Tonight, Lionel, Truro's Town Crier will be leading a 1 minute silence at 7pm on Boscawen Street, where Christmas Lights will be dimmed to remember those who have lost their lives to Covid-19.
We have the Mayor's Carol Services accompanied by Salvation Army Brass Band up at High Cross from 6pm playing our favourite Christmas Carols, led by Dean the Very Reverend Roger Bush. A joint initiative between Truro City Council and Truro Cathedral. 'A little taste of real Christmas - Nadelik Lowen' - Mayor of Truro, Bert Biscoe
The City Centre Christmas Lights will be illuminating Truro and the main shopping streets will be closed to traffic until 9pm to give you space to shop, eat and drink.
Look out for some street entertainment and music to get you into the Christmas spirit, including walkabout performances from Swamp Circus dressed up as winter festive characters and local Brass Bands.
To add to the atmosphere, large visuals will be projected for the third year in a row on the TUI building and on the Arts Café in River Street. This week the content includes contributions from local dance groups from Hall for Cornwall Youth Dance Company (Juniors and Seniors), Jason Thomas Performing Arts, All Boys Dance filmed by Tyller A Nerth and Cornwall Dance School filmed by Ellie Swann.
The street entertainment, traffic-free shopping streets for Wednesday evenings and large-scale projectors, have been funded by Truro BID.
The Truro Park and Ride will be FREE from 4pm on all late night shopping evenings as well as Cornwall Council Car Parks (after 5pm short stay)
