Steaming ahead to our second weekend!
Gosh, time flies when you’re opening a new cultural playground to the world! We're nearly one week old and super busy preparing for events happening at Heartlands this weekend.
On Saturday (28 April) we welcome the Heart of Cornwall Fayre to our fabulous Chi an Bobel at Heartlands. From 10am to 5pm, come along and experience a plethora of local craft makers and businesses as well as crafts for the kids and a professional face painter. With a dedicated refreshments area, there’s time to browse the goods on offer in a relaxing environment. The profits from the organisation of this event will be donated to the Phoenix Stroke Appeal – a very worthy cause.
On Sunday, it’s vintage car time! The Cornish Vintage Car Society will descend on Heartlands with a heady mix of automobiles from the past. Take a wander round these beautiful vehicles and get caught up in the fun and camaraderie with the owners. Discover them in the market square of Heartlands in the shadow of our awe-inspiring engine house from 10.30am onwards. Both events are FREE, but car parking charges apply.
And don’t forget, this Saturday Camborne celebrates the great man of steam – Richard Trevithick! Trevithick Day takes place on Saturday 28 April and is a really brilliant event for the whole family with Steam Engines, local school children in the Bal Maidens and Miners Dance led by Camborne Town Band, street entertainers, fairground rides, market stalls and much much more.
Another event in Camborne this Sunday is the Open Day at King Edward Mine. If you’ve never been to this excellent little attraction before, I’d thoroughly recommend it. Run by a very knowledgeable and entertaining set of volunteers, there really is something for all the family and with music and entertainment too, well if you’ve not popped in for a look by the end of Sunday, I’ll be asking why!
Have a lovely weekend.
