Bodmin Heritage and Riding Weekend
July 2, 2016 - July 3, 2016| FREE
Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd July 2016
On the Saturday join the crowds watch the chase of the fearsome Bodmin Beast around the town finally ending up with its trial on Mount Folly. Sample the goods of the Street Market and the Craft Fair, come and have a meal in the Food Festival or just buy some Cornish Produce for a treat at home. Watch the street entertainers and listen to the music from the groups ranging from the Town Band to street buskers. The children have their own areas with face painting, a clown, stalls and games together with a bouncy castle. Watch the re-enactors fight battles and learn their skills of war and peace.
Come into Priory Park to see the music tent for aspiring talent and dance, song and music with a Celtic theme.
On the Sunday join the people re-enacting the return of St Petroc’s bones after they were stolen in 1177 by France. They walk from Mary’s to Mount Folly where there is a brief service and then onto St Petroc’s Church for their return followed by a Riding Service. After the service there is a barrel of ale in the church or outside Chapels for all participants. For times look at the Website at: bodminridingandheritage.org.uk or at Bodmin Riding and Heritage Face book.
