Richard Trevithick’s inventions transformed not just the Cornish mining industry but the global one. He’s a local hero in Camborne and he’s toasted in April every year. On Saturday 27 April 2024, expect the whole town to pay tribute to this great man with a massive steam engine parade, local choir performances, buskers, street food, entertainers, special stalls, a fairground, historical exhibitions, stationary engines, competitions, vintage buses, dances and, of course, the Camborne Town Band in action. Up to 30,000 people should be in town. Will you?
