Fun will be the theme for Truro city centre on Saturday 13 April as many businesses and organisations make children and young people their focus with free activities, have-a-go sessions and great offers for ‘Children’s Day’.

Lemon Quay will be a hive of activity with kids rides, street performers, have-a-go sessions in dance and yoga, stalls and other entertainment including mountain bike athlete Andrei Burton. There will also be some street performers popping-up around Truro on the day.
