The Great Cornish Food Festival

Its that time again, The Great Cornish Food Festival is back at the Lemon Quay in Truro. Starting on Thursday 22nd September 2017 and running for three days. Cornwall does have its fair share of food festivals, so why is this one so special? It really showcases the best of Cornish food, from the little guy to the brands we love. 40,000 people come every year to the 70 stands for a true taste of our fair county.


Nathan Outlaw, whose restaurant has been newly named the best in the UK by the Good Food Guide, will be making his 13th appearance. Expect delicious dishes and demonstrations from local business, chefs, mixologists and producers all on the three stages. You can learn to mix the perfect breakfast martini or crimp a pasty - the proper way. There's enough to fill a day with street food, beers and cosy hot drinks. Pick up a new skill or just enjoy wondering the stalls and see the breadth of what Cornwall has to offer. The festival boasts that all the produce on sale is guarant…

Cornish Light

As the evenings are drawing in and the light is fading, I thought I'd draw to your attention an exhibition soon to be finishing at the Newlyn Art Gallery. 'A Certain Kind of Light' concludes on the 23rd of September 2017 and has been showcasing Cornwall's relationship with light from the 1950s and 60s to the present day.



Six decades of light is celebrated in this major exhibition with artists such as Anish Kapoor, Julian Opie, Roger Ackling and Peter Lanyon. The gallery has been looking at how fifteen artists have responded to light with paintings, sculpture, photography and installations all on display.


To mark 10 years of The Exchange being open, artist Peter Freeman has reprogrammed his installation 'Lightwave' which wraps the building in light for the occasion. The light in Cornwall has always been a draw, and it is fascinating to see how varied these artists responses are. Find out more at their website here.
