Christmas in Truro

Your ultimate guide to all things Christmas over the festive season

Enjoy the Magic of Christmas in Truro 2014

Christmas in Truro is a truly unique and enjoyable experience. This vibrant city really comes alive during the festive season with a wonderful mix of events and Christmas shopping. Christmas in Truro 2013 was a truly fantastic experience - we are looking forward to December 2014!

Every year, the 'City of Lights' procession and Christmas lights switch-on marks the start of our Christmas festivities. 


Shops throughout the city open until 9pm every Wednesday for the last late night shopping, and the streets will be filled with festive market stalls, entertainers, brass bands and carol singers, all rounded off with the festive smell of mulled wine and hot chestnuts! Truro's cafes, bars and restaurants also open their doors to hungry shoppers and festive merry makers alike, with many offering special deals on their delicious food and drink menus.



The Christmas Truro pocket guide is printed every year to keep you informed of everything you need to know about Christmas in Truro. It includes an event calendar for the whole of December, a street by street shopping directory and comprehensive information on travelling to Truro.

Late Night Shopping - 26 Nov, 3 Dec, 10 Dec and 17 Dec
