Truro Festival 2016
The city’s annual cultural festival, which is funded and delivered by Totally Truro Business Improvement District (BID) features music, art, exhibitions, theatre, dance, comedy, film, literature and photography.
The literary content of the festival also grows each year. For 2016, The Story Republic began to ignite the imagination through speakeasies for young writers, wordsmith sessions and more.
This year was the launch of a three-year project for Truro Festival focusing on a forgotten Truronian from the 18th century. In his day, Samuel Foote was the first stand-up comedian and known as the funniest man in London. He was a Cornishman with a larger-than-life personality, who wowed audiences at his tea parties in the fashionable coffee houses of Covent Garden. The festival produced educational projects and installations re-establishing Foote as a celebrated Cornishman in his hometown.
