St Piran’s celebrations throughout Cornwall

As we experience the first opportunity to celebrate Cornwall’s national day properly since 2020, St Piran’s events are being organised by Cornish folk here at home and abroad. Many of the major towns throughout Cornwall have activities as do many of the smaller villages. Parades will be held in a number of towns throughout Cornwall.

Bodmin’s procession will be taking place on Friday 4th starting at 10.45am from the Old Library in Lower Bore Street. Leading the parade through the town will be Cornish piper and former Grand Bard of Gorsedh Kernow Dr Merv Davey. As usual lots of children will be participating with dancing and singing throughout, ending up at Mount Folly when Trelawny will be sung by one and all. Further dancing by children will take place along with Cornish plays and songs in St Petroc’s Church.

Also holding a parade will be St Austell starting at 1.30pm on St Piran’s Day and this will be processing around the town. Many other events including a Cornish Cultural Conference in Holy Trinity Church, which will have Cornish talks, film and music between 11.30am and 3.00pm. There will be Cornish music in the Market House, a craft fair in Fore Street and performances by Tywardreath Morris and Playmake Theatre starting at 10.00am. Many Cornish heritage groups will be participating throughout.

This will take in the Oratory, then the medieval church ending at the 9th century St Piran’s Cross close by. Plenty of Cornish flag flying, music and singing, all in all a lovely event for all the family.
