The lanterns might be sleeping, but the City of Lights Team are all systems go. Planning, fundraising and organising has already commenced for Truro’s lantern parade in November 2018.

This is where the reigns are handed over to the community. They need your help! Would you like to help raise money and get involved in their events throughout the year. You will find lantern workshops and buckets being rattled at many events this year, including ROK 5k, Truro Day, Samba Sunday and many more. Volunteering can be adhoc or could be set up as a placement for those seeking a more structured opportunity to support professional development. To sign up, please click on the link at

Do you think you have what it takes to join the City of Lights Board? Each year, the lantern parade team explore ways to strengthen their organisation and they would like to open up an invitation to new members. Have you got an interest and experience in any of the following sectors: business, culture, community, volunteering, fundraising, event management. To find out more please contact

Are you a local business? Have you ever considered the benefit of being associated with one of Cornwall’s largest outdoor events, attracting an audience of 30,000 people who travel from across the county, UK and some from across the world? Sponsorship packages are available ranging from £100 to £1,500. Full details of packages are available.

And last but not least, each year the lantern artists take over a space where they create the staggeringly incredible lanterns. This year, the team is trying to find a new space. Do you know of any large warehouses, units or barns which could be used to make large lanterns in? Please contact City of Lights with any suggestions.

Keep posted for future updates and a big thank you for your support. For all enquiries, please contact or message via Facebook.
