On Saturday the 2nd of June there will be several events on Lemon Quay to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Totally Truro, The Hall for Cornwall, Truro City Council and Truro Farmers Market will be arranging these fun filled events, including a street party lunch, a high tea and live entertainment to be enjoyed by all.
Take pleasure in the atmosphere of bunting decorations, Victoria sponges and cucumber sandwiches, along with the clinking of china tea cups! I am sure the odd glass of Pimm’s, strawberries and all things regal will go down a treat – whilst we celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
