Redruth celebrates one of the most important days on its calendar.

It is as Murdoch Day hits the town centre, in honour of their most famous citizen.

William Murdoch pioneered the use of steam engines in our tin mines.

He is also famous for inventing gas lighting.

Redruth town Mayor, Will Tremaine, tells us what to expect. He said: "All the children parade up the main street with artwork, various schools will be doing dances, then throughout the day you have got various band playing, a lot of stalls, it's just entertainment all round.

"It's an opportunity for all of Redruth to bond together, it brings the whole community together, all the schools get involved, it raises the historic value of Redruth, but it's generally just a time for the community to bond and get everybody feeling proud of Redruth."
