Cornish celebrations
St. Piran's Day
Every year, on fifth of March, the people of Perranporth get together to honour their patron saint - St. Piran. Adults and children join in acting out the story of the saint. All the town folk gather around at the sand dunes and enjoy the delightful show.

Lowender Peran
In October, every year, Perranporth celebrates the colourful Celtic festival - Lowender Peran. Cornwall's rich culture and heritage is showcased and enjoyed. Music, dance, songs, language, clothes, concerts, food and everything Cornish is exhibited and savoured. The splendour and extravagance of this Celtic carnival has to be seen to be believed.

History and Heritage
This erstwhile tin-mining village takes pride in its history and heritage.

St.Piran's Church
The name 'Perranporth' is a Cornish for "St. Piran's Cove". St. Piran's church, dating back to the seventh century, was discovered under the sand-dunes. Although it was reburied to protect its structure, the memorial stone marking it, is an important piece of the town's heritage.

Piran Round
In the north-east part of the hamlet, Piran Round, an Iron-Age camp-site is present. The locals believe that its amphitheatre was used to stage plays and conduct games.

The Millennium Sun-dial
Although a rather recent construction, it occupies a place of pride. The huge sun-dial is set atop a giant cliff, and even tells Cornish time!
