 1990 a group of local musicians and craftspeople, inspired by giants seen in Brittany France, decided to create their own new years celebration Procession. Since its humble beginnings the procession has grown and draws in a crowd from far and wide, inspiring a new generation of giant makers and musicians. The iconic music written for the Spanish Galician pipes by John and Frances Webb, is still making the giants dance 26 years later. Long live Lostwithiel’s Giants.
