This event is taking part on Sunday 3rd March.

You can take part in this celebration of Cornwall's distinct identity by joining the spectators who walk over the dunes and watch the play acted out in three parts. Dozens of actors and musicians portray the stages of St Piran's life from his birth in Ireland, his arrival in Cornwall and his miraculous discovery of tin.
