    I got this on twitter as well. Our National celebrations are getting bigger (no not Bigger - he's a one off although he does have the monkey on his organ pipes lol young or not cornwall not actually) every year.

    This is wonderful. I had no idea that our celebration of our National Saint were quite as widespread. As we slowly break away from England, we need to further develop our own culture. Will definitely be joining in this year!
