AWARDS NIGHT IN TRURO CATHEDRAL

1st November is the 'night of the year' for the cream of the Cornish Tourism Industry, with approx 400 Finalists and Sponsors gathering for what will be the biggest ever Cornwall Tourism Awards occasion.

Finalists and Sponsors are receiving detailed communications about the evening, with more to follow once final details are confirmed, but we are now pleased to share with you the evening's set menu as below.

Other menu options are only available to those who advise us before Wednesday 24 October.  All dietary requests should be made as part of the booking or, if added later, by email to awards@services4tourism.co.uk

Because we are using outside caterers, with very limited facilities on site, we are unable to offer alternative menu choices to anyone who does not advise us before 24 October.  Please book HERE

TIMINGS

The evening starts at 6.15 pm (6pm for sponsors) when the Cathedral doors will open. We expect formalities to end by 11pm, with networking and socialiszing continuing thereafter.  Ticket holders have been advised of more detail.

WEATHER, TEMPERATURE AND COATS

The current forecast for Thursday is for a dry, mild evening with temperatures around 12 degrees. The Cathedral has efficient heating, but is a huge space so can take time to adjust to external temperature variations. There is no secure Cloakroom, but will be a coat rail available for guest use at owners' risk.  Guests may prefer to leave coats behind, or bring small items only.

DROP OFF AND PARKING

You probably know Truro well and will have your own plans, but our overall advice is to drop passengers off at the main Cathedral doors on High Cross (use postcode TR1 2AF) then park at one of the main Truro car parks, making sure that it is not one that gets locked at 8 or 9pm:

  • The nearest parking is on Old Bridge Street, TR1 2AH, though places here are limited.  Parking here is FREE after 5pm and it is not locked overnight.
  • Next nearest is the NCP High Cross multi storey at TR1 1DQ, though this will cost you £5.50 and there are height restrictions.
  • A good option is Moorfield at TR1 2QD , FREE after 4pm – but make sure you park in the Outdoor parking area as the indoor decks get locked at 8pm.
  • There is also Garras Wharf next to Tesco at TR1 2TN – slightly further away but FREE after 4pm.

You could of course take the train to Truro station or bus to Truro bus station.
