Calling all dance enthusiasts – save the date for Helston Flora day!

If you are planning to be in Cornwall on 6th May 2017, it’s worth a trip to see – or take part in Helston Flora Day.

As the town clock strikes midday, the elegant dance leaves the Guildhall – the men dressed in top hats and tails escorting their beautifully dressed ladies in the processional dance, accompanied by the Helston Town Band who play the traditional tune.

The band and dancers process around the four mile route, with a rhythm and beat that comes and goes throughout the day.  The streets of Helston echo to the sounds of enjoyment and happiness in celebration of a tradition that is steeped in history and receives such support and enthusiasm. Helston family members and friends will travel the world to be in the town for Flora Day.

St Piran’s Day – 5th March

 

St Piran’s Day started as a holiday celebrated by the Cornish Tin miners. Since the late 19th and early 20th Century, Celtic revivalists sought to provide the people of Cornwall with a national day similar to those observed in other nations.

Since the 1950s, the celebration has become increasingly observed and since the start of the 21st century almost every Cornish community holds some sort of celebration to mark the event. Saint Piran’s Flag is also seen flying throughout Cornwall on this day with walks and gatherings through Cornwall from Bude to Penznce,
