The FIRE & STEAM arts and heritage project from Wadebridge Creative Hub celebrates the unique railway heritage of Wadebridge & Bodmin in North Cornwall. A host of schools & community engagements, along with twin inclusive, illuminated, bicycle-based BikeLights events, form a key part of the project’s themed creative community celebratory activities, with processions and special finale events at dusk in Wadebridge on Saturday 12 and Bodmin on Sunday 13 October 2019. The towns, linked historically by the old railway line (now the Camel Trail cycle path), will boast a host of artist and community creations, including the Coasters Camel – a cycling ‘Light Railway’ that hopes to follow in the footsteps of the first steam locomotive along the old line, as well as participating in each processive event. The wider ongoing project offers further exciting heritage visits, creative activities and engagements for schools and community groups, while also creating new public assets to help share this unique heritage with wider audiences, working with a range of partners.
