Annual Thomas Flamank Commemoration
27 June
Date:
See below
Time:
Bodmin
Venue/Location:
Free
Admission:





The annual Thomas Flamank Commemoration will take place in Bodmin on Tuesday 27 June 2017.

This will be the 520th anniversary in which the Bodmin Lawyer was executed after the Cornish rebellion which he helped lead.

Each year numbers who attend this commemoration fluctuate but this year we really hope you as a local representative will be able to come and help us commemorate this event in Bodmin.

This year we are also marking the 20th anniversary since the Flamank 500th celebrations so we are assembling this year at the Flamank Stone in Fore St, outside Costcutters at 7pm where Reverend Rich will say a short prayer at 7.15pm which will be followed by a pavement walk/procession to the Flamank Plaque at Town Wall, by the Celtic Cross where wreaths will be laid and speeches made by invited guests.

Afterwards if you wish to join us at the Masons Pub where once again a local story telling group will read stories, play music and help us commemorate in a more relaxed manner, you would be most welcome! - ANDROW HAWKE, CORNISH NATIONALIST PARTY



Exhibition
Bodmin Heritage and Riding weekend
1 July
Date:
See below
Time:
Bodmin
Venue/Location:
Free
Admission:





The Riding Weekend dates back to the 15th Century and now we still have the Riding Sunday where the Mayor and Officers attend the Riding Service in St Petroc’s Church.

Heritage Day takes place on the first Saturday of July. It is a celebration which can keep you busy for the whole day. Please try to get a programme which gives you details of all the events.

At 10 AM the Ragadaziow sight the beast of Bodmin and they order the Helliers to give chase. The rest of the day will be spent with the Ragadaziow visiting the pubs in Bodmin performing mummers plays at the pubs showing the trial of the beast. The Helliers can also be seen chasing around the town with the beast visiting lots of pubs. During the day we have events taking place around Bodmin.

 In Fore Street we have stalls selling a wide variety of items together with a few games. At the bottom of Fore Street we have the Mount Folly where there is entertainment across the day, please see the programme.

Crossing to the car park there is a Craft Fair in the Shire House Suite together with a chance of having a cup of tea. In the car park we have a Food Festival. This gives you the opportunity of buying food to take home but it also offers a wide range of foods to consume on site. Beyond the food festival there is a large children’s area with entertainment and activities which always offers a good experience to children and parents.

Above the children’s area there will be two encampments one for the 32nd Regiment of Foot and also an Iron Age settlement where we have an author signing her books describing Iron Age living. We also have the reintroduction of the Bodmin Children’s Dance. The dance will start at the top of Fore Street, outside the library at 1:30 PM led by the Bodmin Town Band and followed up by Golowan Band from Penzance.

We also have busking events occurring around the town. Cats eyes Morris will be performing at various locations and we have a stage in the afternoon in Priory car park where there will be some performances.

At 15:49 PM we have a procession down Fore Street with all the performers of the day taking part. They will be led by the Golowan Band and hopefully will have the beast in the procession. The procession will go to the bottom of Fore Street and then the beast will be delivered for trial at 4 PM on the Mount Folly.

Please refer to the programme for the words of the trial. At the end of the day there is Cornish wrestling in Priory Park starting at about 5 PM. This is a fully authorised Cornish wrestling event and you never know you can find yourself fitting into one of the categories.
