Bodmin Town  Council have yet to promote the detailed arrangements for this day.   I understand that a BTC sub-committee are still making plans !    Part of the 2 days of festivities is believed to be a collection of Local Organisations Stands and Tents etc. on Narissa Lawn  (Priory Lawn), as a 'Community Village'   Bodmin Rotary will be amongst these. Please come and see us.

Bodmin Town Council have issued the posters below, for the Two - Day Festival in the town !
