Murdoch Day, Redruth

June 15

Each year Redruth celebrates its most famous citizen, inventor William Murdoch (1754 – 1839) when the town is packed with events and entertainment throughout the day for the whole family. Murdoch, although not born in Cornwall, is revered locally as a mechanical genius who improved the efficiency of steam engines in Cornwall’s tin mines. He was also a pioneer of gas lighting and famed for building Britain’s first working model of a steam carriage which he demonstrated in and around Redruth in 1784.

For one day only, events include a children’s dance and art procession, all day music and entertainment, a street market with more than fifty stalls, an old time fair, locally themed exhibitions and a variety of live concerts and other events dotted round the town. Things kick off from 10am and all of the events are completely free!
