The Pageant



The Pageant

The Bolster Pageant is held on the stunning cliffside at Chapel Porth beach, just outside of St Agnes. It starts at 4.30 in the afternoon, but please bear in mind that it may take some time to walk there as limited parking is available. The car park at the top of the hill will be open for parking, or alternative sites are available on the road towards the beacon.

The pageant is about 45 minutes long and features life sized puppet characters such as the Mayor, Sir Constantine and Mrs Bolster. The Bolster drum band, musicians and dancers will be performing in the National trust carpark at the beach afterwards, and refreshments are available from Robin’s cafe.
