Trevithick Day celebration in Camborne

- Fri 04 May 2018

It’s the day of the year when local engineering genius and inventor Richard Trevithick (1771-1833) gets the recognition he deserves and Camborne celebrates its importance as a major player in Cornwall’s former mining industry. Lots of spluttering steam engines, singing, dancing and parades.

So what happens? All over the town of Camborne the streets play host to local trade stalls, choirs, brass bands, clowns to entertain the kids, buskers, musicians and dancers including hundreds of children from local schools traditionally dressed as traditional Bal Maidens and Miners, along with live theatre, and an impressive display and celebratory convoy of vintage vehicles, model exhibitions and fairground rides making it a great day out for the whole family.

Our team in Camborne ran a fundraising stall for Cornwall Air Ambulance, helping them continue their vital lifesaving work throughout the Duchy. There was a children's treasure hunt as well as a 'guess the house price' for the adults, giving them a chance to win a magnum of prosecco. The delighted winners of this were Mr & Mrs Medlyn of Goongumpas, St Day.

Nick Jewell, Branch Manager of Bradleys Camborne said "Trevithick Day goes to further demonstrate the importance of businesses being a part of their local community, here at Bradleys we understand this and love partaking in days like today as well as raising funds for very worthy causes".
