“Redruth Piran Fest 2013

Just a reminder that the next meeting of the Redruth St Piran Festival is set for 6PM this Wednesday 9th. January, 2012 in the Council Chambers, Penryn Street, Redruth.

Most all schools are now involved, several leading Cornish bands and musicians involved, local churches and pagans taking part, Chamber of Commerce on board and now one of Cornwall's top academics, the award winning Dr. Alan Kent looks set to pass his latest Cornish play over to the town.

All welcome.”

    Redruth St. Piran's Festival Working Group Redruth Community Interest Company (Registration No. 07489217) The Elms, 61 Green Lane, REDRUTH TR15 1LS Exciting opportunity for stall traders and anyone with quality second hand goods to sell. On Sat, March 2nd, Redruth is holding a massive St Piran's Day Festival. Many activities and events happening throughout the day. In the Flowerpot Carpark in the town there will be a stage with live music all day and I am offering you an opportunity to have a pitch in the 'street market' being held on the carpark. Traders of all types welcome, produce, craft, vintage, second hand, beauty, art, jewellery, home made cakes, knitwear... you name it. If you would like a space to sell home made candles, offer simple 'treatments' such as a nail bar, or head massage, sell jams or vintage goods or simply have a car boot sale from your car, then please contact me. Vehicles can be parked on site. Each pitch will equal two car spaces for a donation of £10.00. (bigger pitches available upon request). All donations will be put towards the St Piran Festival organisation fund. Unfortunately no cover is provided but there is room for traders to erect covers if you have them. Stalls must be in place by 10.00am and stay until 2p.m. (as a minimum). The live music on stage will be playing until 5p.m. A variety of musicians are playing and there should be a real buzz to the town and trading area throughout the day. At noon the formal parade ends on the car park and so there will be plenty of people at the site. Good signage and advertising will be in place. For more details and to book a place, please email me. jan1956@btinternet.com Happy Trading Jan

    Don't forget the meeting at 6PM this coming Tuesday evening folks! To be held in the Redruth Town Council Chambers it promises to be as well attended as usual! (extra seating had to be provided last time!) With every school in and around the town now involved as well as many other organisations including the Redruth Council, Gorsedh Kernow, Redruth OCS and churches and with our National Holiday fast approaching excitement is beginning to build. Many Cornish bands and music groups will be performing live and free in the Cornwall Council Flowerpot Chapel Car Park all day alomg with Cornish and Celtic related stalls and Redruth are playing at home! The car park is to be closed off to cars for the event and road closure orders are in place. Children's competitions and workshops at the Kressen Kernow - Cornwall Centre (courtesy of Cornwall Council) Come celebrate Cornwall's National Saint and see our town decked in our National colours of black and white!

    It is those with their hearts in Cornwall that make Cornwall what it is, those unsung heroes if you like, that carry on regardless doing their bit. http://tinyurl.com/ap9fbto http://tinyurl.com/b5bdcq5 http://tinyurl.com/akzsx2d

    I agree. Many of the Cornish Language Bands will be in Redruth that day including some from Penwith. It promises to be the biggest and best town celebration of our National Saint although Falmouth are starting their own celebration this year in addition to the existing ones across the Country. We also have MPs on board. Several London magazines have picked up on this as well. Cornwall Council are handling co ordination of events via Town Development Managers and it will be wall to wall St Piran on and in local media. We have handled enquiries from all over with rising interest in Cornwall's distinctive Celtic heritage as a result of this and the Cornish Language Partnership stand ready to deal with translations into Cornish for any official addresses by Mayors, Civiv Leaders and so on. Here is an early release from Cornwall Council: Pirantide Once again we are at the point where we start looking forward to Pirantide. Every year the list of events gets longer, which is why we are giving you ample notice of them! It is also an excellent opportunity to focus on increasing the use of Cornish and once again MAGA will carry some easy phrases on the website and will be encouraging everyone to use them widely. Last year at this time we highlighted the growing use of Cornish on Twitter and the start of the 'I pledge' group on Facebook . Both have flourished over the past year. Many more projects and initiatives are under way, and the number of schools and other organisations using Cornish and celebrating Pirantide has also grown tremendously. As Cornish speakers we tend often to focus on the difficulties and frustrations in front of us and don't step back and appreciate just what has been achieved and what is now happening, due to the tireless work of so many people. Perhaps this Pirantide we should do just that and celebrate a little – in Cornish of course!

    I will be there on the day and at the Truro and Perran processions!

    "Several London magazines have picked up on this as well." Very good, I tried to get a thread going on here sometime back inviting others to put a few links to promote Cornish music but it didn't happen. I hope everything goes well.
