Truro City of Lights

The City of Lights is a vividly creative celebration incorporating art, music, dance and, as its name suggests, light. The event features a dazzling procession of giant handmade withy and tissue lanterns floating through the streets carried by professional artists accompanied by a host of smaller lanterns carried by Cornish school children and local community and youth groups. Every year the procession has a different theme and is escorted by music and dance including samba, brass bands and pipes and drums.

The Truro City of Lights parade will take place on Wednesday 21st November 2018 at 7pm.
