Truro Cathedral, a great place to visit for those staying at our Fowey accommodation

The city of Truro's annual festival will take place from April 2-9 this year and will bring a hive of creative and cultural activities to the city, celebrating the best and brightest of Cornwall culture.



Charla Symons, the organiser for the Truro Festival said, "Inspired by the artistic passion of businesses and people in and around Truro, this family festival is brimming with events to entertain, entice and excite."

There will be a wide variety of activities to take part in, from arts and craft workshops, to exhibitions, literary seminars and live music, dance, comedy and theatre performances. There will always be something to whet your cultural appetite.

2016 also welcomes a project the festival will run over the next two years too, about Samuel Foote. Events across the festival will focus on the Truronian, who was a stand-up comedian from the 18th century, and very popular in London. He entertained audiences at the coffee houses of Covent Garden with his larger-than-life personality.

The main hub will be a marquee on Lemon Quay, open from 10am-4pm everyday with art workshops featuring a variety of artists working in different style. Other events will take place across the city; in Truro Library, Truro Cathedral, Truro Arts Shop, Waterstones, The Royal Cornwall Museum and Hall for Cornwall.

For any one staying at The Cormorant, the best Fowey accommodation available, the Truro Festival will inevitably be a fantastic day out, giving you a chance to celebrate Cornwall culture and life.
