Falmouth-cornish holiday cottages-42

Falmouth has always been an arty place, and since the expansion of the School of Art to Falmouth University the town is alive with creativity.

There are many ways to get involved whilst down on holiday, with local markets selling homemade items and an abundance of independent shops selling locally crafted goods. The high street also hosts many art galleries, selling small cheaper prints to extravagant paintings and pottery.

Take a trip to the old cinema ‘The Poly’ in the center of town, with weekly changing exhibitions and evening events from shows to art house films and new to 2014 their very own tearoom upstairs. The building itself is very impressive with high ceilings and beautiful features, with ever changing exhibitions you never know what you may find!

The Tempest by Miracle Theatre

July 19, 2014 No Comments

photo 1 We went along to see Miracle Theatre’s latest touring production of The Tempest. We caught up with it in Falmouth in Gyllyngdune Gardens (near Princess Pavillions). It was brilliant, as two people who don’t know much about Shakespeare plays we found it really enjoyable. A ‘shaken and stirred’ version of the play, it always amazes me when such a small set and so few actors can keep you entertained for hours.

The production is touring the south west this summer and there’s plenty of opportunities to catch up with it. I am already planning on taking my family at the end of August.
