The Town Hall is full of activity today as Launceston celebrate their county's patron Saint, St Piran.

The event aims to "celebrate all things Cornish", and with plenty on offer throughout the day locals are sure of a good time.

At 11.30am there was a walkaround the town using drawing as a tool for exploring the ancient capital with Karen Howse. Karen will be in the hall until 3pm for those wishing to draw, add colour and create.

Those wishing to learn more about this county's ancient tongue, there are plenty of Cornish language activities to join —  try out some word searches, colour in and learn more about the Cornish language from Pat Tremain and Sarah Cooke.

Pasties have been distributed but for those staying late before meeting in the Castle at 6pm, there will be self-service hot refreshments.

One of the highlights of the event will be the special dance sessions being held at 2pm. The Scoots Kernow and folk duo Morvran are starting at 2pm for two 45 min sessions. A spokesperson said "Here's your chance to learn the new 'Lanson Dance'."
