Up to forty thousand people are expected in Penzance for Mazey Day.

It is the highlight of Golowan, a week-long festival which celebrates midsummer.

It dates back to the 19th century and was revived 24 years ago.

Now it includes parades, live music, street entertainment and stalls.

Festival Director Tracey Bower says this year's theme is Golowan Goes Global: "Local people and visitors will be able to pop in to a pop up shop in Penzance and if they'd like to tell us their family history about people who have moved away, or if they'd like help tracing their ancestors, there will be people in Penzance who will be able to help them do that.

"The modern day Golowan is as strong as ever and growing. it's the biggest event for Penzance, it involved over twenty schools and community groups and everyone seems to take part in one way or another and enjoys it."
