Enjoy a cultural experience in Our Great Little City

Whilst visiting us, why not immerse yourself in Cornish culture? Tuck into a delicious Cornish delicacy at one of the city’s many eateries, discover our vast history with a range of experiences, or celebrate the Cornish shakers and makers with a visit to our galleries or art and craft shops.

Throughout the year, many cultural events take place in the city, most notably the St Piran’s Day celebrations that take place each March, which feature a parade and the singing of Cornish songs, and at 9pm the county joins in the Trelawny Shout.
