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!
