St. Piran’s Day celebrations in Truro

Living in these meager times cannot be easy, however an excellent excuse to enjoy ourselves has arisen with the St. Piran’s day celebrations in Truro – our great little city.  On Saturday the 5th of March there will be the St. Piran’s marquee, with items Made in Cornwall.

From 10am until 12noon, there will be a children’s workshop with Clare Summerson of ARTiCulate.  A morning of craft, to make a symbol to carry in the Grand Parade.  It is a free event, although you need to book via email  tic@truro.gov.uk or call The Tourist Information Office 01872 274555.

There will be Cornish performers in the marquee from 1-4pm and the line up looks exciting!
