City of Lights is a Community Interest Company (not for profit) and is managed by individuals, supporters and partner organisations who give their time and energy to make it happen.  Join us and help make it happen by donating below! The partners who deliver City of Lights are: Mackerel Sky Events, Totally Truro, Kernow Education Arts Partnership, Truro City Council and Truro School of Samba.

We could not make this event happen without the support of funders and sponsors. We would like to thank all our commissioning partners, funders and sponsors from previous years.  



Support for 2018 



The event attracts an audience of 30,000 people from across Cornwall, UK and across the world

We make a difference, working with over 700 school children members of the community each year

For every £1 spent on the event, a further £9 is spent in the local economy on the night

We have a huge following on social media through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Your business and team could join the parade - what's not to love about that!


If you would like to get involved for 2018, there are various levels through which you can support this fantastic community event from being a Commissioning Partner through to providing us with a service that we need! Please get in touch with Charlotte Davis  for more information and to discuss options.
