This celebration of Bodmin town’s historical past dates back to medieval times was revived in 1986 and includes a specially written performance in which the infamous Beast of Bodmin Moor gets his just deserts. Heritage Day is packed with events taking place throughout the town.
The event includes local groups and charities stalls in Fore street and a full programme of activities on Mount Folly. The Food Festival with fresh food and produce takes place in the Priory Park Car Park. There will be historic cars and motorcycles on display and you can go back in history visiting the historic encampments of the Iron Age group, and learn about the Vikings and the 32nd Regiment of Foot. In Priory Park there is the Bodmin Future Heritage stage where young people can listen to live music or take part in open jam sessions. There are also several dancers and musicians busking, watch out for the circus acts, courtesy of Proper Cornish and Kellys. See if you can wake up a statue by putting some money in their bucket, or look for the stilt walkers around town.
