A few of our favourite things in October

October is one of our favourite months at Trevessa. From the beautiful autumnal colours of the leaves to the fresh frosty starts in the morning, from the wild, windy walks on the beach, to cosying up by the woodburner in the house, all these little moments are such a tonic, especially during these particularly turbulent and relentless times. 

We’ve got some last minute availability during half term next week and over the coming weeks in November.

Here are a few of our favourite things to do this month in Cornwall. Make sure you check opening times and follow any restrictions or local advice.

Scaryland at Dairyland

Pop along for a fright to Dairyland where you visit Scaryland and Pat a Pet, visit the Pumpkin Patch and take part in some creepy crafts.

Horrible Histories Live at the Minack

A fantastically entertaining show delving into the Horrible History of Britain at the Minack. Be sure to book your tickets in advance to grab a seat.

Halloween at the Eden Project

From the story audio trail to meeting some bewitching birds, from the spooky plant trail to taking a spin on the ice rink, head to the Eden Project for some half term fun this October. 

Halloween at Pendennis Castle 

Celebrate Halloween at Pendennis Castle from 24th October – 1st November and join in their spooky trail to solve the clues and listen to some scary tales. 

Rogue Theatre

If you go down to Tehidy Woods this month, you’ll be in for a spooky surprise. The wonderful Rogue Theatre Company has created a very special Dead of Night Dis-Dance performance. Taking place from 23rd October – 1st November.

Heligan Harvest

Following thirty years since the discovery of the Lost Gardens, there will be displays of the harvest this year as well as photographs of harvests past. Young and old will also get the opportunity to jump in muddy puddles too.

A few of our favourite things in September

The Cornish weather has certainly shown its wild side these past few weeks and although the summer sun has started to retreat and the leaves have begun to turn, there’s still a wealth of things to do and enjoy in Cornwall this month.

A Different Way of Seeing

At the Falmouth Art Gallery there is a wonderful exhibition called A Different Way of Seeing that explores the notion that everyone experiences art differently. 

Open Studios Cornwall

Over this week 29th August – 6th September, over 200 studios across Cornwall will open their doors with special social distancing measures in place. From painters to potters, from illustrators to textile artists, you can take a peek behind the studio doors of an array of artists and makers across Cornwall. 

Hippo Campus | Where we learn

This exhibition explores where, how and from whom we learn. Bringing together a range of artists and spanning many mediums it looks at alternative learning, unschooling and much more. The exhibition runs until 19th September at the Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange. 

Royal Cornwall Museum

The Royal Cornwall Museum will be reopening from 12th September, full to brim with treasures from Cornish history and showcases Cornish life and culture across the years. It’s a lovely little museum with a fab cafe and art shop next door.

Jubilee Pool 

The first geothermal lido has opened at the Jubilee Pool down in Penzance and we simply cannot wait to go and try it. Heated to 35 degrees by its own geothermal well. Make sure you check online for opening times and book your spot.
