Whats on in 2020

Share with friends & family

In 2020 Truro will be one of the Cornish towns that will host the tour of Britain cycle race in September. Many favourite events will be back including St Piran's Day Celebrations which happens to fall on World book and we'll be talking all things books. Keep an eye on our social channels for more info.

It will also be easier to get to Truro with some new bus time table changes from April. Improved services from St Mawes, Bude & Bodmin as well as a service to Newquay Cornwall Airport to Truro train station. 

With the Hall for Cornwall closed until the end of the year we hope to build on the  success of Coppice street theatre in 2019 with plans for more street theatre.

 We hope to also see  the return of the antiques fairs on Lemon Quay on Wednesdays in August  and  a brand new market as well as the well loved weekly Truro Farmers Market. 

Keep an eye out on our social media - @visittruro for up to date information.
