The Lost Giants have been awarded funding from Cornwall Council to digitise an archive documenting The Lostwithiel Giants Parade. The archive comprises of seldom seen images, clippings, and writings dating back to 1990 when the tradition took root.

Due to lack of storage, many Lostwithiel Giants appeared for one year only, making this archive the only record of their existence.

If you have any images from the Lostwithiel Giants Parade that you would like to contribute to the archive, please get in touch.
