It seems like all too quickly, those glorious summer days have chilled into brisk autumn. Whilst it’s nice to see the beaches and car parks a little quieter, it’s a little too soon for winter to be back. Still, Cornwall is so beautiful in autumn, the colours, the changing seas, the dark evenings lit with festive lights.
This October/November we celebrate Falmouth and Penryn, a hub of artistic and creative communities. From the innovative World War One exhibition at The Poly and discovering the contemporary creative scenes in Penryn, to sitting down with Nina Constable, a documentary filmmaker who will be a prime guest speaker at this year’s Cornwall Film Festival. It’s an area of Cornwall full of historical, natural and modern beauty it’s a pioneer for Cornwall’s entrepreneurial artists, creatives and start up business’
And, another bonus about the colder months sweeping in is the excuse to indulge in good, wholesome pub grub. Our Top 10 Places to Eat showcases our selection of the cosiest pubs in Cornwall for you to warm up, tuck in and enjoy watching nature take blustery control outside. Speaking of nature taking control, our contributing writer, Elizabeth Dale, journeys to the Lizard Peninsula to discover more about the Manacles, one of Cornwall’s most ruthless shipwrecking coastal formations that have seen thousands of lives lost and hundreds of vessels claimed by the hungry Cornish sea.
Finally, whilst it may be a little too early to fully start talking about the festive season, we do have a few tips to help get the ball rolling. Our seasonal shopper offers a range of Cornish themed gift vouchers, from painting to kayaking and we’ve got a special feature focusing on local, organic Cornish producers for Christmas dinner, be it apple brandy or Stargazy Pie, to save you battling the busy supermarkets and choosing a meal that is both local and environmentally friendly.
So wrap up, brave the winds, walk the empty beaches and enjoy the breezy autumnal winds before settling down with this latest edition of myCornwall Magazine!
