Cornwall's language, music and literature is being celebrated this weekend with an annual festival of culture.
It culminated in the gathering of around three hundred Bards at the annual Gorsedd. The ceremony was held in the grounds of the ruins of Launceston Castle which it's said was once the home of the King of Cornwall.

Police are questioning a man after an armed robbery at Launceston Steam Railway in Cornwall.
A man threatened the assistant working in the railway's gift shop, pulling out a kitchen knife and demanding the contents of the till.
He made off with several hundred pounds, assaulting a police officer nearby before escaping.
The officer needed hospital treatment but is not said to be badly hurt. No one at the railway was injured.
Many shops in Launceston are losing business because they haven't had access to a telephone or internet for weeks.
A faulty cable along the high street has affected up to 200 lines. It's hitting retailers hard during what should be their busiest time of the year.
BT says the problem has now been resolved but some areas are still experiencing problems.
We are sorry for the delay in restoring services for some households and businesses in Launceston. This has been a complex repair involving the replacement of a substantial section of underground cable, night-time working on a busy road and the need to clear blocked underground ducting.
The repair job was completed last night and we are now checking to ensure that, in the event of any customers still having problems, these are cleared as quickly as possible.
