Welcome to Truro

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to the wonderful owners of the newly opened Midtown Deli & Cafe on King Street.

What a transformation that unit has made in just a few short weeks, every time we have walked past there has been a bustle of activity; painting, sanding and sawing behind a collage of newspaper.

This morning the Midtown Deli & Cafe opened its doors to the public and we can honestly say that it looks absolutely stunning! Predominantly a classy white with splashes of reds, yellows and blues the interior exudes calm and relaxation. The large window frontage allows for an unobstructed view from the window seats (who doesn’t love a bit of people watching?), and you can imagine yourself settling down with a nice hot mug of coffee and a deliciously thick handmade wedge of a sandwich! Their upstairs seating area will be opening tomorrow (Wednesday 30 May), and we’re sure that will look and feel just as fabulous.

Here are a few snaps that we took on our visit:

(We love, love, LOVE this flooring! Definitely something we haven’t seen before, though we were told it was a bit of a nightmare to lay – we don’t doubt it!)

If you’re looking for somewhere new to try for a relaxed lunch or something on the go then make sure you visit the Midtown Deli & Cafe! Take a look at their Facebook page for all their latest news 🙂



Thank you, and good night

It’s the Tuesday after the Easter Bank Holiday and what a weekend it has been! Truro Festival went out with a bang with an action-packed weekend of events; B-Side at The Quayside, Backbeat Soundsystem and the Easter Sunday Party. Hundreds of people came out to each event, despite the not so great weather, and had a fantastic time. We have the pictures to prove it ;)!

We, at Totally Truro, would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone that has been a part of Truro Festival 2014. From those of you behind the scenes making sure that everything ran smoothly to those of you that turned up to each event and made the festival what it was. We really cannot wait until next year now, and if you’re an early bird and are interested in taking part then get in contact with us!

Take a look at our Facebook page for all the photos, and get tagging if you see anyone that you know! In the mean time here are a few of our favourites:

Blackboards & baby wipes

What a fantastic first week of Truro Festival 2014. We couldn’t have asked for a better turn out to all of our events and we hope that you had as much fun as we did! Now we’re well on our way into the second (and final *tears*) week of Truro Festival 2014, and there are still so many things for you to do!

As ever everything is GO!GO!GO! in our office. Yesterday morning was spent readying our chalkboard a-frames for the week ahead, using copious amounts of baby wipes and kitchen roll! Trying to get the white pen off the black background was not as easy as first thought; que arm cramps, chalky white hands and the very strong scent of baby wipes lingering around us for the rest of the day. That said it was a fantastic workout for our arms, they’re definitely looking more toned today ;). Charla has done a brilliant job making our Truro Festival information boards look pretty and we hope you like them too!


As you may or may not have noticed, over the weekend, we’ve used our expertise in feng shui to completely turn the Truro Festival marquee around – literally. The marquee entrance is now on the end facing the Hub Box. We’ve also had a little jig around with the layout inside and we hope you’ll agree it feels much better!


(Thank you to the boys in the photo putting up the Truro Festival banner for us).

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter where we’ll be keeping you up to date with all the events as and when they happen. If you have any photos of your experience at Truro Festival please share with us! We hope you have a good week :).

Monday, Monday

After a brilliant launch weekend, Truro Festival 2014 is now full steam ahead as the first week of half-term commences and locals and visitors from further afield brave the damp weather in search of something fun to do!

We kicked off this morning with film and print making workshops in the marquee on Lemon Quay from 10am and what a turn out. The creative juices were most definitely flowing as participants set to work decked out in aprons and rather fetching blue gloves making prints with Travelogue Kernow – we can’t wait to see the finished products!

Those interested in film making and all things camera, were seen braving the elements and making short films around Truro. I was lucky enough to catch up with one group, and when asked what their film was about they told me it was going to be a thrilling drama about a man and his ice cream! I have to say his ice cream did look pretty extraordinary:



All films made today will be showed at a special premiere night at The Plaza Cinema Truro on Monday 14th at 6pm (don’t forget to get your tickets 01872 272894)

We were also treated to some fantastic dance performances by local dance groups, followed by a dance workshop!

There is still plenty going on this afternoon; more film making and dance workshops, fun, games and story telling with the Story Republic on Kenwyn Street and Fiddler on the Roof this evening at the Hall for Cornwall. Phew!
