St Austell Torchlight Carnival
Marking the beginning of winter, a one day celebration in the china clay capital of Cornwall.
St. Austell comes alive for the celebrations with a whole day of entertainment throughout the town, with live bands, stalls, music and dance and as it gets darker, the tremendous spectacle of the Torchlight Carnival parades through the town.
Carnival entries assemble for judging from 4.30 pm at John Keay House and the procession moves off at 6pm, making its way down through the town to the One Stop Shop for presentation of prizes. The carnival attracts over 1000 people to join in the procession and continues to get be bigger, brighter and better every year. Spectacular lanterns, samba bands and colourful floats make this a day to remember.
