Bodmin Riding and Heritage Weekend – 5th – 7th July
The festival now taking place over three days from Friday 5th July to Sunday 7th with entertainment and fun for all ages.
Friday 5th or Feast Day follows the tradition of hanging of the Mayor from the story of Nicolas Bowyer, Mayor of Bodmin, hanged in 1549 for his part in the Prayer Book Rebellion. Far from being afraid of his execution the Mayor threw a feast. With entertainment and excellent food throughout the day all without risk of execution!
