Saturday March 2nd, 10.00 am to 3.00 pm
Celebrating all things Cornish, come and join us in Redruth for our St Piran’s Day. St Piran’s Day is our festival to celebrate all things Cornish! Every year, the county celebrates one of the patron saints of Cornwall – St Piran. With a wealth of mining history, it’s no surprise we celebrate the patron saint of tin. Come share your Cornish pride and traditions to help showcase our vibrant, fun community. We’ll have music, entertainment, market stalls, fresh foods, and not forgetting our St Piran’s Day parade followed by the Trelawny Shout!
The festival began as a celebration of tin miners but today St Piran’s Day it is celebrated far and wide as a way of recognising all the great things about Cornwall… Legend says, St Piran was tied to a millstone and thrown into the sea in Ireland in the 5th century. He survived and was said to discover tin pouring from black rocks which is where the design of the Cornish flag derived from. – A white cross on a black background.
Here in Redruth, we’ve got an exciting day of Celtic festivities planned, more details coming soon.
