The Cornish Pirates will be holding their first-ever St Piran’s Festival, in partnership with Coastline Housing on Sunday March 8 at the Camborne Recreation Ground.
The event will see the Cornish Pirates match against Bedford Blues become part of a Festival that will celebrate all that is good about Cornwall.
Cornish Pirates will be taking over Camborne Park, which will host a Cornish Fayre with activities and entertainment for the whole family.
As well as creating a massive crowd for the National League One game, the Cornish Pirates are hoping the St Piran’s Festival will become a very successful annual event.
Pirates’ marketing manager Rob McEvoy said: “As Cornwall’s premier rugby club, we want the people of Cornwall to as proud of the club as they are of Cornwall. The event we have put together will be a fantastic family day out, and we know the families of Cornwall love a good fun family day out, topped off with some exciting rugby.”
Lucy Cox, neighbourhood and involvement manager for Coastline Housing, said: “Coastline Housing are delighted to be supporting the St Piran’s Festival, as we think it will be a fantastic day, and just what our residents will really enjoy. By sponsoring the event, we have a number of free tickets for our residents, and we know that they will grasp the opportunity to have a fantastic family day out.”
In addition, Coastline Housing have 1,000 tickets for local residents, who will hopefully come along and experience the great family day out.
