Truro Cathedral and its choir have been significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.  The music department has worked hard to keep up the choral tradition throughout the lockdowns and the choir has been unable to perform any of its concerts this year, losing considerable revenue. This Christmas Festival service is free to attend but we would be grateful for any donation. A suggested amount would be £5-£20, but any donation that you could make will help.  Thank you for your support. You can donate online via our JustGiving page.
