It's 'Pasty Day' at the Redruth Cornwall Pasty Festival
8:00am Saturday 22nd September 2012 in News
A chance to sample the best of Cornish pasties will be on offer today as the Cornish Pasty Festival in Redruth enters its second day.
After the street theatre shennanigans on Friday – which re-enacted the true story of the Redruth man forced to sell his wife to fund emigration to foreign lands where mining was booming, Saturday is 'Pasty Day'.
Visitors can enjoy the high-quality Cornish food and drink market in the town centre, and discover how many different pasty fillings there are.
Children can take part in the ‘make your own’ pasty activity in the town centre. At the Fairfield (park next to the town centre) – enjoy live entertainment from Redruth Radio, join in the mass picnic and get your well-earned refreshments form the beer tent.
On Sunday join the morning walk around mining heritage sites, starting at Basset Stamp House at 10am.
