Redruth's Celebration of Cornwall's National Saint Piran - SATURDAY 2ND MARCH, 2013
The next meeting working on arrangements leading up to Redruth's very own Saint Piran's Festival is set for 7PM Wednesday 28th November, 2012 in the Saint Rumon's Club (formerly the Royal British Legion) Penryn Street, Redruth TR15 2SP where free parking is available.
A second very well attended and vibrant meeting has occurred following on from last year's massive Saint Piran celebrations. It was attended by the Mayor of Redruth, members of the Town Council, Redruth Chamber of Commerce, representatives from local schools, the Redruth Old Cornwall Society, representatives from Carn Brea Parish Council, the Redruth Community Interest Company, Redruth Radio and many others.
REDRUTH'S VERY OWN SAINT PIRAN'S FESTIVAL IS NOW FIRMLY SET FOR SATURDAY 2ND MARCH, 2013.
The theme of the day which celebrates our very own Saint Piran, a man of diversity and peace, is to be the colours black and white and local schools and indeed nursery schools are warmly invited to work with that theme for the grand procession with their young people even dressed as miners and bal maidens, fisherfolka and farming folk.
Very much a day of Cornish music, Cornwall's premier processional band, 'Bagas Degol' is set to lead the 'parade'.
At the time of writing, the 'Boeka Dancers' and 'Penkevyl the 'Oss' which have featured on many television programmes as well as with Paul Merton on his programme which explored Cornwall have confirmed their attendance as well as the Grand Bard of Gorsedh Kernow.
Many other Cornish Bands are stepping up to join in, some of them performing in the Cornish Language and the local churches are participating with addresses in Cornish.
