Hundreds of children, musicians and dancers have been celebrating St Piran's Day in Cornwall.
Piran is said to have come ashore at Perranporth and became the patron saint of tin miners after discovering the metal which formed the basis for a whole Cornish industry.
Last night hundreds of people marched through the streets of Perranporth - the parade from the sea is traditionally held on the nearest Friday to the patron day.
Tonight MPs and business leaders are showcasing Cornwall at an exhibition called 'Cornwall Calling' in the Tate Great Britain. It aims to highlight the business and investment opportunities in the Duchy.
