13:00 - Todays concert, by The Good Afternoon Choirs from Bath and Bristol, marks the United Nations International Day of Peace and is part of a varied three day (20, 21 & 22 September) programme across Truro where people come together to sing, speak and pray for peace. The Choirs are dedicating part of their programme to World Peace Day and “One Day One Choir”.
The United Nations first established the 21st September as the International Day of Peace in 1981, and declared it as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations. The theme for World Peace Day 2019 is “Climate Action for Peace” and the aim is to draw attention to the importance of combating climate change as a way to protect and promote peace throughout the world.
Entry is free with a retiring collection taken for Cornwall Hospice Care
