Saint Piran celebrations to take place in St Austell on Saturday 2nd March
Mebyon Kernow members in the St Austell area have organised an event to celebrate Cornwall’s national saint in the town on Saturday 2nd March.

Mac Waters as St PiranThere will be a fete in St Austell's Baptist Church between 10.00 and 2.00, with local arts and craft stalls, music and singing, refreshments, children's card making, a Cornish language corner, information from local Cornish and heritage groups, and so much more.

At 2.00, there will be a parade of troubadours through the town with St Austell’s very own St Piran, played by Cornish bard Mac Waters. There will then be music and speeches in White River Place. Speakers will include the Grand Bard of Gorsedh Kernow, Elizabeth Carne, and the Mayor of St Austell, Gary King.

From 3.30, there will be more music and song in the White Hart Hotel.

The main organisers of the event, Nessa Brown and Julie Fox, said:

“We think it is really important that St Austell celebrates St Piran and all aspects of Cornwall’s wonderful culture and identity, and we hope that lots of people from the town and surrounding area will be keen to join us on 2nd March.

“We would also like to thank everyone who is helping with putting this event together, including the St Austell BID team and White River Place.”
