Now based in the Celtic land of Cornwall and organising regular Trad Sessions. Urban Kelt is also now operating a Celtic themed coffee shop in Newquay and encouraging use of Celtic languages and greater interest in Cornish Celtic Music. The Celtic Lounge is based in the Gallery & Museum room of Kowethas Ertach Kernow (Association for Cornish Heritage). It was opened early in 2020 by the Grand Bard of Gorsedh Kernow, Elizabeth Carne, and has proved a popular venue for all those especially interested in Cornish and Celtic themed events.
For Kowethas Ertach Kernow it is exciting to be able to share our Gallery and Museum rooms with the Urban Kelt - The Celtic Lounge coffee shop. Being open to greater possibilities of sharing knowledge about Cornwall's heritage with a wider audience and the opportunities that creates.
