Murdoch Day
  • Overview
  • More Info
Murdoch Day is Redruth’s big day and really gets right to the heart of what the town is all about – its heritage, history, industry, but most of all community. To be held on Saturday 16th June 2018 (TBC) the day celebrates pioneering inventor William Murdoch, who was the first to use gas lights indoors at his home in Cross Street.
The highlight of the day for many Is the parade by the town’s young people. Local schools and community groups from the area are due to take part in the well-supported morning procession which winds its way through the town’s streets from 10am. Alongside a full line-up of live music at the main stage in Green Lane, the town centre will also host a street market, “Olde Tyme Fair”, steam engines, classic cars, The Murdoch Flyer, art installations, exhibitions and community dance groups.
