Pasty Festival

Pasties Button

Redruth holds its first ever Pasty Festival.

The three day free event includes the town's traditional miners' march and remembrance service.

But this year there will be live music, stalls and the chance to make your own oggy.  

Mayor Judy Robinson says it is a double win:

"One, the community will come along, have a great day, lift their spirits and feel really involved. On the other side, from the heritage point of view, again, good news for Redruth. It's putting us on the map in a really positive light.

"This year is a pilot. We have got everything crossed but I feel that the reaction I've had and the response I've had is hugely positive. Just wish us luck with the weather and everything going well but I think the main thing is ... let's have a fun day."
