The Christmas offer is still a top priority for many businesses so the BID is working to improve and manage the ‘all-round’ Christmas offer including the development of more traditional markets and influence a coordinated event programme.
We are now delivering the event management for the annual Reindeer Parade in partnership with Truro City Council and Visit Truro.
The BID funds, maintains and installs the Christmas lighting scheme each year, and are looking to enhance the spectacle with new schemes and integrated digital projections.

Support for the City of Lights event team to deliver this annual event that attracts circa 30,000 visitors and kick-starts Christmas in Truro.
