    Trevithick Day - Camborne

    Camborne Trevithick Day is a community led street festival of free entertainment.

    There is a diverse mix of street entertainment, with roaming entertainers, and covered stages hosting music for all tastes - from traditional to modern, brass to rock bands, plus local choirs. Highlights  are the morning children’s ‘Bal-Maidens and Miners Dance’; and in the afternoon ‘Trevithick’s Dance’(adults) followed later by ‘The Steam Parade’, which is probably the largest array of steam engines in the world that proceeds through an urban environment. The Steam Engines are on display throughout the day, as are vintage vehicles, and stationary engines. Streets are lined with stalls, and a fairground operates in the Town’s central car park. Indoors there are hospitality events, exhibitions, and a flower festival.

    All the main streets of Camborne are closed to traffic for the event, but a park & ride facility, signed from theA30, with a capacity for a thousand vehicles, is available (£5 including a programme)

    May Day - Padstow

    Padstow May Day - 'Obby 'Oss Day

    What’s it all about?
    May Day (or 'Obby 'Oss Day as it is known) is the biggest day in Padstow's calendar. It is not unusual to see 30,000 people crammed into this little town on the day when Padstonians from all over the world return to their roots. The origins of the Obby Oss are numerous. Some say the celebration has its roots in pagan times, others that it's a rain maker, a fertility symbol, a deterrent to a possible landing by the French some centuries ago or perhaps a welcome to the summer.

    What happens?
    Locals spend the night decorating the town’s streets with flags, flowers and greenery complete with a maypole and the following morning two "osses", one red and one blue emerge from their stables. The “osses”, swirling and dancing proceed through Padstow's streets taunted by a Teazer, who leads the dance with theatrical movements. The accompanying retinue are dressed all in white with their costumes decorated with ribbons and sprays of cowslips and bluebells. As the procession moves around the town, dancers perform a traditional gyrating dance to the sound of musicians and drummers. Last, but not least, are the followers, young and old who join the procession every year singing of the traditional May Song.

    How can you take part?
    It gets very busy and car parks and streets in the old town are closed to traffic. Advice is to get there early. There is a field at the top of the town near the Tesco supermarket where a park and ride service is available. You can also park in the village of Rock across the estuary and take the regular ferry across to Padstow.

    St Agnes Bolster Festival

    What’s it all about?

    A celebration of Cornish music and art featuring life size puppets, a drum band and a 28ft giant effigy re-enacting the famous Cornish legend of the giant called Bolster. A great day out for all the family.

    What happens?

    Long ago Cornwall was apparently full of marauding giants and one of them, Bolster, terrorized the good folk on the north coast regularly eating their children. To celebrate Bolster’s eventual demise, the villagers of St Agnes hold a pageant every year starting with a lantern procession, bonfire and barbeque.  The following day the Knight Sir Constantine and the bolster drummers parade the streets of the village in search of Bolster (a giant effigy) ending in a dramatic confrontation on the cliffs above the stunning Chapel Porth Beach.

    How can you take part?

    This spring festival incorporates one of the county’s oldest legends with plenty to entertain old and young alike. Follow the lantern procession up to the beacon and gather around the bonfire where clay houses are fired and then used the following day to symbolise the village of St Agnes. The next day the pageant is about 45 minutes long and features life sized puppet characters such as the Mayor, Sir Constantine and Mrs Bolster. The Bolster drum band, musicians and dancers perform in the National trust car park at Chapel Porth beach afterwards and refreshments are available from Robin’s cafe.  Kids especially will love the huge puppets and effigies as well as the traditional pageantry. Evening entertainment includes live music in the village.
