St Piran's Day has been celebrated across Cornwall with a number of parades and open-air plays in honour of the patron saint of tin miners.

One of the highlights is the open-air play on Perran Sands, Perranporth, which depicts St Piran's arrival from Ireland.

The event is attended by hundreds of people every year and is considered a major event in Cornwall.

Here are some of the best photos of the day provided by Zak Stanley at BBC Radio Cornwall.
