Two stonemasons in Penryn (one of them a Breton) are putting the finishing touches to a giant statue of St Piran which will be sailed to Brittany to join 99 other giant saints. St Piran, measuring 3.7 metres tall and made from Cornish granite, will be the 100th saint in the group.
On the 5th May, there will be a send-off celebration in Falmouth.
Come and celebrate the departure of St Piran from Mabe to Falmouth (via Penryn) with Clinker the steam engine, before he sails away to Vallée des Saints in Brittany aboard an old wooden sailing boat. Enjoy a Breton and Cornish market with pancakes, ales and wine, exhibitions, cruises and music.
