Roger Miners returns to The Great Hall

On Saturday 19th December at our Great Hall in Truro, Christmas will be coming to town. Our favourite local pianist Roger Miners will be dusting off the festive songbook and performing his renditions of all your favourite carols and Christmas tunes. Sing-a-long, soak up the merry atmosphere and sip on a warming glass of mulled wine.

Meanwhile, our pastry chef Matt will be busy behind the scenes whisking up a dreamy festive tower of treats. Expect traditional flavours, winter-inspired desserts and almost too-good-to-eat sweet masterpieces.

Roger Miners will be performing at 2pm – 3pm and 3:30pm – 4:30pm.
